NOMA 2023 Conference & AGM

NOMA is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our 2023 Conference & AGM at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre on April 26th to April 28th!

The Conference theme for 2023 is ‘New Beginnings from Lessons Learned.’ We are excited to welcome new Mayor's and Councillors as they begin their 4 year term as municipal leaders in Northwestern Ontario. Plans are well on their way for this event and we look forward to hosting an exciting and informative conference this year.

You will get to participate in an interactive three day agenda designed to provide new and returning elected officials opportunities to learn about best practices, how to face future challenges, and learn from the lessons of past leaders to guide you to create a better future for your municipalities.

You will have opportunities to connect with our sponsors and exhibitors, watch and participate in all scheduled presentations, and participate in our Annual General Meeting.


A draft agenda will be made available early 2023. If you are interested in a spot on our agenda please fill our the Call for Speaker Form and return it to the Executive Director at by February 1st.
