HPBA Canada needs your help

If you are not going to EXPO, or have scaled back your plans, we would like you to consider the following:

The HPBExpo is a major contributor to HPBAC’s annual revenue. In 2021 the amount received was ZERO. This year HPBAC’s revenue from the show is projected to be down by at least 68% compared to 2019.

To adjust, since March of 2020, HPBAC has reduced costs by over 35% and, while we hoped for a better year in 2022, revenue continues to be significantly lower. We won’t be hosting our traditional Canadian reception at the show and we’ve transitioned to a virtual AGM to continue cost reductions.

Meanwhile, the political and policy landscape in Canada has undergone significant change and adjustment. Politically, consecutive governments have adopted robust climate change objectives and are moving towards increased regulation in areas that will impact this industry. This creates opportunities and challenges. One thing is for certain, advocacy is required to advance and protect the interests of members. 

If you’re not attending the show, please consider contributing a fraction of the money you’ve saved on travel toward helping your association stay strong. We need this seed money to move forward with important work on your behalf. Even if you don’t normally attend, we need your help too.

 Our goal is $50,000

We’re preparing for strategic planning this year to position the association to meet current and coming challenges. This money is a one-time request that will support the association as we implement:

  • New, non-dues revenue streams
  • Better training opportunities for members
  • Resources to access government funding opportunities

Your contribution will help HPBAC through our third year of reduced funding from the trade show, in-person training and other traditional revenues that have declined throughout the pandemic. We believe we’ll come out of this period of transition stronger than ever. All contributors will be recognized in our newsletter, on our website and in our 2022 Annual Report.
