NASHVILLE-Sheilah Strobel, Recorder for the Town of Parrottsville, was among the 175 municipal finance officers who were awarded the Certified Municipal Finance Officers (CMFO) certificate on Feb. 22 in Nashville.

The program requirements were completed by 216 finance officers, city recorders, city managers, and mayors. This class brought the overall total of certified municipal finance officers to 313. These individuals completed a two-year program that consisted of 11 courses covering eight different topics, and they passed an exam for each course.

The CMFO program was developed after the state legislature passed a law that required certain municipal finance officers to be certified. MTAS worked with assistance from and review by the State of Tennessee Comptroller's Office to develop the program objectives and content. This certification program is at the forefront of programs nationwide that focuses on the role of the municipal finance officer.
