#CleanToronto : A&E Management doing our part

As an Association Management Company, we spend our days helping small and medium size organizations make great impact. We help Trade and Professional Associations apply best practices and economies of scale to stretch finite resources. We also know the value of hard work, of rolling up your sleeves and pitching in.

Participating in the City of Toronto’s 20 Minute Corporate Challenge was a logical extension of our think global, act local attitude; this attitude helps our small but mighty team lead multiple active and growth oriented Not-for-Profits.

Opting into a community based activity, also reflects our individual and corporate values of volunteerism, and social responsibility. From leading Heritage Toronto walks, to sitting on boards, and contributing countless volunteer hours to a wide array of causes; each member of the A&E team walks-the-walk when it comes to making a difference in our community and broader society.

On Friday, April 21, 2017 from 2pm-2:20pm we made our community a little bit better (and cleaner). We started in our own back-yard, collecting trash and recyclables from the boulevards along Tycos Drive where we come to work each day. To quote Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.” We are small but we are mighty.
