Dear Community members,

We were contacted today by Global Affairs Canada regarding an opportunity to serve Canada on an international body: the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC).  Canada’s three ABAC members are appointed by the PM to bring the concerns of the Asia-Pacific business community to the attention of APEC and Leaders. One of Canada’s ABAC seats has been vacant since last January, and the other two will become vacant in the next year.
