The MMA Competency Framework
To unlock the full potential of our members, MMA is creating a comprehensive Competency Framework to define the essential skills, knowledge, and behaviors required for success in municipal administration. This session will introduce you to the framework and demonstrate how it can be used to identify strengths, address development needs, and provide members with a clear roadmap for career success. Members will also learn how using this framework, administrative leaders can empower their team to excel and grow, fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
The Governance Nexus: Administrative Leadership meets Politics
One of the greatest determinants of success for a municipality, is the quality of relationship between Council and their administration. This peer-panel session will try to tackle the question: In today’s political climate, how and where should municipal administrators lead? Our experienced panelists will share their insights on how administrators can navigate the political environment to support good governance, long-term thinking, vision setting, and making better decisions.
Hosted by Canadian Podcaster Chris Brown (Municipal Affairs, Cross Border Interviews, The Political Trenches), this audience-interactive peer-panel will be recorded for future broadcast.

Using AI Ethically to Increase Productivity and Quality in Your Municipal Office
Artificial Intelligence is changing the world of work, and that includes our municipal offices. Using a few of the exploding number of available and easy to use AI tools, you will learn how to improve productivity, accuracy, and effectiveness in your municipality. This session will explore the use-cases for practical AI tools, demonstrate their use, highlight the benefits they can deliver, and will identify and help you avoid any potential pitfalls or hazards.
Coaching and the Compassionate Culture
The contemporary municipal office has become a stress filled space. This session will explore different ways to understand ourselves and others. You will learn how stress impacts your effectiveness, communication, and conflict resolution skills. The session will focus on communicating effectively through the lens of observable behavior and the complex human experience; utilizing coaching competencies and neurological models to create a foundation for better engagement in the municipal workplace.
Building Your Leadership Brand
It is said that “Great leaders show up”, but often our ability to lead is determined by HOW we show up. Focused on enhancing tangible leadership qualities and presence, this engaging and practical session will equip participants with skills to lead at all levels of the municipal organization and build a strong leadership brand through a demonstrated presence.
