Regional Meetings

October 11 - 20, 2022

Open to mayors, councillors, and administration from SUMA member municipalities, regional meetings are an opportunity to discuss common issues with others from your region, take in an education session, and learn what SUMA is doing. The 2022 regional meetings will also mark the start of consultations on SUMA's governance review. Two regional meetings - East Central and Northeast - will include elections too.

  

TWO WAYS TO ATTEND

In-Person

Gather in a hometown in your region and connect with fellow municipal leaders and SUMA, engage in discussions, take part in an education session, provide feedback, and enjoy a catered lunch.

 

 

 

Online

Unable to attend in-person? There is an online option so you can connect, learn, and share your feedback wherever you are. 

 

SHAPE THE FUTURE OF SUMA - BE PART OF THE CONSULTATION

As part of SUMA's 2021-25 Strategic Plan, the SUMA Board of Directors commissioned a governance review of the organization. At our 2022 regional meetings, we will be hosting our first set of consultations on the review. We will introduce what we heard and outline what a caucus model for SUMA could look like, and then we want to hear your thoughts.

All feedback gathered at regional meetings will be taken back to the SUMA Board of Directors, who will review the feedback and adjust the proposed governance model based on what we heard. We will then share it with you again, as part of an extensive consultation process. Be sure to watch for other consultation opportunities. Our intent is to have any proposed changes come to the membership for review and approval at our Convention in 2024.
