REGINA - At the 117th annual convention of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, held in Regina, Town of Carlyle chief administration officer Natalie Miller was presented with certificates of achievement relating to the completion of two municipal leadership courses.
Miller has been employed with the Town of Carlyle since 2015 and will be celebrating her fifth anniversary as CAO on May 1.
Miller moved to Carlyle with her husband Regan in 2008 when Regan’s work in the agriculture field relocated them from St. Andrew’s, Man. He is currently employed with Farmers Business Network. Their son Hayden was five months old at the time of the move and they later had a daughter, Rory, in 2010.
Carlyle quickly became home for the Miller family as they got involved in the community. Both children participate in numerous sports teams, Cornerstone Family & Youth programs, and music lessons.
During her time in Carlyle, Miller has been involved in many volunteer boards, including the Carlyle Pool board, Cornerstone Family & Youth, Carlyle Skating Club board, Moose Mountain Soccer Club and Carlyle Fun Dayz.
“Through my volunteer work on the various boards I have had opportunities to become familiar with town facilities and build relationships with community members that have assisted me with my role as town CAO,” Miller shared.
Miller completed an office administration diploma program from Assiniboine Community College, where she was later employed in both Brandon and Winnipeg campuses until she moved to Carlyle. Shortly after being hired as the assistant administrator with the town, Miller enrolled in the local government authority program through the University of Regina and completed it before moving into the role of CAO in May 2017.
“Although the role of town administrator has its challenges, it is a role that I have enjoyed. I have had great mayors and councillors to work with and they have done an admirable job of investing in our community infrastructure to set us up for success.”
Added Miller, “We have a great team of staff that work together to run the town effectively and I look forward to our group expanding to include the new addition of the parks, recreation and culture department.”
