Corporate officer receives certificate
A City of Vernon employee has reached the next level in education.
Sue Blakely, deputy corporate officer, has received a certificate in local government service delivery from the provincial Board of Examiners.
“Local government certificates recognize an individual’s academic training and work experience in local government,” states a release from the Ministry of Community Development.
“Candidates qualify based on their experience and mandatory education criteria determined by the Board of Examiners.”
On average, only 25 local government certificates are awarded annually to individuals in municipalities, regional districts and improvement districts around B.C.
The principal goal of the Board of Examiners is to improve the professional skills of local government employees throughout B.C.
