AMA Executive Director

As AMA Executive Director, Janice Wentzell plays the role of municipal advocate. All municipal partners in the MWV will look to the AMA to provide a fair and reasonable representation of their collective and individual needs. Metaphorically, this is the role of "barometer", the most accurate and reliable "reading" of the overall municipal climate vis a vis the MWV's goals, policies and actions. The AMA Executive Director's secondary role will be as administrative leader of the project. Other responsibilities include:

  • Liaise with municipal partners, AMA Executive, DMA and other stakeholders
  • Provide the MWV Board with "readings" of the municipal partners needs, desires, problems
  • Advise the Board in matters of administrative process
  • Provide basic administrative support
  • Communicate policies to stakeholders
