While this convention includes the AGM, it is also when the members gather to vote on what they believe should be the focus of the OCC (Ontario Chamber) advocacy initiatives over the next year. This year there were 29 policy resolutions submitted (back in February) for review by the membership and there were 94 registered voters on the floor. A resolution presents a problem, provides a back story and makes recommendations on how they would like their problem solved. Generally, in order for the full room to agree, the solution has to serve the chamber network across the province. It's a democratic process that provides direction to the OCC staff about what we expect them to do.
