Associations Give Strength to the Industry

Both the BC and Ontario Boating Association conferences have now wrapped up for 2015 and with barely a lull for the holiday season, the boat show prep will be in full swing as the Toronto and Vancouver boat shows are right around the corner. Hopefully you had a chance to attend your association conference this year. Both that we have highlighted were well attended; they are an unparalleled opportunity for those in the Canadian boating industry to network with their peers, learn what's working and what isn't, benefit from the experience of industry icons and have a great deal of fun. The take-aways from association conferences stay with us and can be directly applied to Canadian marine businesses. If you haven't been involved in your association yet, take a few moments to explore the benefits and to discover the resources available to you. We hope you enjoy this issue of News Week. Feel free to contact us at any time with your thoughts.
