CAEM Advocacy Roundtable: Supporting Recovery for Trade & Consumer Shows in Canada

Thank you to those who have participated in our advocacy strategy by sending a letter to your MP.  The action you have taken is working and meetings are being scheduled. 

If you have not had a chance to send a letter to your MP, please consider doing so ASAP.  We are now at a critical juncture in this process whereby the more industry voices that are heard by the Federal Government the more our case will be strengthened, and the more likely we are to be successful.

Please take a moment to help CAEM amplify our message by sending a letter of support to your MP.  The process is very easy, just fill in your address, your name, email and press the “send letter” button.   We also encourage you to share the link with your staff and colleagues and also consider sharing it through your social networks.

Should you succeed in securing a meeting with your MP, please reach out to the CAEM office at 416.787.9377 or [email protected] so we can ensure CAEM's President and/or Executive Director, along with a member from the Crestview Strategy team, can join you for this meeting.


Speaking of advocacy…on Monday, March 29th, CAEM will host an interactive discussion and update regarding our advocacy initiatives.  CAEM President, Bianca Kennedy and Jason Clark from Crestview Strategy will give an overview of our Federal Advocacy progress. They will be joined by regional representatives from CAEM's  Industry Coalition to discuss what is happening from a provincial perspective.
