Alton chosen to OMSSA board

WELLINGTON COUNTY - Wellington County social services administrator, Eddie Alton, was successful in a bid to become a member of the Ontario Municipal Social Services Association (OMSSA) Board of Directors.

Established in 1950, OMSSA is a non-profit organization whose members are the Consolidated Municipal Service Managers (CMSMs) and District Social Services Administration Boards (DSSABs) across Ontario.

The members’ interests are represented to OMSSA by the senior human services staff of the CMSMs and DSSABs.

OMSSA works on the behalf of Ontario’s municipal service system managers. The consolidation of municipal service management begun in 1998 by the provincial government resulted in the creation of 47 CMSMs across Ontario. The CMSMs and DSSABs act as service system managers planning, managing and delivering human services including early learning and child care, employment and income supports, and housing and homelessness prevention programmes.

“I am pleased to work with my social services colleagues on the OMSSA Board,” said Alton. “OMSSA promotes policy and program delivery solutions to strengthen local service system management and human services integration. ”

Alton has worked in municipal government for over 30 years and has been the social services administrator for Wellington County since 2009.
