The story of CEP Live – SCEP EnDirect

CEP, one of Canada’s largest private sector unions, wanted to expand its communications reach beyond the convention centre walls during its most important political event – the biannual national convention. The communications team worked with the Rideau Institute to consolidate their traditional communications products – a daily video, printed newsletter, and press releases – into a new online “micro-website.”

The results: At very low additional expense, existing communications tools were consolidated and refocused for an online environment, reaching a much larger audience. The website featured live webcasting of major speakers, video-on-demand, a daily photo gallery, news and announcements. The daily content was promoted to its thousands of members and allies through email marketing. Members from across the country participated in a special interactive workshop to help plan the union’s major campaign to protect pensions.
