North American finance association recognizes ‘pioneering efforts’ of Marin staff
San Rafael, CA – For the eighth consecutive year, the Marin County Department of Finance has received the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting. The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) presented the latest honor for the County’s 2018 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
“We hope that your example will encourage other government officials in their efforts to achieve and maintain an appropriate standard of excellence in financial reporting,” wrote Michele Mark Levine, director of GFOA’s Technical Services Center.
The County’s six-member finance team includes Anu Bagchi, Angela Hollern, Hien Le, Sara Reeder, Sherry Saephanh, and Phil Scott. The team is led by Assistant Finance Director Mina Martinovich.
“Receiving the GFOA award over the past eight years truly reflects the strong work ethic, high standards and financial expertise of the Department of Finance staff and management,” said Roy Given, Director of Finance. “I am truly fortunate to work with such a dedicated and motivated team.”
The GFOA represents public finance officials in the U.S. and Canada, and boasts more than 17,800 members of federal, state/provincial, and local finance officials between the two countries.
