ACEC's upcoming initiatives for 2014-2015


ACEC President John Gamble, ACEC Chair Jason Mewis, and ACEC-NB Executive Director Nadine Boudreau discuss member participation and future directions at ACEC-NBs recent AGM

In 2013, the ACEC Board of Directors approved a series of initiatives and programs aligned with ACEC’s three-year Strategic Plan. ACEC has since expanded member outreach and engagement, expanded private sector outreach, begun the development of ACEC’s Parliamentary Partners program and developed a media strategy. Here’s a look at what we’re working on now.

Member Engagement Plan: ACEC is developing a member engagement plan and will be seeking input from Member Organizations (MOs) on the plan and working with MOs on its implementation.

Recruitment/Marketing Study: ACEC will identify firms that service primarily private sector clients and who are not currently members to understand services and programs that ACEC could offer – that would provide value to these firms – to strengthen recruitment and broaden membership. MOs will have input into an RFP and results will be shared with MOs.

Member Value Study: To strengthen member retention and recruitment, ACEC plans to undertake a comprehensive study of the existing membership to identify programs and activities that provide the best value proposition to the association’s members. MOs will have input into an RFP and results will be shared with MOs.

Increased MO Travel: ACEC will allocate more time and financial resources for travel to MO jurisdictions. This will allow increased direct interaction and engagement between ACEC , MOs and member firms. It will also allow ACEC more opportunities to support MO activities and events.

Leadership Summit Marketing Plan: This plan will promote member participation in ACEC’s annual Leadership Summit and Annual General Meeting.

Parliamentary Partners: This new government relations program will engage participants of Parliament Hill Day on an ongoing basis through meetings with federal Members of Parliament in their ridings and communities. The program will   strengthen advocacy and member engagement as well as facilitate knowledge transfer on advocacy initiatives.

Business Integrity: The association’s Board of Directors has adopted a draft position statement developed by ACEC’s Task Force on Business Integrity. This statement of principles and policies related to business integrity and transparency commits ACEC to work with Member Organizations to develop information and tools to assist member firms.
