During the FONOM Conference Hosted by the City of North Bay in May, FONOM will be hosting a Northern Leaders Debate, with all four Leaders confirmed. The FONOM Board would like to solicit our members for debate questions they would like to have asked during the debate. We would ask that the question be submitted by Friday, April 29. The FONOM Executive Committee will review the questions for consideration. Please ensure the question is of regional importance.

Other planned Agenda Items for the 2022 FONOM Conference are;

Cultural Mindfulness, NWMO Safety Transportation plan, ONTC Shop Tour, Reception at Gateway Casino, MPAC Update, Insurance pricing explained, Banquet, AGM, a path forward for Mental Health, Homelessness, and Addiction, and an update from FedNor.

FONOM is going to start to host quarterly Learning Mornings for our Members. The Morning will include five 30-minute presentations, and we would hope the presenter will take questions from attendees inside that time frame. Our next morning will be on Wednesday, November 10th (Zoom link below), starting at 8:30, and we should be done just before 12noon. We plan to do the third morning on Thursday, February 17th, 2022. Previous Learning Morning Sessions are available on FONOM’s YouTube Channel
