The Municipal District of Ranchland No. 66, located in Southwestern Alberta, is noted for its commitments to heritage ranching and to environmental stewardship. Council is preparing for changing economic opportunities in SW Alberta that are now underway and seeks a Chief Administrative Officer who is strongly team oriented, skilled at “reading between the lines” of governance and administration and has extensive project management experience.
