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 spring convention features our annual tradeshow, and the fall convention hosts the opposition party leader panel, as well as our RMA Board elections and partners program.
New for 2021 – the Tradeshow will now occur in conjunction with our fall convention. It’s an excellent opportunity for vendors and delegates to connect and share how their organizations can benefit members’ municipalities.
During the fall convention, we present two awards as well as honor those who have passed away during the year. The awards are:
All conventions will be at the Edmonton Convention Centre unless otherwise stated.
