The Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA) has introduced a step-by-step webinar for its CAO Performance Evaluation Toolkit.
CAMA’s three-step CAO Performance Evaluation Toolkit has a lot of gears and options that might, at first glance, make it appear to be dauntingly complicated. It’s not! It’s really a simple tool. CAMA is pleased to provide you with a webinar (approximately 20 minutes in length) that is designed to show you just how easy it is to use and how it can be customized and scaled to your municipality.
CAMA’s Toolkit is designed to be a system that is flexible for the CAO, Mayor and Council. It’s a tool that lets you construct an evaluation process based on what works for you and your organization. It offers a variety of ways to choose goals, set competencies, conduct your self-assessment, and have ongoing performance evaluation conversations. For CAOs, the toolkit provides a process that uses strategies and templates that can be shared with the Mayor and Council to ensure goals, key results, core competencies, and performance measures are mutually understood. For Mayor and Council, the Toolkit underscores the value of CAO performance conversations, and offers a process for conducting the performance evaluations fairly.
The Marketing Campaign for the CAO Performance Evaluation Toolkit, including a series of presentations to the elected officials, has begun and will continue for the next year across the country. Your CMA Board member will let you know when it is being presented to your elected officials in your area. CAMA also looks forward to receiving your feedback over the next year as you begin to use the toolkit in your own community.
