As a member of the MGA Review Advisory Committee, the AAMDC is playing a significant role in helping Municipal Affairs provide an efficient and informative consultation process for the MGA Review. To ensure the interests and priorities of our members are represented, the AAMDC will host a series of consultation workshops across the province to gather input. Facilitated by AAMDC’s Advocacy staff, the intent of these sessions is to discuss elements of the MGA that could be improved and those that are beneficial and should be retained.
This will be an opportunity for AAMDC members to discuss the functionality of the MGA and provide AAMDC with further direction to ensure the association is well positioned to contribute to the government-led consultations moving forward.
Workshops will be held from 9:45 am to 3:00 pm at the following locations:
- Tuesday, August 20 – Grimshaw (Grimshaw Legion Hall)
- Thursday, August 22 - Hay Lakes (Hay Lakes Agriplex)
- Friday, August 23 – Coaldale (Readymade Community Hall)
These sessions are intended for elected officials and municipal staff of AAMDC’s 69 full member municipalities. Please RSVP your attendance, specifying location, to Cindy Carstairs at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15, 2013.
A draft backgrounder of the four broad topics that will be used to guide discussions during the workshops is attached. Advocacy staff are preparing resource materials that will support these discussions, which will be distributed as soon as possible.
