Thank you Michel and Céline!

Division News Michel Tremblay Céline BriseboisThis June, the Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada will say farewell to two wonderful staff members. Quebec Executive Director, Michel Tremblay, and Project Coordinator for Quebec, Céline Brisebois, started with AIA in 1993 and have done a wonderful job of representing the Association and the industry over the years. The activities the duo undertook were far from few and included organizing numerous committee meetings, professional development events, galas, golf tournaments, and many school and career fair booths. Their enthusiasm for the Association, its members and the industry has only continued to grow in their 20+ years with AIA. All of us at AIA will miss you both tremendously and wish you a happy and healthy retirement.
