ACEC-SK MLA Day a Huge Success !!

Approximately 25 representatives from ACEC-SK member firms met with 30+ politicians and/or senior public officials on March 12 in Regina to raise awareness of the consulting engineering industry.  Our delegation reinforced that consulting engineers play a significant role in supporting provincial economic growth, from the planning phases right through to implementation.

Here are some of the testimonials shared by ACEC-SK participants:

Thank you for arranging MLA Day. I see MLA Day as one of the most valuable events ACEC-SK arranges annually… It is so important that we stay connected with government leaders and officials… It was great to be able to be part of bringing a unified message to the government on behalf of the association.

...positive and constructive questions regarding how our expertise can help government…

The day was great! Very well organized and orchestrated. MLA’s were attentive and responsive to our purpose and desire to establish and maintain a long term relationship.

The end-of-day reception also provided a good opportunity for further discussion and simply connecting with other MLAs that didn’t attend one of our meetings.

The MLA Day was a huge success not only for ACEC-SK but also the MLA’s and senior officials we met with…We left good impressions of the value ACEC-SK can bring and I believe we achieved excellent traction and improved name recognition within government. We need to build on this newly developed momentum and keep the ACEC-SK advocacy efforts moving forward

Momentum continues to build, with association representatives exploring all opportunities to keep the conversation going. Relationship building remains key to informing governmental decision-makers about the value consulting engineers bring to the Saskatchewan economy.

ACEC-SK would like to thank the many politicians and senior public officials who agreed to take our meetings, all the individuals from member firms that came out on that early spring day to represent our industry, and to all those who worked so hard behind the scenes to make the day a success.
