NEW PROFESSIONALS WORKSHOP Tackling Complex Problems Through Innovative Solutions

November 10th, 2014
Ontario Rm, MacDonald Block,

Municipal Governments and the push for New Talent, Ideas and Innovations

This broad mix of municipal CAOs will discuss the changing world of municipal government in Ontario.  Topics that will be explored include how to effectively manage and deliver direct services to the public in an era of constrained fiscal resources.  Additionally, balancing this need for a sector that is transitioning its human resources to a newer generation of professionals.  The dynamics at play are critical to appreciate in order to ensure the sector continues to improve, innovate and pursue creative approaches to meeting the growing demands of local citizens in each of our communities.


Facilitator:  Rick Johal, Rick Johal, Director, Member and Sector Relations, Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO). After a time with the Ontario government, Mr. Johal worked for the City of Kitchener. He is currently responsible for sector engagement and advocating on behalf of Ontario’s municipal professional interests through his role at AMCTO.  Mr. Johal promises to keep with his reputation for challenging orientation and ideas, and bring the focus of this session to our speakers' records for pursing creative approaches when serving the public.
