MNL Proud to Host Corner Brook’s Largest In-Person Event Since Beginning of Pandemic
Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased to announce its first in-person event since 2019. The 2021 MNL Conference and AGM, which will take place at the Corner Brook Civic Centre from November 3 to 6, will meet and exceed COVID-19 public health measures.
These measures include:
- Required proof of vaccination for all in-person attendees. Only those with a certified record of proof of vaccination for COVID-19 will be permitted to attend in person. As an additional level of protection, MNL will be conducting contactless temperature checks at the door each day.
- Mandatory masks at all indoor spaces throughout the event. To ensure the safest possible environment, participants are required to wear a mask at all times except while eating. People are asked to not eat while walking throughout the facility.
- Strict social distancing protocols. Room capacities are in full accordance with public health guidelines. MNL is asking delegates to be respectful of social distancing requirements by limiting conversations to one or two other people. Two delegates from a single town are considered a bubble. We are also asking that people refrain from standing together in groups between sessions, at nutrition breaks, in hallways, and on the trade show floor. Physical distancing must be maintained at all times.
- Restrictions on in-person attendance from areas under Alert Level 3 or higher. The AGM proceedings will be live-streamed, as will conference sessions occurring in the main meeting area.
In-person registration is limited to two delegates per municipality. Virtual registration is available for an entire council. Members can register here. The registration deadline has been extended to Wednesday, October 13, 2021.
“We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming atmosphere in full compliance with all public health guidelines, and more besides. We want to ensure that everyone in attendance feels safe. Additionally, we want to ensure that the people of the Corner Brook and surrounding area who are welcoming visitors from other parts of the province to this event know that we are taking every precaution possible to ensure a safe in-person event. I am excited to offer this new hybrid model of safe, in-person events, and to gather with fellow municipal leaders to share insights and knowledge.” – MNL President Amy Coady
