Congratulations to Anne Martin and the United Van Lines team. United Van Lines was recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies for 2009. The award is presented to companies that have demonstrated business excellence. Recipients are determined through an independent evaluation process.
At CAM’s 2009 Annual Conference, CAM established new working committees:
In late February, John Levi attended the American Moving and Storage Association’s conference in Phoenix. The conference puts CAM in touch with moving associations throughout the US as well as movers, suppliers and potential speakers for CAM’s conference. It was an opportunity for CAM to exchange operating ideas with its moving-association colleagues.
CAM welcomed six new members in February. Check out their goods and services in our online directory. These are companies and people you will want to do business with.
In order to expedite CAM’s membership approval process, CAM’s board of directors has pre-approved membership applications from van-line agents. Applicants will still have to meet CAM’s membership requirements and submit the necessary documents.
CAM has maintained an online database of job applicants to help members get staff for the summer season. The applicants are organized by the type of position they are looking for and their postal code. Watch the CAM website as we add new applicants to the online listing.
We are in the final edit process for the 2010 Compensation Survey. This year we will try to provide comparative information with previous years. Participate in this survey and get information that will help you as you staff up for summer.
Now is the time to subscribe to CAM’s education system. A one-year subscription gives you unlimited access to the Canadian Professional Movers course for your sales and customer-service staff as well as access to the Helpers Video Training Module. The video provides basic information for helpers and gives you documented proof that the training has occurred.
