The Maureen McCauley Bursary 

OMAA established a Bursary program in 2015. It was renamed after former OMAA Executive Director Maureen McCauley, the primary driver of its creation, by the Board of Directors in 2023. The Maureen McCauley Bursary offers $5,000 annually to support the education of future municipal government leaders and to:

  • Raise the profile regarding the benefits of municipal careers
  • Promote the profession of CAO
  • Provide an opportunity for OMAA Members to assist students interested in a local government future with the financing of their schooling
