CITY OF BUDA FINANCE DIRECTOR COMPLETES NEW AND EMERGING FINANCE DIRECTOR PROGRAM
June Ellis, City of Buda Finance Director, recently completed the New and Emerging Finance Director program through the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). The year-long program focuses on training and developing current and future leaders in the public finance industry.
“The experience that I had from this program was exceptional,” said Ellis. “I was able to gather useful information in many areas of finance while attending and participating in the various class discussions.”
Ellis was one of only 20 individuals chosen to participate in the program. Individuals attended up to ten sessions to learn about various aspects of the industry and take deep dives into critical issues of their jobs and responsibilities as public finance officials.
“It was truly an honor to be selected as one of the 20 finance professionals invited to the program from around the State, and the only participant from Central Texas.”
“We believe it will be individuals like June that will help keep our region in the forefront of municipal leaders,” said Mike Eastland, Executive Director of NCTCOG.
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO CITY MANAGER COMPLETES TEXAS MUNICIPAL CLERKS CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Congratulations to Isabel Fernandez, Executive Assistant to Buda City Manager Kenneth Williams, for completing the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification program. “When I started working for the City of Buda, it was my first time working in municipal government,” said Fernandez. “I felt that I needed to learn more about the rules and regulations associated with City government.”
The certification required a year-and-a-half of multiple exams and assignments. While the certification gives Fernandez the basic requirements to be a City Secretary, her reason for pursuing the certification was more for training purposes.
“The typical classes I found for executive assistants were geared more towards the private sector. I realized that the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification program would give me the training I needed to support City Manager Kenneth Williams.”
Fernandez will receive formal recognition of the accomplishment at the next Annual Texas Municipal Clerks Election Law Seminar to be held in Frisco in January 2018.
