Information and Advocacy

Collecting member information, promoting the Alliance near and far, and advocating for public policy and funding change are all important to deliver value through the Alliance.  This is often accomplished through collecting member and market feedback, connecting with media and thought leaders across Alberta / Canada / the world, regular member communications, and direct advocacy strategies with government and other decision makers.
