Benefits of CONA for Canadian Companies
Industry advocate and direct membership support (e.g., national connections with advocacy groups; advice and assistance to operators).
Establishes industry standards for operations, conduct, and ethics, which can play an important role in developing appropriate operational guidelines/bylaws/etc. at the local (municipal) level.
A network of contacts (small to large operators, suppliers, educators, etc.).
Annual opportunity to meet other operators and discuss best practices.
My membership and involvement with CONA has been greatly beneficial. The members are a fantastic, friendly group of professionals that have a wealth of knowledge within the industry. The annual conference provides opportunities to develop new industry partners, and the down-to-earth conversations always help to foster business improvements (operational and financial). In a specialized industry such as ours, it’s invaluable to have contacts to call upon when sorting through issues and/or managing public relations.
