2020 AUMA Convention

The 2020 AUMA Convention - Together We Can!

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

We are excited to announce that Peter Mansbridge will be our opening keynote speaker!

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.

Our full convention is going to be offered virtually this year. However, if provincial restrictions for in-person events ease, we will allow each urban municipal member to send one individual to attend in-person. If necessary, we will follow up with our members at the beginning of August to modify a virtual registration to an in-person registration. 

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 September 24th & 25th (one day shorter than our regular program).

Wednesday, September 23:
Evening Welcome: 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Thursday, September 24:
Morning program: 9:00 am to 12:00
Afternoon program: 1:00pm to 4:30 pm
Evening event: 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Friday, September 24:
Morning only: 9:00 am to 12:30 pm

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

Stay tuned for more exciting speaker announcements in the coming weeks!
