Palo County Recorder Sue Ruppert was recently honored for completing a certification program for Iowa County Recorders and Deputy Recorders.

The Iowa County Recorders Association recognized graduates of the program at a ceremony held on Wednesday, June 22.

The Iowa County Recorder Certification program provides Iowa County Recorders and Deputy Recorders with the opportunity to learn how to effectively and professionally fulfill their elected duties and to better serve their communities. It was created by the Iowa County Recorders Association with the assistance of personnel from the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach office.

The areas covered in the program are Leadership and Ethics, Open meetings and Open Records, Communications, Human Resources and Office Management, the Iowa Code, Technology Applications, and Local Government and Budgets.

County Recorders and Deputy Recorders who become certified must complete continuing education classes to retain their certification.

The completion of the program is a testimony to the dedication these graduates have to providing excellence in public service.

Please congratulate Sue as a newly Certified Iowa County Recorder.
