Caucus Lunches

Choose a caucus lunch when registering.

AMO Caucus lunches are held on Monday August 21st. These lunches provide an opportunity to meet colleagues, hear from important sponsors and enjoy a lunch. If you do not choose a caucus lunch, you will be guaranteed lunch for Monday. Elected officials are asked to choose one caucus for their lunch. All other delegates including municipal staff will be assigned to the “non-voting lunch”
 AMO will not be able to guarantee caucus lunch choices with registrations received after July 7, 2023, due to the likelihood of space constraints at that time. AMO will do its best to accommodate your request. 

What is a caucus lunch? 

Caucuses are used to assign delegates to Monday lunches and for voting in AMO Board elections held every two years (**AMO 2023 is not a Board election year**). While Council members can identify with more than one caucus, only one may be declared for conference registration and for 2023, choosing a lunch. In non-election years, such as 2023, municipally elected officials are free to join a caucus lunch they are not affiliated with.
