“I look forward to my role as President of OMAA and in particular the opportunity to continue to grow our membership and raise awareness of the role of the municipal CAO in Ontario communities,” said Michael Duben. “The Association has great potential to further the profession itself and the professional network for municipal executives.”
In the short time Mr. Duben has been with the District of Muskoka, he has led completion of numerous service and operational review recommendations, creation of a Continuous Improvement Unit focused on corporate projects and strategic initiatives, and the transition of paramedic services from a private sector contractor to the District. He has dedicated most of his adult life to the service of others and community, through his employment in the public, private, and regulatory sectors, and in his local and global volunteer work
“Michael’s leadership and passion for progressive municipal management will well serve OMAA’s goals and priorities,” said John Klinck, Chair of the District Municipality of Muskoka. “This is also a great opportunity to share Muskoka’s perspective at a provincial level.”
