Member Spotlight

Caroline has worked in municipal government for 21 years and is currently the Property Tax Officer for Kneehill County. For 9 years, Caroline has built her position to include all property tax related duties, manages the utility billing system, completes monthly bank reconciliations, quarterly GST filing and all things related to the insurance portfolio.

Caroline lives in Hanna with her husband and in her spare time loves to read and create quilts for family and friends. She has four grandchildren ages 5-14 and has enjoyed having her parents living across town for the first time in all her married years. Weekly coffee with Mom & Dad is a brand new experience and a wonderful addition to her daily life. Caroline and her husband, Terry, love to camp during the summer with family and friends and travel to different places when time and funds allow.

"I joined the Association as I found there was little support for our positions. There are so many aspects of our positions that require careful steps to take in order to ensure that the legislation is followed accurately. I hope that our Association is able to help those people in tax positions, both new and old, to find supports when needed. I also hope that we can build an educational program in order to offer professional designation to ensure that we are recognized for the responsibility that we have."

Caroline is the Secretary of the AMTPA Board of Directors and looks after the website and newsletters (weird talking about myself!).

Membership Directory

To enhance our Members Directory we are looking for your input on what you would like to search for when looking for another member to reach out too.  This information would be a field that members would update in their Profile.

For example, if your municipality passes Supplementary levies, Business Improvement Levies, Subclass Tax Class 1, or Subclass Tax Class 2 bylaws we can list those features for you in your profile and you would select what all applies. Using that information should allow us to custom build the Membership Directory so you can search on those items and it’ll pull up the members who checked that off. This would provide a list for members to email directly, other members for support or inquiries.

Please email for any subjects you’d like to have added to searchable fields in the Membership Profiles to help find commonalities amongst each other.
