CNA2019

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO REGISTER FOR A WORKSHOP AT CNA2019!

In addition to a full conference and trade show, the CNA is holding two separate workshops on Wednesday, February 27, from 1-4 pm.

Workshop #1: Public Affairs

Government relations and communications go hand-in-hand and when combined can have much more effective outcomes. As such, it is valuable to know at least a little bit about both. In this workshop, you’ll learn about the new Ontario government and take a close look at who makes up “Ford Nation.” You’ll also learn what to expect from the federal government heading into an election year. Armed with this new knowledge, you’ll zero in on millennials, who will soon be largest voting demographic, to determine their priorities and the best way to reach them. Finally, you’ll take a crash course in social media marketing, analyze different platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, and determine the best way to leverage them to meet your business goals.

Workshop #2: Regulatory Affairs

In 2018, the federal government introduced Bill C-69: The Impact Assessment Act and Bill C-68: Amendments to the Fisheries Act. Both these pieces of legislation are expected to be passed in late 2018/ early 2019 with a targeted implementation date in spring 2019. The CNA2019 Regulatory Affairs Workshop will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear firsthand about the changes and the plans for implementation. We will also hear from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission regulatory affairs team.

Attendance at the pre-conference workshops is limited to employees of CNA member companies and government officials only, who are fully registered for CNA2019. Hence, registrations for the workshops will not appear for other registration categories.

To register, you add it to your registration during the process/link from the website.
