Plans are well underway for the 2021 AMO Conference, hosted by the City of London. For reasons all too image of Ciry of london Town Hallapparent, AMO 2021 will be virtual again next year, and appearing once again on screen near you.  

2020 has been a year that no one expected, and AMO met the challenge of being there for members with a ground-breaking virtual conference.  

With 1500 participants, three Ministers’ forums, 25 cabinet ministers, 480 delegation meetings, innovative new programming, on-line Board elections, and a new partnership with TVO, AMO delivered a conference experience that many of you said exceeded your expectations. Thank you for your support and for your feedback.  

We know there is no substitute for getting together in person, and we’re confident we will be together again in-person in Ottawa in August 2022.

We are building on the lessons from 2020 to deliver an even better AMO Conference experience in 2021.  Highlights such as the Women’s Leadership Forum and multiple Ministers’ Forums will be featured again, and more time will be allocated to networking.  We are busy putting together ideas for keynote and workshop speakers and will keep you informed as speakers are confirmed. As always, delegation meetings will provide a unique opportunity for your Council to bring local matters and priorities directly to the attention of Ministers. And we are keeping conference fees at the reduced 2020 rates.

Mark your calendar for AMO 2021, August 15-18. Registration opens December 18. Register early to take advantage of the early bird rate which ends on April 30, 2021.

And, of course, there is no need to book guestrooms as the AMO 2021 will be coming to you at a location of your choice.
