FONOM’s newest President has been named to the AMO Board of Directors.

Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities President Danny Whalen has been appointed to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario Board of Directors Northern Caucus.

Whalen as a member of the board will help to set policy for the association as well as serve as a municipal leader within the province.

AMO President Jamie McGarvey says if their board reflects diversity throughout the province it only helps to benefit them.

He says he is pleased to add Whalen to their team.
