City Commissioner (Ward 2) Kentaiwon Carter-Durham was awarded the Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute’s Certificate of Distinction during the Georgia Municipal Association’s (GMA) Annual Convention on June 26, 2023. The annual GMA Convention provides city officials with an opportunity to learn more about legislation under consideration, attend training sessions, and hear from state leaders.

 

 

To receive a Certificate of Distinction, a city official must complete a minimum of 204 hours of training, including at least 72 hours from a list of required courses from the Newly Elected Officials Institute and the Robert E. Knox, Jr. Municipal Leadership Institute. 

 

 

“This is an outstanding achievement,” said GMA Executive Director Larry Hanson. “We commend Commissioner Durham for this accomplishment and for the dedication he’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”

 

 

Commissioner Durham is serving his second term in office as an elected official for the citizens of Ward 2. He has previously been awarded the Certificate of Excellence, Certificate of Achievement, and Certificate of Recognition from GMA for his continuing education efforts with the Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute. He has also completed the Robert E. Knox, Jr. Municipal Leadership Institute and served as Mayor Pro Tem in 2018.

 

 

The Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute is a cooperative effort of GMA and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government and offers a nationally recognized training series for elected city officials. The Georgia Municipal Association is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, research, training, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its 537 member cities.  For more information about GMA and their benefits offered to Georgia cities, please visit their website, http://gacities.com.
