[ARCHIVED] Treasurer’s office receives state accreditation

The City of Danville Treasurer’s office received its accreditation from the Treasurer’s Association of Virginia (TAV) on May 19, 2020.

 

The Office Accreditation program is a voluntary professional certificate program overseen by the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia. Sixty-seven treasurer’s offices received accreditation this year.

 

While it is not required for any treasurer’s office to be accredited, receiving accreditation acknowledges that the office meets the statewide best practices for performance in treasury management. 

 

As part of the accreditation process, offices must successfully pass an outside audit with no findings of material weakness. 

 

The rigorous accreditation process also requires proof of continuing education such as attendance of an ethics course by the treasurer (or a principal officer) and educational requirements for all staff. Accredited offices are required to have written policies in place addressing areas such as personnel, customer service and delinquent collections.

 

“These offices have met the highest standards of achievement and integrity measured by our association,” says Treasurers’ Association President Carla de la Pava. “We are proud of the 67 offices which received accreditation this year and the hard work and dedication it took for each of them to demonstrate excellence in fiscal management.”

 

About the Treasurers Association

The Treasurers Association has 187 active members across Virginia’s cities, counties, and towns. Their goal is to utilize education and networking to raise professionalism and fiscal leadership in Virginia’s Treasurers and their staffs. The Association hosts multiple classes and conferences to support its members and enable offices to stay current in practices and standards. Members adhere to a strict code of ethics and to the highest standards of performance as they seek to administer faithfully the funds entrusted to them by the citizens of Virginia.
