Caucus' and Caucus Lunches - Choose a caucus  when registering.

When you register for AMO,  the caucus you choose provides you access to the assigned lunch and your ability to vote in the 2024 AMO Board election.

AMO Caucus lunches are held on Monday August 19th. As 2024 is an AMO Board election year,  candidates for AMO Board caucus seats will have an opportunity to speak at their election caucuses. 

Elected officials are asked to choose one caucus for their lunch and voting. All other delegates including municipal staff will be assigned to the “non-voting lunch”

AMO cannot guarantee caucus lunch choices with registrations received after July 26, 2024, due to the likelihood of space constraints at that time. AMO will do its best to accommodate your request. 

Only elected officials and AMO members in good standing are eligible to vote in the AMO Board election.

What is a caucus lunch? 

As indicated above, caucuses are used to assign Monday lunches and for voting in AMO Board elections. While Council members can identify with more than one caucus, only one may be declared for conference registration and for 2024. Only elected officials and AMO members in good standing can register for a caucus lunch and vote in AMO Board elections.

Below is a description of each caucus
