The RMA hosts two conventions per year, one in spring and one in fall, at the Edmonton Convention Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Each convention sees a variety of plenary addresses and workshops, as well as the ministerial forum and resolutions session. In addition to these events, the fall convention hosts the opposition party leader panel, as well as our RMA Board elections and partners program. Starting in Fall 2021, the RMA and Canoe Tradeshow is held during the fall convention to better serve our members as they go through the budget process within their municipalities.
The RMA’s 2022 Spring Convention kicked off with a western feel as the RMA Board of Directors took the stage. With President Paul McLauchlin channeling the popular series Yellowstone, each board member was assigned their Dutton family alter-ego. Read the rest of the highlights from our recent convention!
The RMA & Canoe Tradeshow will now be hosted in conjunction with the fall convention to better serve our members as they go through the budget process within their municipalities. It’s an excellent opportunity for vendors and delegates to connect and share how their organizations can benefit members’ municipalities.
