ACEC’s Parliamentary Partners program kicks off with great success

ACEC’s Parliamentary Partners program, launched as a pilot over the summer, invited past participants of ACEC’s Parliament Hill Day to liaise with Members of Parliament in their own communities, engaging them in advocacy on an ongoing basis and creating a pool of experienced “citizen lobbyists” on behalf of the industry. Based on feedback to date, ACEC will be expanding the program to strengthen advocacy and image building leading up to the federal election in 2015.
