[Name of MLA]

Dear [Full MLA Name],

I am a financial advisor who serves the public in your riding. I am also a member of
Advocis, The Financial Advisors Association of Canada, a national professional
association that prepares, promotes and protects financial advisors in the public
interest. Advocis, which has 1,500 members in Alberta, represents financial advisors by
providing career support, professional designations, a code of professional conduct,
education, and professional liability insurance.

I am writing to request a meeting with you during our Advocis Day at the Alberta
Legislature on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. The purpose of this meeting would be for
me to provide you with some background about Advocis, and to discuss some of the
regulatory and investor protection issues affecting financial advisors and consumers in
Alberta, including how to:

      ensure the continued success and strength of small business financial advisors,
       to ensure Alberta consumers continue to receive sound financial advice;
      develop smart regulations that ensure consumers have ample access to and
       choice of professional financial advice, and allow advisors to continue to deal
       with their clients effectively; and
      enhance consumer protection and promote a level playing field for everyone who
       works in the financial services sector.

I would also like to invite you to the Advocis reception that will be held at the Royal
Glenora Club (11160 River Valley Road Northwest) between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. A
formal invitation to the reception will be mailed to you.

Thank you in advance for considering meeting with me. I will be in touch with your office
very soon.

Yours sincerely,

[Your name]
