About Gerald Wallace
During his over 25 years as a Member, Director and Honorary PMAC Member, Gerald Wallace made numerous outstanding contributions to this association. He served as a Director seven times (one year terms 1980-83 and 1984-89), and was granted Honorary Member in 1988.
One very notable contribution was Gerald’s role as a key member of the committee that in 1988 achieved recognition by the Manitoba legislature of the purchasing designation, Certified Professional Purchaser (CPP). He contributed to the development of PMAC marketing and communication materials, and gave his time to design and create promotional displays used for the Annual Career Symposium. He was instrumental in creating a documentary about Winnipeg for the 1987 Winnipeg PMAC Conference, and also initiated and contributed to the written materials celebrating our 60th and 75th anniversaries of PMAC Manitoba.
His willingness to share his extensive knowledge and experience with the executive and members during those 25 years was invaluable to the development and operation of our association today.
The spirit of the Gerald Wallace Memorial Award is to encourage our members, and students, to gain professional knowledge and skills, and work together toward the betterment of our profession. The SCMA Manitoba Awards Committee encourages you to get involved and be recognized.
