The Elected Officials Education Program (EOEP), a joint venture of the AAMDC and AUMA, is Alberta’s only professional education program designed for municipally elected officials. 

Building on the success of Munis 101, the EOEP be offering two courses in March, in conjunction with the AUMA Municipal Leaders’ Caucus and the AAMDC Spring Convention.

Details of the upcoming courses are as follows:

Council’s Role in Strategic Planning 
The role of elected officials is to lead. They determine the long-term goals and priorities of their municipality. Doing this effectively takes skill, and an understanding of how to separate the day-to-day from the big picture. The EOEP’s Council’s Role in Strategic Planning course will explain the important role that strategic planning plays in building municipal sustainability, how councils can work together to set realistic goals, the basic elements of a strategic plan, how to set and asses strategic priorities, the roles of council and staff in strategic planning, and other information that will support you and your municipality in planning strategically for both the short- and long-term.

When:             Friday, March 16, 2018
Where:            Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB
Cost:               $340 plus GST

Regional Partnerships and Collaboration
In life, and in the municipal world, working with your neighbours is not always easy. If done right, it can provide major benefits. The EOEP’s Regional Partnerships and Collaboration course will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about required collaborative tools such as intermunicipal collaboration frameworks, as well as other approaches municipalities can take to build meaningful partnerships with their municipal neighbours in a way that is fair and mutually beneficial.

In addition to intermunicipal collaboration, the course will examine ways that municipalities can work with organizations within their community to provide strong and sustainable services. If you’re interested in how your municipality can transform collaboration from a requirement to an opportunity, sign up for Regional Partnerships and Collaboration to learn from experts in the field, as well as from your elected official colleagues.

When:             Monday, March 19, 2018
Where:            Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB
Cost:               $340 plus GST
