The Association of Public Treasurers of the U.S. and Canada announced in August the newly installed 2018-2019 Board of Directors for the association, and city of Tahlequah Finance Director Danya Curtis is among those honored with the director title.
APT US&C represents public treasury and finance officials in local, county and state/provincial governments to provide quality treasury management education and training, professional certification, peer interaction, and professional connection opportunities for public treasury and financial officials, according to the association.
“The association provides educational seminars and conferences to support its nationally-recognized accreditation programs that award a certified public funds administrator, an Advanced CPFA, a Certified Public Funds Investment Manager, and an Advanced CPFIM qualification to members who earn enough credits to merit the designations. APT US&C also provides nationally-recognized certification training for cash handling, cash flow forecasting, internal controls/fraud prevention, disaster preparedness, debt policy, investment policy and revenue collections,” a release states.
City Administrator Edward Carr said this is a prime example of the kind of individual the city hires.
“Danya has stepped in and made vast improvements within our finance department over the past year, and she continues to provide outstanding service to the city,” he said. “I know she’ll continue to provide a watchful eye on the city’s finances and be a valuable contribution to this association.”
Curtis said it’s an honor and a privilege to represent the city of Tahlequah, and she will do everything she can to continue to shed a bright light in the finance department.
According to a letter from APT US&C President Kenneth Robinson, Curtis will serve on the APT US&C 2018-’19 Board of Directors as a new director of the association.
“Participation at the management level of a national organization like APT US&C strengthens both your organization and ours – the exchange of ideas and expertise that Danya is able to gain by her partaking in a wider landscape of treasury-related topics and issues is invaluable,” said Robinson.
