Steve Gusterson of Alumicor will receive a Life Membership Award in May during the Construction Specifications Canada (CSC) Conference 2023. The Life Membership Award is CSC’s highest accolade for an individual.

The Life Membership Award is CSC’s highest accolade for an individual. It is presented in recognition of outstanding service, dedication, support and commitment to the association and the design and construction community. Only 55 members have received the award since 1975.

“We join CSC in congratulating Steve on his Life Membership Award in a career filled with so many achievements,” says Avi Bar, Alimicor’s vice president of sales. “We applaud his exceptional commitment to the educational advancement of the industry. Alumicor and our customers are fortunate to benefit from Steve’s leadership, experience and in-depth knowledge.”

The Life Membership Award follows Gusterson’s 2021 induction into CSC’s College of Fellows. Throughout his career, Gusterson has volunteered on numerous CSC committees and has served as the Toronto chapter’s chairperson and director.

CSC twice recognized Gusterson’s leadership in Toronto with a Chapter Award of Merit (2009, 2013) and twice presented him with a Program Director’s Award (2014, 2022) for his contributions to the education program.

Besides his involvement with CSC, Gusterson’s support for the industry extends to the Ontario Glass and Metal Association (OGMA), where he serves as acting vice president. Since 2017, he also has been a contributing external member of the Architectural Technology and School of Science and Engineering Technology Program Advisory Committee for Durham College.

Gusterson previously assisted with developing the Ontario version of the “British Columbia Glazing Systems Specifications Manual,” which became the basis of the 2010 national version that is still referenced today.
