LGAA's 2020 Conference

May 25, 2020

In mid-March, we announced that our 2020 Conference was rescheduled to October 21-23, 2020 due to impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we hope to be able to host the conference this year, it is still too early to determine. Over the coming months, we will be monitoring Alberta’s health orders with regards to mass gatherings and assessing our ability to host the event in a safe manner. As we wait to see what options are available, please review the following information as it relates to you.

If the conference can proceed, what has changed about the program?
Nothing. We still plan to host it at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre in Red Deer, and we are fortunate to have been able to maintain the same great line up of speakers for our October schedule. Download our current program  for a complete listing of speakers and schedule.

How do I register for the conference?
We will open registration once we have confirmation that we can host the conference.

I registered prior to the rescheduling of the conference. What are my options?
As previously communicated, LGAA is carrying forward all existing registrations to the new conference date of October 21-23, 2020. If your plans have changed and you would like to request a refund, please email us at info@lgaa.ab.ca

Will LGAA charge a fee if I cancel?
Any cancellations prior to August 21, 2020 will receive a full refund. After that date, our standard cancellation fee of $50 + GST will apply to existing and new registrations and no refunds will be offered after October 1, 2020. No cancellation fees will apply if the conference is cancelled.

I want to book a hotel room for the conference.
We will share room booking details once we have confirmation that we can host the conference.

What is the plan for the 2020 Annual General Meeting and election of Board members?
The 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) was scheduled to be held on April 22nd as part of the 2020 Conference activities. Due to the risks of COVID-19 and potential challenges in achieving quorum, the 2020 AGM is now rescheduled to correspond with the rescheduled conference. The AGM is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on October 21, 2020 at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre in Red Deer. Details about Board election nominations and resolutions for the 2020 AGM will be announced in a future issue of our E-Bulletin newsletter.
