November 5, 2010 will be the 16th time that the Canadian American Business Council (CABC) hosts their annual Policy Forum and Business Achievement Awards Luncheon. The CABC is a non-profit organization established in 1987 that focuses on business issues that affect both Canada and the United States.


This year’s policy forum will focus on Canada/US relations in the wake of the U.S. midterm congressional elections. Election Day this year falls on November 2, just a few days prior to the CABC forum, and there will undoubtedly be a lot to talk about during the event. The policy forum will feature policymakers, elected officials from the United States and Canada, campaign insiders, and more discussing how the midterm elections might affect Canada/U.S. relations.


The day kicks off with an opening breakfast briefing with a keynote address from Bob Woodward with The Washington Post, a panel discussion on clean energy innovation in North America, and a second panel discussion on the Impact of Protectionism and Economic Recovery on Small and Medium Enterprises in North America.


Following the morning discussions, MNN’s own Joel Babbit will be presenting the luncheon keynote address. Babbit, CEO and co-founder of the Mother Nature Network, will discuss today’s environmental challenges and the “Responsibility Revolution.”


The CABC already revealed the honorees of this year’s Business Achievement Award but the two companies, Curves International and Mytrak Health System, will be formally recognized during the luncheon. These companies were recognized for “their collaboration in designing, developing, and installing CurvesSmart, a tangible method to successfully motivate club members by displaying to them the health benefits and disease prevention that is directly associated with their increased fitness.” Source: CABC
