Moreno earns Chancellor’s Certificate in Public Administration:
Finance Master NACCTFO professional certification program for County treasurers, tax collectors, and finance officers
Angela Moreno, Treasurer of Yuma County, recently attended the Annual Meeting of the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers (NACCTFO) in Clark County, NV on July 10th and 11th, 2019. The meeting includes continuing education courses in policy and management offered by the Graduate Program in Public Administration at Wayne State University, previously offered through University of Missouri, St. Louis.
“As a County Treasurer I have found that it is exceptionally important to continue my education,” explains Moreno. “Practices are always changing and new ways of serving the public are being developed. The knowledge benefits Yuma County, but also serves me well working within my professional committees.”
On top of serving Yuma County as the Treasurer, Moreno is a State Director of NACCTFO and serves on the Education Committee. She also serves on the National Association of Counties (NACo) Environment, Energy & Land Use (EELU) Steering Committee. She is the Past President of the Arizona County Treasurer’s Association.
“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 an information sharing session where they shared best practices with their peers.“By participating in the program, Moreno reflected her desire to keep her county on the cutting edge of public service,” Jun said.
