Calgary's Housing and Development Industry to Host Mayoral Panel and Aldermanic Forum

Canadian Home Builder's Association-Calgary Region and the Urban Development Institute's Votecalgary.ca Platform Takes Centre Stage

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2010) - The Canadian Home Builder's Association– Calgary Region (CHBA) and the Urban Development Institute (UDI) Calgary will be hosting two key member events leading up to Calgary's election on October 18, 2010.

CHBA and UDI launched votecalgary.ca, a hub for up-to-date election news, almost three months ago and have been leveraging the website to provide pertinent information on topics that are of key importance to the 28,000 Calgarians who work in the housing and development industry. Votecalgary.ca has been a critical tool to inform, engage and mobilize industry members and now the two organizations will host for its members a Mayoral Panel on September 28th in the Palomino Room, Stampede Park, and an Aldermanic Forum on October 13th at the Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre.

"These two specific events will enable our members to find out where declared candidates participating in our site stand on key issues pertaining to the housing and development industry," said Jenelle Wolhberg, votecalgary.ca Project Manger. "And through votecalgary.ca we will be able to post information resulting from the events to ensure all of our members are kept informed as we move closer to Election Day." 

Votecalgary.ca is a positive and educational platform to help lead a variety of debates on topics pertaining to the development of the city of Calgary. The votecalgary.ca website has been designed to provide industry members with discussion and information, encouraging them to cast an informed vote on October 18th.
