Jack Hayden Consulting

On Time and Within Budget

Posted on March 21, 2013

Our changing environment in the way municipalities and the business community communicate with government has opened up new opportunities for Hayden and Associates to help get your message out. While the business community have been using the services of government relations firms for many years, it’s a new approach for many municipalities. Many of the issues municipalities face are unique to their area, it’s important to be at the table with government to inform and educate them on those needs. A service like ours, that monitors and tracks legislation and regulation on behalf of our clients, ensures that you will be at the table with the right people in government at the appropriate time. Having served as Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development, Infrastructure and Tourism Parks and Recreation, I know firsthand how difficult it is to get around Alberta to meet with all those people and hear their issues. While the use of a capable and effective government relations firm will greatly increase your ability to meet face to face with government to make certain your voice is heard. Our extensive experience at the Municipal, Provincial, Territorial and Federal table and the contacts acquired through those many years of service will help ensure that you are meeting with the right people at the right time.
At a time when all levels of government are faced with harsh fiscal realities, it becomes even more critical that you communicate the importance of the services you provide and the infrastructure that is required for prosperity, diversification and growth that will benefit your community and by extension your province or territory. Hayden and Associates are uniquely positioned to not only understand your issues but to help you resolve them. We understand the importance of hard work, honesty and integrity in helping you achieve your goals.
We would be pleased to meet with you at your office or our office in Edmonton to discuss your needs.
