ALIGN Update Re: Government Relations & Alberta Council Recent Poling Stats

Update from ALIGN E.D. December 12, 2018

Government Relations

According to Alberta Council Recent poling states:

THE UNITED CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADS BY 15% AMONG COMMITTED VOTERS BUT 26% OF ALBERTANS SAY THEY ARE UNDECIDED.

 WHILE THE UCP HOLDS A COMMANDING LEAD IN MOST OF ALBERTA THEY ARE TRAILING THE NDP IN EDMONTON

Speculation is an election will be called for March

Our government relations committee (GRC) is meeting in January to compose some questions that are relevant that you and your staff might want to ask those that come knocking on your doors or that you go visit in the New Year.  We encourage you to take the key messages (on our website) and invite candidates to your agencies to meet with you.  If not, go talk to them about the sector, your strengths and challenges wherever you can.  There will be many forums, or they will host office meeting or town halls.  Alternatively just ask for a meeting. They need to understand how the sector works, and how we provide excellent services.

The GRC will continue to offer suggestions and questions as they work through some of the communications research we have.  I have reached out and hope to meet with Jason Nixon and Leela Aheer from the UCP party and Stephen Mandel and Greg Clark from the Alberta Party.   We have also been offered the ability to submit a position statement to the UCP on the sector.  I am working on that now.

Here are the candidates as of today.  You can get contact information by googling them or checking the Election Alberta website.  We strongly encourage you to reach out to those in your home riding and your office riding.  We need to inform the politician about the sector.
