CAMA’s Long Service Recognition Awards program, which was implemented in January 2011, is based on the number of years of full-time, paid employment in a local government in a management capacity, either as a Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) or reporting directly to a CAO.  

The Long Service Recognition Awards are granted after ten years of service and are then given in five year increments.  The Distinguished Member Award recognizes any CAMA member who has been in the position of a Chief Administrative Officer or City Manager position for 25-years or more, and who has been a CAMA member for at least 10 years.
