The development of policy and advocacy on behalf of the Ontario business community is at the core of our business. As a grassroots organization, the activities of Ontario’s Business Advocate are greatly enhanced by the participation of our members – chambers, boards of trade, and corporate – on our policy and advocacy priorities.
The OCC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Convention allows members to learn from subject experts, debate policy resolutions and formulate the OCC’s annual advocacy strategies. Our annual financial reports are also made public to our membership at this meeting. Local Chambers bid to host the AGM & Convention so the Chamber Network can see and learn about all areas of our province.
On April 26-28, 2018, Ontario’s Chamber Network will gather in Hamilton, Ontario to debate policy and chart the course for the year to come.
The AGM & Convention represent one of the most significant opportunities for chamber leaders from across the province to come together to network with peers, debate policy issues that are of significant importance to the Ontario business community, and to shape our advocacy agenda for the year ahead.
