Call for volunteers! Office Accommodation Consultation Committee (OACC)

February 24, 2020

The Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE)’s lease is coming up for renewal in September 2023. The President and the National Executive Committee, with the assistance of members of CAPE's management team, are looking at all available options to find the best cost-savings scenario while maintaining a central and easily accessible head office location to best serve its membership.

CAPE has established the Office Accommodation Consultation Committee (OACC) and is seeking volunteers to participate in consultation sessions between April and August 2020 to help determine where CAPE’s head office will be located after September 2023.

The consultation will allow members to provide their input and share their concerns in an open, respectful and transparent manner. The sessions will also offer volunteers a unique opportunity to learn more about the intricacies involved in office space logistics and give them a voice at the table to share their thoughts and ideas.

The recommendations delivered during the consultation sessions will be consolidated and provided to the NEC’s Office Accommodations Steering Committee for final decisions.
