HEISER REPRESENTS STATE AT CONVENTION 7-13-15 LMS
County Treasurer Mary Ann Heiser told the Lemhi County Commissioners Monday, July 13, that she had the honor of being elected by the State Association of Treasurers to be the stateís representative at the July 8th and 9th National Association of County Collectors and Tax Financial Officers Convention (NACCTFO) in North Carolina. While there she completed professional certification course work in public policy administration.
The conference included education courses in policy and management, offered by the Public Policy Administration program at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) as part of their Chancellorís Certificate program and in partnership with NACCTFO.
Dr. Deborah Balser, Associate Professor and Director of the Public Policy Administration program at UMSL said, ďOur Chancellorís certificate program allows NACCTFO members to learn about cutting-edge practices, and share their experiences. Members come away from these sessions with valuable ideas to implement in their own office.Ē
The coursework included short-term investing, diversity in the workplace, evaluating employees, and courthouse security. Balser said that Heiserís participation in these sessions demonstrates her commitment to carefully manage scarce county resources.
Heiser said it was a very intense training and the most rewarding was a 12 hour class focused on Human Resources and family medical. She brought back ideas which she would like to see considered for county in-house policies along with recommended changes in policy verbiage. Heiser passed along information to the commissioners about some software that can be added to office computers to enhance security.
Another thing Heiser learned is that North Carolina is the second largest banking capitol of the United States and also has its own Federal Reserve.
Getting back to at-home business, she said approximately six to seven percent of the property taxes from 2014 remain unpaid, which is a bit above the norm.
