Welcome, new councillors! As elected officials you are now a part of the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA). To get you up to speed, we have created RMA 101 – a virtual guide to your association! The overall program includes multiple resources and deliverables, including an interactive document that features embedded videos, written information, and links to resources to familiarize you with your association. We are also offering three webinars intended to introduce you to different aspects of what the RMA does. Registration details for those are farther down the page. RMA 101 may not cover every question you have, but it will give you a starting point and advice on how to learn more. So sit back and relax as RMA President Paul McLauchlin takes you on a journey to learn how the RMA will support you and your fellow members in building strong rural communities.
