It is hard to believe, but our Fall 2017 Convention will begin next week in the afternoon of Tuesday, November 14 and conclude Friday, November 17! As some of you can attest, Convention is one of the most exciting events and a unique opportunity, where we can all talk about issues and opportunities that face rural municipalities across the province, and get to know one another.

For those of you whom this will be your first Convention, welcome! You will soon realize the value of having the opportunity to network with your rural counterparts and learn about all things rural Alberta!
