Municipalities face a wide array of financial, political, social, cultural, and environmental pressures. In response, AUMA has initiated the Future of Municipal Government (FOMG) project to explore and assess options for government structures that will enable municipalities to build thriving communities into the future.
From advocating on evolving legislation to well-managed boards, we take a structured and strategic approach to change.

With the support of Municipal Affairs, AUMA and the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) collaborate to provide change management resources to support municipalities in implementing new requirements under the Municipal Government Act (MGA).
