Urban Municipal Administrators Association of Saskatchewan (UMAAS)

The Urban Municipal Administrators Association of Saskatchewan (UMAAS) began in the mid-1950’s with the unanimous support of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA). The Association along with the Provincial Government establishes standards and examinations to increase members’ proficiency, knowledge and skill with respect to the performance of their professional duties.

They also have established an educational program for persons who apply for membership in the Association.

The UMAAS of today is faced with a challenging and increasingly complex field. The Association is confident that these challenges will be met as effectively today as they have in the past.

 Free 10 Minute Trainers can help improve your citizen service

The Ministry of Government Relations reminds municipalities to take advantage of 10 Minute Trainers – a free online training tool to help expand the knowledge of councillors and administrators.

The 10 Minute Trainers include short videos and questions designed to engage municipalities in discussions about local issues. The informative training, which can be facilitated by administration, can be easily completed as a group before or after a council meeting to be efficient with busy schedules.  

The first 10 Minute Trainers module online is about council procedures bylaws. It focuses on everything from special meetings and the minimum numbers of council members required for a vote to pass, to dealing with delegations and committees.

Ten Minute Trainers can be found at:
