RMA will provide members with an updated Order Paper and participation instructions in advance of the virtual resolution session on April 24
Due to the cancellation of the RMA 2020 Spring Convention, RMA will hold its first-ever virtual resolution session on April 24, 2020.
As the resolution session will only be open to RMA voting members and relevant municipal staff, an email was previously sent to all RMA member CAOs and mayors / reeves providing an overview of the session and requesting that councils save the date and time of the session.
RMA is currently in the process of finalizing and testing the virtual resolution process and will provide detailed instructions to mayors / reeves and CAOs at least two days in advance of the session via email.
To fully participate in the session, councillors will require an internet connection, microphone and audio capabilities, and a cell phone with text capabilities.
Municipal staff may observe the session but may not vote.
In addition to participation instructions, RMA will also provide members with the final resolution Order Paper that will include any emergent resolutions. The RMA Resolution Committee is meeting on the morning of Monday, April 20 to review submitted emergent resolutions, and the final resolution package will be shared by email and posted on RMAlberta.com
as soon as possible following the meeting.
Any members wishing to propose amendments to resolutions included in the resolution package are encouraged to email proposed amendments in advance of the session to RMA Senior Policy Advisor Wyatt Skovron at wyatt@RMAlberta.com
, noting the resolution number in your email. Amendments can be made during the session but submitting in advance will support an efficient resolution process.
The revised deadline for emergent resolutions is Friday, April 17 at 4:00 pm. No emergent resolutions submitted after that deadline will be considered for addition to the Order Paper.
