May 30th, 2012
MNL President Churence Rogers along with directors Neville Greeley, Frank Galgay and Allan Hawkins representing their respective municipalities of Corner Brook, St. John’s and Grand Falls Windsor will be in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan attending the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) annual conference and trade-show taking place this weekend from June 1st - 4th.
FCM’s 75th Annual Conference and Trade Show are designed for municipal political leaders and senior staff to engage in professional development through workshops focusing on leading-edge innovations and solutions for Canadian cities and towns.
President Rogers will be starting a one-year term as Chair of FCM’s Atlantic Regional Caucus in Saskatchewan and plans to strategically position the concerns of Atlantic Canadians on the national stage during his term. “Councils in the Atlantic Region are doing their best to operate their municipalities within the confines of ineffective policies in key areas such transportation, municipal fiscal framework and infrastructure funding. Working with my colleagues from Atlantic Canada I look forward to furthering our common objectives to improve on these policies and strengthen municipal government throughout Canada.”
The MNL Board looks forward to working collaboratively with all orders of government to identify municipal priorities and improving the lives of citizens in communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
Municipalities Newfoundland & Labrador was formed in 1951 as an umbrella organization mandated to represent municipal government interests, and as a vehicle for municipal leaders to share information and resources. MNL represents the 276 cities and towns in Newfoundland and Labrador that service 89 per cent of the population and their more than 2,000 leaders.
