The Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) held its annual general meeting (AGM) at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge during the group’s Annual Business Conference (ABC) held June 19 to 21, the group’s first in-person business conference since 2019.

At the AGM the CIPH welcomed Matt Robinson, vice president, Robinson Supply, as its new Chair for 2022-23.

Becoming the 75th Chair of the Institute, Robinson is following in the path of his father, Ross Robinson, who served as CIPH Chair in 2003-04.

Following an introduction by outgoing CIPH Chair Bill Hooper, sales manager – Atlantic region, Uponor, Robinson expressed his gratitude to the group and his excitement in traveling the country to visit each CIPH region. While acknowledging the work of those before him, Robinson is looking forward to working on the Institute’s strategic direction in the year ahead.

“One of the important initiatives is building more diversity. In recent years our Board has transformed and committed to building a more diverse group that brings different perspectives and challenges the status quo … as business leaders we need to push to create more diversity and inclusion in our work environments that are more representative of the communities we live in. Focusing on this will create opportunities and positive impact for all of us,” said Robinson.

The theme for the annual conference was Shift to Celebrate, as the CIPH embraces and adopts to changes in the industry and the association.

Founded in 1933, CIPH will be celebrating its 90th year in 2023, when it will be hosting its annual business conference June 18 – 20 in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
