Happy New Year GFOA Alberta Members,
The first week of the new year always reminds me of how I never returned my Y2K generator, and it is still in my garage. It also makes me think of all the opportunities and challenges ahead of us. I hope you had some rest and relaxation over the holidays and you’re ready to tackle 2024!
We are delighted to announce new GOLD sponsor partnerships with F.H. Black & Company and UKG. Both organizations bring a wealth of expertise that makes them invaluable additions to the GFOA Alberta READY. SET. CONNECT Conference in Edmonton, June 2-5, 2024 at Fantasyland Hotel. And big shout-out to the newsletter “Sponsor of the Month”
Tantus Solutions [Returning Sponsor]

Professional Development Webinars:
We have noticed great participation in the webinars, some with over 100 attendees!
The next webinar will be hosted by Metrix Group “Implementing Municipal Performance
Measurement” on January 17, 2024. Register here for the third Webinar in the Metrix Series.
We are also offering a FREE Webinar “Business Continuity Management“ presented by Stephen Lacroix, Managing Director / Assistant Deputy Minister Alberta Emergency Management Agency -Government of Alberta on January 24, 2024.
Business Continuity Management is a process that puts a plan in place BEFORE a natural
disaster event and helps to build organizational resilience and the capability for an effective
response. In light of the fires and floods across Alberta this last year and the impacts to
municipalities, this is an important and timely topic. Register here for this FREE webinar.
If you haven’t renewed your annual registration or you are interested in the benefits of becoming a member, you can get more information here. I am happy to see that most members have
recognized that we changed our address. I will tell you that driving to downtown Morinville has been a lot easier than driving to the furthest reaches of Edmonton!
Watch our Instagram and LinkedIn pages for upcoming information about webinars, events and
other important opportunities. Thank you for being an essential part of GFOA Alberta.
We look forward to your continued involvement and the exciting opportunities in the coming year.
Rick Wojtkiw, Executive Director
