    Advocacy is at the forefront of what Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade do.  Getting our A.C.T.S – Together!  will help you enhance your Advocacy, Communications, Training, and Sales skills – and we'll do it Together!

    • From working to improve our advocacy efforts at the local & provincial levels to enhancing how we communicate those efforts and take them to the next level will be discussed.  Retention and sales will also play a starring role along with open forums, discussions and networking.
    • Walk the ‘red carpet’ with Sevaun Palvetzian, Paul Deegan, Sandra Dueck, Michelle Eaton, David Wojcik, Jim Janzen and more!
    • Meet our supporting cast at the ‘Supporter Showcase’ to discuss how our partners can help your organization grow and join us at the Toronto Region Board of Trade for a Thursday evening ‘Dinner to Remember’. 
    • You'll be the STAR on Friday as we give you the floor to open the discussions with what matters to you!

    • "Wag the Dog": How to Advance Your Agenda Through Effective Engagement & Communications
    • "The Neverending Story": How Effective Advocacy is an intersection of Public Affairs in Story-telling

  • CEO News

  • "I attended my first Chamber Executives of Ontario Conference in the second month as the Executive Director of the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce. I cannot express how valuable it was for me. My fellow Executives were welcoming, engaging and fun. I was apprised of the challenges and successes that many Chambers face and given suggestions, advice and tools to help improve my Chamber. I quickly made great connections and felt that I could call on any attendee to ask advice. The Conference was well organized and had a very enthusiastic and engaging keynote speaker who gave practical advice that I was able to take away and implement. I recommend this conference for Chamber Executives at any stage of their career."
