Description



JOIN US FOR ADVOCACY DAY AT QUEEN'S PARK
On Monday, March 9, the Ontario Chamber Network will hold its fifth annual Advocacy Day at Queen’s Park. Advocacy Day is a forum to share ideas on how to foster a competitive business climate and strong, prosperous communities. As a key benefit included with your membership, all Chamber Network members are encouraged to join us in Toronto for this important day.

This is your opportunity to interact directly with elected and non-elected officials, sharing top ideas and concerns of your members. You will have the opportunity to attend THREE meetings this year with senior government officials - more details to come!

This full-day event will bring together leaders from chambers of commerce and boards of trade from across Ontario. Last year, more than 52 local chambers were represented, and we hope to see even more in 2020!

PROGRAM TO INCLUDE
  • Small group consultations with senior government officials
  • Closing reception with MPPs
  • More to come!
As space is limited, OCC chamber members are permitted to have a maximum of two representatives attend. Chambers are encouraged to register one staff member and one board volunteer. Additional spaces may be offered after Monday, February 24 on a first-come, first served basis and as space permits

Please Note: Participating chambers/boards must be members in good standing of the OCC. Registration is included with annual OCC membership – exclusive of travel and accommodation expenses.

THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2020.
