Stacie Keenan Director of External Communications, Public Relations and Social Media
“Mary Kay Cosmetics Ltd has been associated with Cosmetic Alliance Canada for 40 years. Historically, our relationship with the Alliance has always proven to be extremely beneficial, particularly with respect to their efforts in the regulatory field. Our company has participated with the Alliance on many different levels and we always feel that we get full value for the money we spend on our membership dues. Given the many changes and increased complexity of the regulatory area, our relationship with CA will become even more valuable in the years to come.”

The regulatory update meetings held twice a year are invaluable; information shared by government officials on topics of importance to the industry. “
