Ontario East Municipal Conference returns to Cornwall
Over 500 municipal officials will be back in Cornwall this fall for the Ontario East Municipal Conference (OEMC).
“We had a very good experience in Cornwall last year and there was a clear consensus to return,” says Dylan Boles, Executive Director with the Ontario East Economic Development Commission. “OEMC 2019 will once again offer a very compelling conference program.”
OEMC is an annual conference that brings economic developers and municipal leaders from across Eastern Ontario together for three days to share best practices and learn from other experts on topics of interest for economic development in their communities. In addition to a busy 3-day schedule of seminars and workshops, OEMC also boasts a trade show and a robust social program that includes Taste of the Town – an opportunity for delegates to explore local restaurants.
“Cornwall looks forward to welcoming community leaders from across Eastern Ontario, from municipalities both large and small,” says Bernadette Clement, Mayor of Cornwall. “Cornwall was a founding member of Ontario East and we remain committed to working with our neighbours for the betterment of the entire region.”
The conference will held Wednesday September 11 to Friday September 13, 2019 at the NAV CENTRE, which is large enough to accommodate multiple concurrent sessions and allow delegates, speakers and exhibitors to stay on site. Registration is open now at OEMC.ca.
