Matthew Kelley named 2019 OMAA Bursary Award recipient

It is the desire of the Ontario Municipal Administrators’ Association (OMAA) Board of Directors to promote good governance at the municipal government level. One such supporting element is to ensure skilled and experienced leadership exists among municipal bureaucrats. In turn, the sector requires a continued assimilation of young people to bring energy and new views that contribute to sound management, and indeed good governance.

In 2015, OMAA has established a 10-year bursary program offering $5,000 annually to reflect its interest in contributing to the education of future municipal government leaders. The intention of the “OMAA Bursary” is to:

  • Raise the profile regarding the benefits of municipal careers
  • Promote the profession of CAO
  • Provide an opportunity for OMAA Members to assist students interested in a local government future with the financing of their schooling

At the 2019 OMAA Fall Workshop, Matthew Kelley was named the latest recipient.
