Photo: NAM is restructuring, president tells SAOs

The Nunavut Association of Municipalities is getting back on its feet. That's the message Oct. 16 from Paul Hauli, (at the back to the right, in the red ball cap) the mayor of Hall Beach and NAM's president, to senior administrative officers from around Nunavut attending the annual Nunavut Association of Municipal Administrators' meeting in Iqaluit. Hauli said NAM's funding from the hamlets and the Government of Nunavut has increased, so the association will be able to recruit and competitively pay a new executive director. That executive director, who should be in place by the end of the year, will be based in Igloolik, where office space and housing have been secured. For nearly three years, the NAM has struggled with little or no staff and constant turnover within its board. Now, Hauli said, NAM's new board won't dwell on the past.
