Annual Conference POSTPONED

Status of LGAA's 2020 Conference

March 18, 2020

Due to the current health risks associated with the COVID-19 coronavirus and Alberta’s restrictions on mass gatherings, LGAA has rescheduled our 2020 Conference to October 21-23, 2020. The event will continue to be held at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre in Red Deer.

Our plan for the 2020 Conference has not changed. We still look forward to delivering an outstanding line up speakers and opportunities for members and delegates to network and discuss issues and opportunities impacting municipal leaders. As we shift our focus to plan for the conference in October, please review the following information as it relates to you.

I already registered for the conference. What are my options?

LGAA will carry forward all existing registrations to the new conference date of October 21-23, 2020. If you have a scheduling conflict and will not be able to attend the 2020 Conference, please email info@lgaa.ab.ca and request a refund.

Will LGAA charge a cancellation fee if I cancel?

Any cancellations prior to August 21, 2020 will receive a full refund. After that date, our standard cancellation fee of $50 + GST will apply to existing and new registrations and no refunds will be offered after October 1, 2020.

I have a hotel reservation booked. Will this be cancelled for me?

If you have reserved a room at the Cambridge Hotel (Red Deer) under LGAA’s room block, the hotel will automatically cancel the reservation on your behalf and if applicable, any charges will be refunded. If you would like to keep your reservation for the April dates, please contact the Cambridge Hotel at 403-346-2091 to confirm your reservation. If you have reserved a room at any other hotel, you will need to contact that hotel directly to cancel. 

What is the plan for the 2020 Annual General Meeting and election of Executive Board members?

The 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) was scheduled to be held on April 22nd as part of the 2020 Conference activities. Due to the risks of COVID-19 and potential challenges in achieving quorum, the 2020 AGM is now rescheduled to be held at the same time as the 2020 Conference in October. Details about timing, nominations, and resolutions for the 2020 AGM will be announced in a future issue of our E-Bulletin newsletter.
