ADMACQ has been chosen as 2007's Association of the year by the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE)

    LONGUEUIL, QC, April 25 /CNW Telbec/ - The Building Materials Retailers
Association of Quebec (ADMACQ) is proud to announce that it has won the 2007
CSAE's Association of the year Award. This prestigious award recognizes
healthy management and development work done by ADMACQ in the last year.

    In prestigious company

    By receiving this important distinction, ADMACQ joins an elite group of
associations that are part of the select club of recipients of the Association
of the year Award. Among them, we find l'Ordre des administrateurs agréés du
Québec, l'Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines en relations
industrielles agréées du Québec (now known under the name of l'Ordre des CRHA
et CRIA du Québec), the Canadian Plastics Industry Association - Quebec
Region, l'Ordre des comptables en management accrédités du Québec and the
Canadian Cancer Society - Quebec Division.

    A very happy President

    During the award ceremony, held last April 24th in Montreal, Donald
O'Hara, ADMACQ's President and General Manager, wanted to share the honour
with the members of his team and with ADMACQ's board members. "As we celebrate
the 50th anniversary of the association's magazine, Quart de Rond, and as
ADMACQ itself will soon turn seventy, I am delighted to notice the road we
have travelled through the years. I want to share this award with my
colleagues and, also with my predecessors."

    Working for its members

    ADMACQ today has over 800 member-dealers and member-vendors and pursues a
four part mission - it is committed to: inform its members on all pertinent
information on the market; be the sole representative for the industry with
governments as well as with the media; offer to its members, custom made
training programmes; offer management tools.

    Beside its regular activities, 2006 has been one the most prolific period
in its history:

    - Publish for a third consecutive year, the Renovex ADMACQ Index is a
      quarterly study on the habits of Quebec's consumers, in regards with
      their renovation and DIY projects. Inserted in Quart de Rond magazine,
      this exclusive index is now considered as one of the most important
      tool to know the trends in our industry.
    - ADMACQ has made a partnership agreement with Hardlines, an electronic
      publication on the retail home improvement industry in Canada. By this
      agreement, Hardlines is now available in French every week.
    - Finally, the last year has brought the major overhaul of Quart de Rond
