Into the Future: Embrace Change


Thank you to everyone who attended the 2021 virtual AOWMA convention. We hope you had an amazing time.

The show would not be possible without the support of our exhibitors and sponsors.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our 2021 convention a success!

This year’s presentations are still available on the Socio platform, and will continue to be for one year. We are uploading more presentations, so check back frequently.

If you are interested in viewing the presentations, but you weren’t able to attend the convention and trade show, it isn’t too late!

Contact the office today and, for a small fee, we can set you up to access the recorded programs.

22nd Annual Convention and Trade Show

The 2020 AOWMA Convention and Trade Show was held in Red Deer, AB on February 6, 7, & 8, 2020.  Approximately 319 people flowed through the trade show over the course of the event, touring the booths and displays sponsored by our vendors.

The convention program was well attended by the delegates.  For those wishing to review the presentations, the convention proceedings are up on the AOWMA website.

The Annual General Meeting was held during breakfast on Friday, February 7, 2020.  After years of service to the Association Board of Directors, Daniel Morris stepped down as Vice-President.  The Association wishes to thank Daniel for his contributions to the Board.  Daniel will remain involved in other areas of service, such as training.

David Dallaire stepped in as Vice-President, vacating his position of Secretary/Treasurer, which was filled by Jessica Adirika.

This year’s AGM also saw the departure of Director Kirk Miller after several years of service.  Kirk will remain engaged in some Association Committees.  The Association would like to thank Kirk for his many contributions over the years.

Two new Board members joined the team this year.  The Association would like to welcome Jim Screpnek and Jim Wigmore to the Board of Directors.  Jim Screpnek is an Installer from Northern Alberta, while Jim Wigmore is an Installer from Central Alberta.

The 50/50 draw held to raise funds for the Alf Durnie Scholarship Fund was held once again during the banquet.  The draw raised $1,170.00.  Bob Boersema was the winner of the 50/50 draw, and was kind enough to return his share of $585.00 back to the fund.
