Hogansville City Council Member George Bailey was recognized Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, for his dedication to continued training during the Georgia Municipal Association  2019 Mayors’ Day Conference in Atlanta.

Bailey was awarded the prestigious Certificate of Excellence for achieving 120 hours of training through the Harold F. Holtz Municipal Training Institute.

The 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 120 hours of training, including at least 54 hours from the required list, the Newly Elected Officials Institute and the Robert E. Knox, Jr. Municipal Leadership Institute.

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