Register today for EOEP Courses on Strategic Planning and Regional Collaboration

February 28, 2018

Through our Elected Officials Education Program (EOEP), the AUMA and AAMDC are pleased to offer two brand new courses in tandem with upcoming events.

Council's Role in Strategic Planning

The EOEP’s Council’s Role in Strategic Planning course will explain the important role that strategic planning plays in building municipal sustainability, how councils can work together to set realistic goals, the basic elements of a strategic plan, how to set and assess strategic priorities, the roles of council and staff in strategic planning, and other information that will support you and your municipality in planning strategically for both the short- and long-term.

When:   Friday, March 16, 2018
Where:  Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB
Cost:     $340 plus GST

To register:  Registration is available through AUMA’s events page.

Regional Partnerships and Collaboration

The EOEP’s Regional Partnerships and Collaboration course will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about required collaborative tools such as intermunicipal collaboration frameworks, as well as other approaches municipalities can take to build meaningful partnerships with their municipal neighbours in a way that is fair and mutually beneficial.   

In addition to intermunicipal collaboration, the course will examine ways that municipalities can work with organizations within their community to provide strong and sustainable services. If you’re interested in how your municipality can transform collaboration from a requirement to an opportunity, sign up for Regional Partnerships and Collaboration to learn from experts in the field, as well as from your elected official colleagues.

When:   Monday, March 19, 2018, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Where:  Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB
Cost:     $340 plus GST

To register:  Registration is available through AAMDC’s convention registration page. Please note that you can register for the EOEP course without registering for AAMDC’s conference. 

MGA Change Management Tools

I also wanted to take this opportunity to ensure you are all aware, AUMA and AAMDC have also partnered to develop tools to help municipalities implement new Municipal Government Act requirements related to Councillor Code of Conduct and Public Participation/Public Notification.  More information on these tools and others that are under development will be provided at AUMA’s upcoming Municipal Leaders’ Caucus.  We will be seeking feedback from attendees on further tools and resources needed to support implementation of the new MGA, so make sure you are a registered.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
