Typhanie Ansley, who works with the Hall County Board of Commissioners, earned Local Finance Officer Certification in the second quarter of 2015 through the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government’s financial management training program.
Ansley was recognized with Level I certification for pursuing professional development in governmental finance, accounting and budgeting.
Level I certification requires finance officers to participate in 108 hours of instruction about the intricacies of government budgeting, purchasing, accounting and other public finance topics. Thirty-two local officials from around the state recently earned their Level I or Level II certifications.
“Earning certification shows that these finance officials are committed to continually improving their skills and make them better equipped to help their local government operate more effectively,” said Institute Director Laura Meadows.
