Ontario Fire Chiefs' Administrative 
Assistants Association

The goals of the Association are to enhance the position of the Administrative Assistant to the Fire Chief
through professional development, improved networking and self improvement.

About Us

The OFCAAA was founded in 1989 by Glenna Somerville, as the Ontario Fire Chiefs' Secretaries Association (OFCSA). Due to the many changes our position has come through over the years, in 2012, the Association decided that it was time to vote on a potential name change to better reflect the positions held by the members of the Association, and to move forward with the times. At our Annual General Meeting in September 2012, the membership voted and the Association became known as the Ontario Fire Chief's Administrative Assistants Association (OFCAAA).

Our membership is over 100 members and continues to grow.

Our Association conducts many surveys and asks questions of the membership throughout the year, dealing with various topics ranging from operating guidelines, job descriptions, structure related topics, full-time and volunteer department questions and policies, to name a few. Our Association is a great resource for departments ranging in size from small rural departments to large city departments.

The goals of the OFCAAA are to enhance the position of the Administrative Assistant to the Fire Chief by:

a) Professional Development

b) Improved Networking

c) Self-Improvement

We welcome you to our webpage, and encourage you to contact our executive members (listed on the contact page), should you have any questions about our Association or about becoming a member.

Thank you.
