GAMA Canada ' Looking Ahead to Continued Success by Gregory Powell

Greg Powell GAMA International Canada is the only association in Canada dedicated to providing and promoting networking and professional development opportunities to management-level professionals in the financial services industry.

Today we are one of Advocis' strongest business units with over 900 members and growing. However, this wasn't always the case; eight years ago we only had 437 members and were declining in enrollment. There was even talk about shutting down GAMA Canada as it was considered a financial liability and believed not to be of value.

Thanks to the efforts of our board members and the support of our sponsors and members, GAMA International Canada survived and has grown from both a membership and industry involvement standpoint. We have had increasingly more impact on our financial leaders and as a result, on client relations and the financial advice industry as a whole since 2008.
