BANFF LODGING COMPANY

Banff Lodging Company is an employee owned and operated Company in the heart of Banff. They have eleven properties located in the Banff National Park ranging from hotels to condos and suites, at separate price points. They do not offer room blocks, however we have negotiated a 20% discount for all CAMA delegates at their properties subject to availability for the period of June 2-7, 2024. Rates fluctuate based on dynamic pricing and the discount will be applied to the rate at the time of booking.

Book Now! The only way to book a hotel at the Banff Lodging Company is to click here for their website and use the promo code CAMA to get 20% off the posted rates. All these hotels are located between 2.4 km and 5.5 km from the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and are between $350.00 to $640.00 per night, and as noted are in a ROAM Transit service area (except for the Rocky Mountain Resort which is outside the Town boundary).

Conference Registration for Members in Transition

Going in to “transition” is a very difficult situation that all too many members face at some point in their local government careers. Any job change is difficult, but when it’s forced on someone for reasons that often have nothing to do with their job performance it can be traumatic.

If you are a “Member in Transition” and have been fired or forced to resign your position in local government and are now “in transition”, CAMA will provide a complimentary registration for you. Hotel and travel expenses are at your cost. Register under the “Members In Transition” category on-line, but CAMA’s membership department must have been notified of your status for you to use this option.
