Covington Mayor Kimberly Carter received the prestigious Certificate of Recognition from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute at the Georgia Municipal Association’s 77th Annual Convention in Savannah on June 28.
The Georgia Municipal Training Institute, a cooperative effort of GMA and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, provides a nationally recognized series of training opportunities for elected city officials. To receive a Certificate of Recognition, a city official must complete a minimum of 42 units of credit. The training program consists of a series of 24 six-unit courses.
"This is an outstanding achievement," said GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon. "We commend Mayor Carter for this accomplishment and for the dedication she’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official."
Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, research, training, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its 500 member cities.
