This fireside chat will explore how consulting engineers approach creating mutually beneficial solutions for their industry advocacy challenges. We will cover what steps ACEC-Ontario, as an industry organization, promotes to achieve evidence-based solutions that are relevant to realizing desired outcomes for both parties. The discussion will review relevant challenges that are overcome with efforts of consulting engineers and how to work with different elements of government and other stakeholders. Examples of real-life instances will be covered, both wins and losses, from advocacy efforts and what was learned from these occurrences.
