    On behalf of AMSA's executive team, please be advised that AMSA's spring convention scheduled for March 17-18 has now been cancelled.  This decision resulted from the growing concern related to COVID-19, many questions from AMSA members, with some municipalities indicating work-related travel restrictions being implemented. AMSA's executive also wishes to remain aligned with RMA's schedule, and have cancelled the AMSA spring convention following RMA's recent cancellation of their trade show and spring convention (see RMA notice in the email below). 

    Below are a few helpful links to keep up to date about COVID-19.

    Take care,

    Christine (on behalf of President Shaune Kovitch) 


    RMA's cancellation message : 

    In light of the growing concern regarding the spread of COVID-19, the RMA is cancelling the Spring 2020 Convention and Trade show. Although our program was full with great speakers, and exhibitors, we look forward to offering an exciting program in the future.

    All registered delegates and exhibitors will receive a full refund, and reminded that they are responsible for cancelling hotels. 

    Though the association will take a significant financial hit as a result of this decision, the health and safety of our members, staff, delegates and government partners are of the utmost importance.

    We encourage members to continue to visit the Government of Alberta’s COVID-19 website for up to date information and we will continue to communicate information pertinent to municipalities as this issue evolves.

    We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through the logistics of processing refunds and cancellations and will be in communication in the coming weeks regarding how resolutions brought forward will be handled.

    The Government of Alberta is reviewing regulations for the commercial transportation industry to reduce red tape and remove redundant regulations. As part of this engagement, Alberta-based carriers are invited to participate and provide their input to an industry-specific online survey on how Alberta regulates commercial carriers. The online survey will be available from February 26 to April 3, 2020. The results of this engagement will help the Government of Alberta identify opportunities for red tape reduction throughout 2020-2021.

    The survey consists of 33 questions on the following six key areas:
    1) Alberta's Hours of Service regulations;

    2) Adoption of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs);  

    3) Implementation of National Safety Code (NSC) Standards;

    4) Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) for commercial drivers;

    5) Vehicle weights and dimensions; and

    6) Alberta’s overall regulatory environment
