Credit Unions of Alberta
Government Relations Forum + MLA Reception

An learning and networking event brought to you by Alberta Central.

The Government Relations Forum and MLA Reception is back in person – join us November 22, 2022 in Edmonton!

Join credit union leaders from across the province as they gather to learn, connect and be inspired at the Government Relations Forum and MLA Reception at the Matrix Hotel in Edmonton (10640 100 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB). This event includes a full day of sessions for credit union leaders followed by an evening networking reception with MLAs.

The Forum will feature experts speaking to:

  • the expected priorities of the provincial and federal governments as 2022 draws to a close;
  • government relations best practices, priorities and tactics for credit union leaders;
  • trends in the financial services industry;
  • and much more!

After the day of learning, attend the MLA Reception to mix and mingle with local government representatives and help spread the word about the credit union difference.
