Showcase your municipality’s people and businesses at the 2020 AUMA Convention

August 12, 2020

There are two fantastic opportunities for AUMA’s members to showcase their municipality’s people and businesses on Thursday, September 24 during our AUMA Convention.

  1. Tribute to our province's front-line workers - With the high level of stress and uncertainty that COVID-19 has added to our lives, we are creating a video to recognize and applaud the efforts of dedicated people serving in our communities. Please send us high-resolution pictures taken in your municipality featuring front-line workers in action, such as:
    • health and social care: doctors, nurses, midwives, social workers
    • emergency response: firefighters, paramedics, EMTs, law enforcement officers
    • education and childcare: teachers, educational assistants, childcare workers
    • food, utilities, communications, and financial services: grocery, banking, oil, gas, electricity, waste disposal, sanitation, postal, and delivery workers

Please send an email to the address below to receive an AUMA photo release form and collection site address to upload your photos.

  1. Alberta local virtual networking event - Between 6 and 7 p.m. on September 24, we are holding an event specially designed to showcase passionate promoters of local, made-in-Alberta food and beverage. You, and the supplier if you would like, will have five minutes to show and tell Convention delegates from your region about a local product in your municipality. We are hoping the supplier will donate the product, or a product gift certificate, to be added to a prize basket from each region. Prizes will be drawn at the end of the event. Showcase slots are limited and will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.

The submission deadline for both opportunities is Monday, September 7 at 5 p.m.

Your participation is deeply appreciated. Please contact Marisa Ryan, Project Coordinator, at events@auma.ca or 780-409-7496 if you have any questions.
