Mayor Gil Reeves will be one of more than 1,600 delegates at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s 2011 AMO Conference in London from August 21 to 24.
For more than 100 years, Ontario’s largest municipal conference has united municipal, provincial and federal officials to work collectively to overcome municipal challenges and plan for the future.
The Premier and the leaders of both opposition parties are featured speakers and as many as 25 federal and provincial ministers will participate in the conference.
This year’s program features close to 50 plenary sessions and workshops, and over 75 speakers, reflecting the broad scope of municipal responsibilities. Priority topics include economic development, energy policy, taxation, green industry, leadership, service delivery, infrastructure investment, waste diversion and municipal-aboriginal partnerships. Sessions will also cover pressing issues affecting municipalities, ranging from green energy and waste diversion to service delivery and infrastructure.
Mayor Reeves is particularly interested in the sessions related to Economic Development and Innovation, Rural Economic Development, Municipal-Aboriginal Partnerships and Green Energy innovations with respect to home-based Solar Power Generation.
