Smooth Sailing at ACTA AGM


ACTA’s annual annual general meeting at the International Centre in Mississauga yesterday (May 12) was a speedy affair that served to elect a board of directors and introduce several technical by-law amendments.

The quick meeting, attended by about 30 members, was a reflection of generally smooth waters for the association, with president Dave McCaig noting that professional certification in Ontario continues to be a top priority.

“Our momentum continues,” he stated, revealing that the success rate of the program since ACTA and CITC merged was “30 times higher” in the past two years than previously.

A campaign with TICO in Ontario also increased consumer awareness of ACTA agents by 3% to 18% in the past year.
ACTA also recognized outgoing chair Rob Durant (right in photo) at the end of his term with a small gift presented by McCaig (l).
