Each year since 1982, the Alberta School of Business and its Business Advisory Council (BAC) have presented the Canadian Business Leader Award to a Canadian of distinction. CBLA recipients are individuals who have demonstrated leadership, business acumen and success, an entrepreneurial spirit, integrity, and a commitment to the community. The selection committee is comprised of members of the BAC, as well as students, faculty and alumni.
This year, the award will be presented to Elyse Allan, President and CEO of General Electric (GE) Canada, at the annual CBLA dinner on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 in Edmonton.
The CBLA dinner is the School’s signature event and is attended by over 800 members of the Alberta business community. As well, thanks to sponsoring individuals and companies, over 100 students are also able to attend the dinner.
