New session available exclusively to AFHTO members FREE:

We invite you to a government relations fireside chat at the end of the day on Wednesday, Oct. 24. Entry begins at 6:00 PM and the chat begins at 6:30 PM.

Melissa Lantsman (Vice President, Public Affairs) and Matt Boudreau (Account Director, Public Affairs) from Hill+Knowlton Strategies will join us to discuss the new government’s priorities and how we can best demonstrate value that aligns with them.

Melissa worked for the Harper government for a decade and most recently ran the campaign war room for Premier Ford. Matt brings over six years experience working for both the McGuinty and Wynne governments, including three years in issues management and policy for both the Minister and Associate Minister of Health. Together, they bring insight that will help teams work with our new government.

This is a conversation on what you need to know to navigate these uncertain times and how you can promote the great work you’re doing in your teams to support the new government’s health agenda. This will help set the narrative around the importance of team-based care.

Bring along questions, or send us questions that matter to you in advance.

We’ll still have hors d’oeuvres but now you can get them free of charge. If you’ve already registered, all you need to do is go to your confirmation email, click to change or update your registration and add the chat.
