Georgia Municipal Training Institute, a cooperative effort of GMA and
the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government,
provides a nationally recognized series of training opportunities for
elected city officials. To receive a Certificate of Achievement, a city
official must complete a minimum of 72 units of credit, including six
courses from the required list. The training program consists of a
series of more than 40 courses.
“This is an outstanding achievement,” said GMA Executive Director Lamar Norton. “We commend Mayor Devey for this accomplishment and for the dedication she’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”
Based in Atlanta, GMA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that provides legislative advocacy, research, training, employee benefit and technical consulting services to its 500 member cities.
