The 2020 AUMA Convention is coming, and this year’s theme is Together We Can!

Our full convention is going to be offered virtually this year. 

We are excited to announce three great Canadians that will be joining the 2020 Convention lineup:

  • Opening Keynote - Peter Mansbridge (September 24 @ 9:45 a.m.)
  • Evening Entertainment - Brett Kissel (September 24 @ 7:00 p.m., following the Mix & Mingle event)
  • Closing Keynote - Hayley Wickenheiser (September 25 @ 11:50 a.m.)

While this year’s event might look a bit different, members across Alberta will continue to gather for the same great content, even if we all aren’t under the same roof.

Registration for Convention is now open and grants access to:

  • dialogue sessions with provincial ministers;
  • two exciting keynotes;
  • resolutions;
  • board elections;
  • award-winning entertainment; 
  • virtual networking events; and
  • a week of education sessions leading up to the live event on September 24 and 25 (one day shorter than our regular program).

Registration will also provide urban elected officials the opportunity to vote on resolutions and board elections. Elected officials must be registered as attendees to participate in voting. *Please note, administrators and non-members are not permitted to vote.

We know that our members are currently facing financial restraint, so we have significantly lowered our typical registration fees for this year:

Virtual member registration fee: $100
Virtual non-member registration fee: $200
