AMSA's Executive Team recently made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall 2020 AMSA Convention and to postpone the Annual General Meeting until the new year, with hopes of being able to host in person convention and AGM in March 2021.
AMSA intends to comply with all provincial directives for gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
At this time AMSA's Executive Team didn't feel the investment to host a virtual convention would provide the same level of engagement and value for AMSA members, and will be working on a plan for continued professional development and networking opportunities moving into the New Year.
AMSA's Executive will develop a plan this fall to continue to engage with AMSA's membership and will be exploring with Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) the opportunity to have enhanced calendar of AMSA zone meetings. Smaller scale regional gatherings, whether in person or virtual, may provide the interim solution until we can all meet again collectively.
AMSA will continue to keep its members posted on leadership and training opportunities and what AMSA has in store into the New Year. Please do stay tuned.
