Description

Confirm now and mark the date for the next BWA Quarterly Networking Event March 28th in Toronto! In addition to the networking and the industry connections, you will make, learn how to improve and grow your business. This is a value-packed event you won’t want to miss!

The themes this quarter include:

  • Ministry of Labour: Friend or Foe? Many BWA members have had surprise visits from the MOL with mixed experiences. While all of us want to do the right thing for compliance and health and safety for our employees, an opportunity exists to bridge understanding between BWA members and the MOL.

    The BWA has invited Provincial Coordinator, Ron Landry from the Ministry of Labour’s Industrial Health and Safety Program. Ron will be presenting to wood manufacturers about trends in safety inspections as well as trends in health & safety blitzes. This talk is designed to provide resources to help businesses be proactive in health and safety. Its purpose is to assist vs. enforce for best business practices. We all agree our employees are our greatest assets. This talk will help manufacturers understand better what the MOL is trying to achieve so we can be prepared for any inspections, at any time. Come prepared to discuss your questions and concerns, and share experiences you have had to contribute to the constructive discussion!

  • Digital Marketing Strategies for Wood Manufacturing Companies. The digital world has created new opportunities for BWA members to promote their products and capabilities to potential and current customers. The challenge is that there are many moving parts, and they need to work together for your company’s digital marketing strategy to be effective. Chris Herbert, Managing Partner at Mi6 Agency and Reema Duggal, President, The Sitaran Group will provide a roadmap for successfully harnessing digital marketing tools for your business. If you are already engaged in digital marketing, they will also be providing new insights and trends to be aware of for the future for your improvement. Case examples of wood company’s strategies will be shared and discussed. Come prepared with your questions and ready to share your experiences/challenges/best practices with others!

BWA will also be providing detailed updates on the BWA Buying Group and other programs that can help your company! Come to make sure you are up to speed on all of the opportunities available with your BWA membership!
