The “Making Life Happen” program was created in partnership with CAMA and other Provincial Associations, with a mandate of raising awareness of local government with a specific focus encouraging younger Canadians to consider a municipal career. The next time you or your staff are asked to speak to local community groups or businesses, explain local government and the role of the CAO, or talk to students about municipal government careers, “Making Life Happen” will give you the building blocks for a memorable presentation. Tailor a message from your own municipality using the elements and main messages we have created, including a powerpoint presentation with speaking notes and handouts. We are also pleased to have a bilingual website for this campaign: http://www.makinglifehappen.ca. Under the Resource Section/Recruiting the Next Generation of the CAMA Website you will find all of the promotional materials that are print ready and are provided to you in separate English and French documents along with instructions. We hope that you and your staff will use these resources to help us promote such a gratifying career to our next generation leaders.
