The Association des directeurs généraux des municipalités du Québec (ADGMQ) presents the web serie Profession DG. This project is aimed at the next generation and more broadly at anyone interested in the functioning of the municipal world. Its main objective is to demystify the profession of municipal director general, a function that is sometimes unknown to the general public. The three-episode web series meets with general managers from a variety of backgrounds, including the functions of the highest municipal manager, the professional skills required to practice the trade and the challenges that the next generation will eventually face.
