City of El Dorado Finance Director Tammy Shaffer and Captain Shift Commander Troy Jellison graduated today from the Kansas Certified Public Manager program. The ceremony was held in the House Chambers at the Kansas State Capitol.
Here’s a description of the program provided on the State website:
*The Kansas Certified Public Manager® (CPM) program is a professional education opportunity for managers working in government agencies, nonprofits, and organizations that contract to provide public services and meet community needs. CPM is a nationally-accredited management program and certification in which participants develop and strengthen their management skills through our competency-based curriculum. The program can fill a training gap for staff with significant technical expertise who seek to further their knowledge of current management practices
The group of graduates were with one of three classes from Topeka, Kansas City, and Pittsburgh. Numerous State Representatives spoke at the graduation, including a spokesman from each class – Captain Jellison being the one from his class.
Congratulations to all the graduates and a sincere “Thank You” to numerous people, including the agency leaders of each graduate.
