ATLANTA — Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler received a certificate of achievement from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute on Jan. 27 during the Georgia Municipal Association’s annual Mayors’ Day conference in Atlanta.
The Georgia Municipal Training Institute, a cooperative effort of GMA and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, provides a series of training opportunities for elected city officials.
To receive a certificate, a city official must complete a minimum of 72 units of credit, including six required courses. The training program consists of a series of more than 40 six-unit courses.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” GMA Executive Director Lamar Norton said. “We commend Mayor Fowler 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.
