Growing together: Strong Communities for a Strong Province 

Join UMNB for our Inaugural 1.5-Day event at the Crowne Plaza Fredericton on March 20-21, 2024! The 2024 Advocacy Days is a unique gathering of UMNB’s membership to engage directly with MLAs, ministers and party leaders to work collaboratively towards advancing our key priorities. Our theme is Growing together: strong communities for a strong province reflecting our commitment to be good partners in building a successful province. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of meaningful discussions and contribute to shaping the future of local governance as we head into the 2024 election.
