The AAMDC is pleased to provide the membership with an update on advocacy efforts in theSpring 2017 Advocacy Report Card.
Section 1 of the Advocacy Report Card
includes the Government of Alberta responses to resolutions endorsed at the fall 2016 convention and Section 2 provides an update on all other active resolutions. The AAMDC would like to emphasize that Section 1 only reflects the AAMDC’s reaction to initial response received from the Government of Alberta and that further advocacy efforts on all resolutions are in progress.
The AAMDC resolutions database
has been updated to reflect the status changes and developments included in the Spring 2017 Advocacy Report Card
As an advocacy organization, it is important to note that just because a resolution has been assigned a status of Accepted, it is still reviewed for every Advocacy Report Card
. Following each review, the status can be changed depending on developments that have occurred. Even after resolutions expire, regardless of their status, the AAMDC continues to refer to them when related issues arise.
Resolutions form an integral part of the AAMDC’s advocacy efforts and the AAMDC would like to acknowledge the work the membership undertakes in drafting and debating resolutions that reflect issues of importance to rural municipalities. Endorsed resolutions provide direction for the association and enable focused advocacy efforts.
