The NMC Secretariat

The NMC Secretariat (NMCS) is comprised of the Executive Director, Manager of Finance and Human Resources, Financial Coordinator, Communications Advisor and six Regional Managers (one for each Region, including the NCR). 

The Secretariat leads NMC efforts to influence policy by reflecting the voice of managers to Public Service decision-makers.  They are a facilitator and information broker, bringing people together and helping them share best practices, resources and contacts.  

The NMCS is the main point of contact for central initiatives, agencies and communities that impact Managers.  They work together with the NMC Advisory Boards to promote a strong, united management community.  They also coordinate the Strategic Planning process and create the NMC Strategic Plan.

The Regional Managers collaborate, liaise and provide support and advice to Steering Committee Chairs/Co-Chairs and members in their respective Regions.  They represent NMC at events, including Regional Federal Council meetings and other horizontal senior level communities, advocating on issues of importance to managers
