The Sustainable Communities Conference brings representatives from municipalities across Canada together.
Olds was represented at last week's 2012 FCM Sustainable Communities Conference by Mayor Judy Dahl and CAO Norm McInnis.
The conference, which was held in Ottawa by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, has grown to include hundreds of representatives from communities across the country.
Dahl says they were able to discuss how municipalities can become more socially, economically and ecologically vibrant.
Red Deer is the likely site for next year's conference and Dahl hopes to have more councilors and members of the community attending.
