A safe place to get advice and have exchanges on "stuff that matters"

No one knows better than a fellow CAO how it feels to be in your shoes. OMAA has created a culture of confidential peer support so you can benefit from open communication with thoughtful and experienced likeminded individuals. "OMAA Member Requests" distribute Member generated questions to the Association membership base on subjects that make a difference in your world. Contribute a question or answer in the circle of your peers.

Recognition for your efforts

OMAA has its own Awards program to honour the contributions of its members based on length of service. Members are also eligible for the Robert Baldwin Award, Ontario's highest award for municipal public service.

Ongoing OMAA Communication

Regular e-Newsletters and messages are distributed to OMAA Members frequently over the course of a year keeping you on top of Association activities, services and opportunities for the Ontario CAO.

Attractive discounts

OMAA members receive registration fee discounts for our twice-yearly Workshops and other OMAA-sponsored professional development opportunities. You can also get a discount on the Public Sector Digest Webinars, as well as your annual CAMA membership fees.

Looking for a change in your career or a contract?

We help you advance your career and find ways to share your skills. OMAA is the go-to place for CAO job openings with postings on the OMAA Website, as well as distributions of CAO Job Ads.

Or if you're on the lookout for contract opportunities related to your CAO experience, you can post your CV on the OMAA website as one of the "Experienced CAOs".
