AMCTO Accreditation Testimonials:

"My recent completion of the CMO program and achievement of my CMO designation is by far my crowning education and professional achievement to date. I found the process and completion of the requirements provided me with a greater personal insight, understanding and appreciation for the professional attributes attained throughout my career."

- Sheridan L. Graham, CMO, Director, Corporate Projects & Services, County of Peterborough

“The AMP designation process provided myself an opportunity to reflect on my brief career and allowed me to identify my strengths; while providing insights into opportunities moving forward. Albeit challenging, it proves necessary in demonstrating competencies within municipal work. By obtaining the designation I feel that it is the essential foundation for supporting my future municipal endeavours, in what I hope will be a long, rewarding career.”

- Tyler C.J. Sager, AMP, Deputy Clerk, Municipality of Central Huron

“Achieving the AOMC designation was both a personal and professional milestone that simultaneously strengthens the role of the Clerk and my own career. Completing the application provided a great opportunity for self-reflection and it was relatively straightforward, with great support from AMCTO staff”

Lianne Sauter, Dipl. MA, AOMC, Director of Corporate Services/Clerk, Town of Bancroft
