To make the registration process more efficient and to prepare for your attendance at the 2020 Convention, delegates are encouraged to pre-register. The deadline for pre-registration is no later than 2:00 p.m. on April 17, 2020. After 2:00 p.m. on April 17, delegates must register at the Convention Registration Desk.

Program Information

As the Convention Program is designed for municipal officials and municipal personnel, we do not recommend that spouses/guests/children attend these sessions. This Program is designed to be a professional environment of learning and education. If the registrant’s spouse/guest/child is interested in an activity, please visit the convention registration desk or the visitor’s bureau for suggestions of nearby attractions.

Spouse/Guest/Child Registration

As the Convention Program is designed for municipal officials and municipal personnel, we do not recommend that spouses/guests/children attend these sessions. This Program is designed to be a professional environment of learning and education. If the registrant’s spouse/guest/child is interested in an activity, please visit the convention registration desk or the visitor’s bureau for suggestions of nearby attractions.

Spouse/guest registration cannot be paid by the municipality; therefore, registration must be paid by the official at the time of registration. The spouse/guest registration fee is restricted to persons who are not municipal or public officials, are not affiliated with any exhibitor, and would have no professional reason to attend the convention. Spouse/Guest registration is available ONLY for a person who accompanies a full convention registrant, and only to those who do not have any other reason to attend the ALM Convention. Spouse/Guest registration does not include session attendance. The spouse/guest registration permits an individual to accompany a full convention registrant to events specifically listed in the official convention program as open to a Spouse/Guest. Eligibility of guests is subject to verification.

For children ages 6 and over, as well as other guests, the full registration fee must be paid. There is no extra charge for children under 6; however, children must be registered and receive a name badge.

**To register additional guest(s), there is an additional non-refundable fee of $150 per guest. Spouses/Guests are not eligible to attend the convention training sessions or obtain credit hours in the Certified Municipal Official Program.

Convention Refund/Cancellation Policy

In order to receive a partial refund of your registration fee, your cancellation request must be received in writing by April 17, 2020. A $60 administrative fee will be charged for all cancellations regardless of the reason for cancellation, including medical emergencies. No refunds will be given after this date. Registration fees for spouses/ guest are nonrefundable. ALM cannot make exceptions to this policy.

Distinguished Service Awards

The Alabama League of Municipalities presents municipal service awards during its annual convention to municipal officials and staff recognizing 20, 30, 40 and 50 years (in 10 year increments) of service earned during the previous calendar year. Awards are only presented to individuals who notify the League of a service milestone by March 13, 2020. Awards will not be given to those who fail to notify the League by the deadline.

However, if a person reaches 20, 30, 40 or 50 years of service but fails to notify the League, he or she may receive an award during the following convention, provided the League is notified by the deadline for that convention. Service awards will not be given beyond the second year for which they were earned
