RAMONA COEY,
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

IN THE 2017 EDITION of The Western Journal, President Roger Phaneuf
stated, "With the energy of the new provincial government, skills of MCAM
staff and strength of our membership, the Board of Directors of MCAM
believes 2017 is the 'perfect storm' for exploring why we exist and testing
our relevance...We are committed to providing value to our industry."
With this commitment, MCAM Board of Directors engaged Warren
Wilson of Intersol Group to facilitate the Board's development of a strategic plan for the association. A five-year Strategic Plan was created
which articulates the vision for the association and the priorities of how
this vision should be achieved.
The transformational leadership of the Board of Directors has provided the staff of MCAM a clear mandate of how to provide value for the
MCAM Membership.

MCAM Organizational
Development
The Board of Directors has completed a review of the association
By-laws and Board of Directors committee structure to ensure they have the
systemic base to provide credibility with
government and industry stakeholders
as well as proactively address the needs
of the membership.

Government Partnerships
and Advocacy
Engaging political leaders and government staff at all levels is a priority in
promoting industry issues.
Prompt Payment - Federal - MCAM participated in a lobbying day in
Ottawa last spring, in support of Bill S-224. Back in Manitoba, we continued to
meet with MPs and lobby for prompt payment legislation. MCAM supported
Bill S-224, as well as the Key Principles of Prompt Payment identified by the
National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC). Bill S-224 passed
third reading in the Senate and the Federal government is now conducting
a stakeholder consultation; MCAM has participated in the consultation and
re-pledged its support of Bill S-224 and the Key Principles of the NTCCC.
Prompt Payment - Provincial - MCAM has been actively involved with
prompt payment legislation efforts at the provincial level. Working with 30
trade organizations, the Manitoba Prompt Payment Coalition (MBPP), and
with stakeholders across the industry, MCAM has supported key principles
of the coalition for a Manitoba approach to prompt payment legislation. Reg
Helwer, MLA for Brandon West, has been championing legislation on behalf
of the Coalition. Hopes of legislation being introduced in spring 2018 are high.
Apprenticeship Manitoba - MCAM has strengthened its relationship with
Apprenticeship Manitoba. The Board of Directors has endorsed applications
for MCAM members to sit on Provincial Advisory Committees, participated
