The AAMDC is pleased to provide the membership with an update on advocacy efforts in the Fall 2017 Advocacy Report Card.

Section 1 of the Advocacy Report Card includes the Government of Alberta responses to resolutions endorsed at the spring 2017 convention and Section 2 provides an update on all other active resolutions. The AAMDC would like to emphasize that Section 1 only reflects the AAMDC’s reaction to the initial response received from the Government of Alberta and that further advocacy efforts on all resolutions are in progress.

The AAMDC resolutions database has been updated to reflect the status changes and developments included in the Fall 2017 Advocacy Report Card.

As an advocacy organization, it is important to note that when a resolution has been assigned a status of “Accepted”, it is still reviewed for progress and updates during the bi-yearly Advocacy Report Card process. Following each review, the status may change depending on any developments that have occurred. Further, after resolutions expire, regardless of their status, the AAMDC continues to reference them when related issues arise. 

Resolutions form an integral part of the AAMDC’s advocacy efforts and the AAMDC would like to acknowledge the work that the membership undertakes in drafting and debating resolutions that reflect issues of importance to rural municipalities. Endorsed resolutions provide direction for the Association and enable focused advocacy efforts.
