Barton County Treasurer James Jordan recently attended the Annual Meeting of the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers (NACCTFO) on July 10 and 11 in Clark County, Nev. The meeting included continuing education courses in policy and management offered by the Graduate Program in Public Administration at Wayne State University.
“County collectors, treasurers and finance officers must constantly upgrade practices in their offices in order to best serve the needs of the public,” said Kyu-Nahm Jun, director of the Public Administration at Wayne State. “The certification program provides the opportunity to learn from nationally-recognized faculty, and to share information with colleagues from across the nation. This prepares them to serve the public more effectively.”
Session topics included talent retention, revenue recovery and trends in county government organization. Participants also engaged in a session where they shared best practices with their peers.
“By participating in the program, Jordan reflected his desire to keep his county on the cutting edge of public service,” Jun said.
