Nanaimo CAO named president of Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators

Jake Rudolph elected as CAMA president during association’s virtual AGM Tuesday

The City of Nanaimo’s chief administrative officer Jake Rudolph has been elected as the new president of the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators.

Rudolph, who was CAMA’s first vice-president, was announced as the association’s new president at the association’s virtual annual general meeting Tuesday, June 2, according to a press release from the City of Nanaimo.

“2020 is an unprecedented year and it’s an honour to be elected president of CAMA during these times,” Rudolph said in the press release. “The global pandemic has forced new and innovative thinking, flexibility in how municipalities operate and, more than ever, the need to learn from each other and grow through this together. For this term, that’s what CAMA will be all about – making sure that we all survive and excel through the next year ahead.”

Rudolph has been on the CAMA board since 2014 and served on various committees, including chairing the strategic plan review committee. Rudolph succeeds Jeff Renaud, CAO for Saint Stephen, N.B.

For Nanaimo, having the city’s top manager be elected as the top leader of CAMA is a vote of confidence in his leadership skill, experience, wisdom and integrity, the release noted.

“He courageously took on this role when the city really needed help, and it comes as no surprise that the members of CAMA would recognize his skills and award him their top role as well,” said Nanaimo Mayor Leonard Krog in the release. “For Nanaimo, having our CAO in such a respected role will connect us to the success stories of other communities, and ultimately improve the strength of our own city during this pandemic.”
