Larry Baker, Walthourville mayor pro-tem, received certificates of recognition and achievement from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute on Jan. 25, during the Georgia Municipal Association’s Annual Mayors’ Day Conference in Atlanta.
A city official must complete a minimum of 42 credits to earn the recognition certificate and 72 credits for the achievement certificate.
Walthourville councilmember James Hendry received the certificate of excellence during the GMA conference for completing a minimum of 120 credits.
The training program is made up of 24 six-unit courses.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” said GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon. “We commend [Baker and Hendry] for this accomplishment and for the dedication [they have] shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”
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.
Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, nonprofit organization.
