Montgomery County staff members recognized | News
MONTGOMERY – Two from Montgomery County have recently distinguished themselves among their peers in county government around the state.
Terri Henderson, revenue manager in the Montgomery County Tax and Audit Department, was elected president of the County Revenue Officers Association of Alabama.
Henderson has more than 30 years of accounting experience, the last 10 years with Montgomery County. She holds the professional designation of certified revenue examiner.
CROAA exists to promote the proficiency and professionalism of county revenue officers who oversee collection of a variety of local taxes ranging from sales taxes to lodging taxes to license fees. The association organizes professional development opportunities and provides a unified voice in Montgomery on legislative issues. It is an affiliate of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama.
Montgomery County Revenue Auditor Twyla Jackson has earned professional designation as a Certified Revenue Examiner.
“Our county revenue officers face unique challenges in their daily activities, and it is especially important that our revenue employees have the skills necessary to deal with these challenges,” said Association of County Commissions of Alabama President Ricky Harcrow. “We are especially proud of these employees because their participation in this continuing education program shows their intent to become better public servants. This is a tested program, meaning much more than just showing up for a class. It is dedication to public service.”
The educational program includes four courses of 20 hours each. The program is administered by Auburn University’s Center for Governmental Services and the Alabama Local Tax Institute for Standards and Training.
The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization representing county government in Alabama. ACCA promotes improved county government services in Alabama, offers educational programs for county officials and their staff members, administers insurance programs for county governments and employees, offers legal advice, and represents the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies. The activities of the Association are governed by a board of directors composed of three officers, past presidents and representatives elected from 12 Alabama districts.
