Advocacy works to ensure that provincial and federal decision-makers, industry and other relevant stakeholders understand and incorporate rural Alberta’s best interests in their policies. The Board of Directors and Advocacy sit on numerous committees and task forces in order to build strong working relationships with key stakeholders. This increases our ability to influence legislation.
To ensure full transparency and accountability, Advocacy provides communications updates of all issues and meetings. Advocacy positions are based on member resolutions passed at each convention.
