Grundy County Trustee Tyler McCullough was recently chosen by The Tennessee Trustee’s Association to be a representative at the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers, and Finance Officers Annual Conference in Long Beach, California. McCullough was fully sponsored by the Tennessee Trustee’s Association with an all-expense paid travel, food, and conference fees to the event.
While at the conference, McCullough had opportunity to network with peers from all areas of the United States. Each session at the conference was designed to educate attendees on practical ethics, regulating banks in a global economy, best practices for collectors, and other topics related to collecting public funds. McCullough will be able to use these educational opportunities to further his education and obtain the designation of Finance Officer.
Through this Financial Officer certification, county treasurers are educated on the critical issues of maintaining financial government operations that reflect sound public policies, follow general state and national standards in treasury management for their respective counties, and provide needed public services for their citizens. This is a first for Grundy County, as there has never been a trustee in the county’s history that has been given the opportunity to obtain this certification from NACCTFO.
