The 2023 Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador AGM will take place Saturday, Oct. 28 at the St. John’s Convention Centre. To facilitate voting on resolutions and for Board of Directors nominees, the meeting will be called to order Oct. 25.

Board of Directors elections

The following board positions will be voted on at the 2023 AGM:

  • President
  • Vice-President
  • Small Towns Director
  • Urban Municipalities Director

Nominations are open to current municipal council members. The board nomination period opens on Aug. 14, 2023 and closes on Sept. 26.

The nomination form and more information on the board of directors roles and responsibilities is available here.


MNL encourages member municipalities to submit resolutions to be voted on by the membership at the 2023 AGM. Resolutions are accepted from Aug. 16 to Sept. 15.

The MNL Advocacy Committee is responsible for reviewing each resolution, determining whether the issue is municipal in nature, and recommending how MNL can best lobby for the issues identified or otherwise contribute to their resolution. MNL has instituted a Resolutions Classification system that allows each resolution to be assessed and given one of three priority levels. These levels help the Advocacy Committee and Board determine which resolutions are most important and require more attention. All adopted resolutions are also assigned to at least one of MNL’s Standing or Ad Hoc Committees to follow-up and monitor as appropriate through the year.

The revised bylaws will be sent to the MNL membership via email on Aug. 25.
