What are Geographic Councils?

Geographic Councils are 13 local meetings held across the province, twice yearly.

The purpose of these meetings is to deliver a consistent message of “damage prevention is a shared responsibility”.

Geographic Councils help you to connect and network with local communities to discuss and promote damage prevention, the Best Practices, the ORCGA, and local developing issues.

Expand your contact networks and business development opportunities, at both the local and provincial level.

The Geographic Councils are free of charge and includes a meal.

Want to be included on the invite list for a specific GC?  Please send an email to office@orcga.com.
