Progressive Alternatives Society’s Treasurer, Scott Jenkins, was recently appointed President of DIRTT, a very innovative company that provides cutting edge, stylish and green interior solutions for home and business. He has been Chief Financial Officer at DIRTT for some time. Scott is a great friend to PASC. He has served for many years as our Treasurer, and for the last several years has organized a very effective pre-Stampede fundraiser for us called Sugarshack. Stay tuned for more details on this year’s Sugarshack. In the meantime, take a look at DIRTT’s work here, and congratulations again, Scott, from all your friends at PASC.
