CMRAO Reduces Licence Fees
In late April, Aubrey LeBlanc, Chair of the CMRAO Board of Directors issued a statement announcing a 6.6% fee reduction for all classes of licences for 2019–2020.
Two main reasons for the fee reduction were given. First, the CMRAO wished to respond positively to industry partners. Second, it was within the capacity of the CMRAO to offer the fee reduction.
“The [CMRAO] Board made the decision to do this because it was prudent, fair, and reasonable,” said Mr. LeBlanc in the news release. “Current licensees who renew their licence will pay the reduced licensing fees, and so will all new applicants who apply for a licence after June 1, 2019.”
ACMO is pleased that CMRAO recognizes the financial pressure licensing has placed on many managers and appreciate this positive step.
