In order to operate effectively and remain accountable to members, the AAMDC committed to undertaking a review of the association’s governance structure every four years. The AAMDC undertook the most recent review, beginning in December 2016.  The Review Committee consisted of one member-representative from each of the AAMDC’s five districts as selected by district members, as well as a non-voting Chairperson intended to guide discussions. The composition of the Review Committee is as follows:

Non-voting Chairperson: Bob Barss – Reeve, MD of Wainwright and AAMDC Past President

District 1 Representative: Neil Wilson – Reeve, MD of Willow Creek

District 2 Representative: George Glazier – Reeve, County of Paintearth

District 3 Representative: Kara Westerlund – Councillor, Brazeau County

District 4 Representative: Cheryl Anderson – Reeve, County of Northern Lights

District 5 Representative: Eric Anderson – Councillor, County of Minburn 

The review committee has now finished their deliberations and will present their recommendations to the AAMDC Board of Directors, March 2, 2017.  Following this presentation, the report will be e-mailed directly to Reeves, Mayors, and CAOs. The recommendations of this report will be voted on by the membership at the Spring 2017 Convention. The Board Governance Review Committee will deliver the report to the membership for voting on recommendations on the last day of convention: Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 8:00am.
