2024 Municipal Symposium: Unlocking Excellence

The 2024 Municipal Symposium, happening at the Gander Quality Hotel and Suites, is a three-day immersion into the issues that matter to municipal leaders. Join your colleagues this May as we continue to unlock excellence in the municipal sector.

As municipal councillors and staff, you are connected to your communities –  you know what matters to your fellow community members, and you know what they want and need. As community leaders, you are respected; people look to you for guidance and leadership. For your knowledge, community contributions, and commitment to public service, you are valued.
