Volunteer with the Political Action NetworkTo become a part of the Political Action Network (PAN), an individual must meet the following criteria:
- The volunteer must be an OSPE member in good standing
- To avoid any confusion, PAN volunteers cannot be members of PEO's Government Liaison Program
- Must live in a riding requiring PAN representation
- Finally, we ask for an enthusiastic desire to be a strong voice for the engineering profession
Step 1: Recruitment
Interested volunteers should contact our advocacy team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2: Training
Attend a PAN training session to learn about government relations and OSPE's policy issues
Step 3: Meeting the MPP
OSPE will schedule a 30-minute meeting with you and your MPP (usually twice a year) and provide briefing materials. Briefing calls with OSPE's Policy and Government Relations staff can be arranged prior to the MPP meeting.
Step 4: Preparing for a Constituency Meeting
OSPE has developed this comprehensive guide to help PAN reps understand how the process unfolds, how to prepare for a constituency meeting, and how to effectively communicate key messages to their MPP on behalf of the Society.
Step 5: Ongoing Community Presence
OSPE staff keep PAN volunteers up-to-date on events in their particular ridings, to which they are encouraged to attend
