Lilburn’s Tim Dunn receives training certificate of excellence

The Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute presented a Certificate of Excellence to Lilburn council member Tim Dunn.

The institute, a cooperative effort of Georgia Municipal Association and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, provides a series of training programs designed to help city officials enhance their knowledge and skills in municipal-related matters. With exception to the state-mandated Newly Elected Officials Institute, the courses are voluntary and offer city officials the opportunity to obtain additional training beyond what is required by state law.

To receive a Certificate of Excellence, a city official must complete a minimum of 120 units of credit, including at least 54 hours from a list of required courses. The training program consists of a series of more than 60 courses.

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

Dunn has served on the Lilburn City Council since 2007 and currently serves as Mayor Pro-Tem.
