City of Conyers Chief Financial Officer Isabel Rogers and Finance Manager Yvonne Glumb received their Municipal Revenue Administration Certificates from the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) on Nov. 2.
GMA’s Municipal Revenue Administration Certificate program is designed to strengthen the understanding of city managers, city clerks, finance officers, customer service staff, elected officials and other city employees on different municipal revenue sources and applicable laws of the administration and collection process. In order to receive the certificate, recipients must complete all six program courses: Ad Valorem Tax 101, Delinquent Tax Collection, Governmental Fund Revenue Sources 101, Occupation Tax and Regulatory Fees, Alcohol Excise Tax and License Fees, and Customer Service and Best Practices.
“It’s no coincidence that the city of Conyers’ finance department has in excess of 25 consecutive years of finance awards from the Government Finance Officers Association. I attribute that to our employees who undergo rigorous training on the latest laws and best practices of government finance,” said City Manager Tony Lucas. “We commend the achievements of Ms. Rogers and Ms. Glumb in completing GMA’s Municipal Revenue Administration Certification course.”
Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, educational, employee benefit and consulting services to its 521 member cities.
