Hinesville Mayor Pro Tem Charles Frasier received a certificate of distinction from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute at the Georgia Municipal Association’s 78th annual convention June 27 in Savannah.
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 distinction, a city official must complete a minimum of 204 units of credit, including 12 units of required courses. The training program consists of a series of more than 40 six-unit courses.
Frasier was one of 10 city officials to receive the certificate.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon said. “We commend Mayor Pro Tem Frasier for this accomplishment and for the dedication he’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”
Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, nonprofit organization that provides legislative advocacy, research, training, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its 500 member cities.
