In December, the AAMDC issued a member bulletin announcing the formation of an AAMDC Climate Change Advisory Committee. The AAMDC was pleased to receive a number of applications from across Alberta and would like to thank all applicants who put their name forward.
The AAMDC Board of Directors selected one committee member from each district based on those submitted:

- Carbon levy impacts on rural municipalities
- Transition program for closing of coal-fired plants
- Legislative opportunities and challenges related to renewables
