in the municipal field in Ontario, and the leading professional development
organization for administrative staff in municipal government.
In her inaugural address, Betteanne Cadman, an avid gardener, used the
analogy of gardening as a metaphor for the positive change and growth that she
envisions for the Association. "Transformation implies growth and movement
from a place where you are to a place that promises to be better," said
Cadman. "Transformation doesn't leave the past behind, but builds on something
that was, and makes it better, taking it to a higher place."
The new President noted with pride that the Association has just
undertaken the implementation of its second Five Year Strategic Plan and set
as a goal for her presidency, "to continue to be advocates and leaders in this
ever changing environment, and to strive to stay at the forefront of our
growing federal/municipal relationship." Cadman challenged the Association's
members to take responsibility for their own personal growth and pledged that
AMCTO will continue to provide the tools to assist them on their journey.
"Betteanne spends many long days tending to the business of the Township,
bringing her expertise gained through previous experience and also through her
involvement with the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers
of Ontario. The staff and council rely on her knowledge to make informed
decisions," praised Norwich Township Mayor, Donald Doan. "We are very proud of
Betteanne in her new role as President of the AMCTO. With her knowledge of
municipal government and her attention to detail, the Association is in good
hands with Betteanne at the helm. Congratulations."

30 years in a range of key administrative positions, culminating with her
