ATLANTA --Thomson City Council member Bernice Brown received the Certificate of Recognition from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute at the Georgia Municipal Association's Annual Mayors' Day Conference in Atlanta last month.
The Georgia Municipal Training Institute 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 more than 40 six-unit courses.
"This is an outstanding achievement," said GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon. "We commend council member Brown for this accomplishment and for the dedication she's shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official."
