Parliament, Political advocacy
Political advocacy is an increasingly important activity within ActSmart. Independently, small leisure sectors cannot expect to influence the people who have such a big impact on our businesses and our industries, but by working together our combined voice can be heard and can make a real difference.
ActSmart is represented in a number of different organisations, all of whom are working for the interests of speciality retailing. Working within this context also gives us a fascinating insight into some of the big issues affecting small businesses as well as a wealth of useful information, which we can feed back into the ActSmart community to better inform and educate our subscribers.
