In March, seven local officials graduated from the SC Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute, a three-year program that provides municipal clerks and treasurers with the skills critical to their profession.
The spring graduates are Krista DuBois, accountant for the Town of Kiawah Island; Beverly Julian, clerk for the Town of Eutawville; Christine Keefer, finance/HR assistant for the Town of Blythewood; Felicia Lester, clerk/treasurer for the Town of Pinewood; Robin Martin, clerk/treasurer for the Town of Elloree; Brenda Nettles, town clerk for the Town of Society Hill; and Glenda Tanner, utility billing clerk for the Town of Hemingway.
To receive their certificates, the graduates completed more than 120 class hours on topics such as basic budgeting, overview of government, business license administration and customer service. At the March session, attendees received training on basic accounting, election administration, human resources management and technology in the workplace.
The Municipal Association is offering the first in a series of online training courses designed to provide municipal clerks with the knowledge necessary to perform their duties.
