Treasurer’s Office Officials Attend Wayne State Certification Program


Two officials in the county’s Treasurer’s Office completed a recent training to increase their education and knowledge on how to improve operations in the Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office.

Treasurer Nancy Bearce and Deputy Treasurer Irene Serna attended the annual meeting of the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers (NACCTFO) in Las Vegas, Nev. earlier this month. The meeting includes continuing education courses in policy and management offered by the Graduate Program in Public Administration at Wayne State University.

“County collectors, treasurers, and finance officers must constantly upgrade practices in their offices in order to best serve the needs of the public,” says Kyu-Nahm Jun, director of the Public Administration at Wayne State. “The certification program provides the opportunity to learn from nationally-recognized faculty, and to share information with colleagues from across the nation. This prepares them to serve the public more effectively.”

Session topics included talent retention, revenue recovery, and trends in county government organization. Participants also engaged in an information sharing session where they shared best practices with their peers.

“Participating in the program provided me with fresh ideas to keep our county on the cutting edge of public service,” says Deputy Treasurer Irene Serna.

Treasurer Nancy Bearce was awarded the “Martinelli First Step Award” for attending the annual meeting for the first time. “I gained a better understanding of federal legislation and regulations and how the law affects county government operations, including tax collection and overall treasury management,” says Treasurer Nancy Bearce.
