CASS COUNTY RECEIVES GFOA AWARD
Cassopolis, Michigan – The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the County of Cass by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to Administrator/Controller Terry L. Proctor who is designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.
“I would like to give credit to CPA Becky Moore, Treasurer Linda Irwin and the County staff for this award,” said Terry Proctor. “These dedicated employees work hard to make this report accurate and I’m glad that their efforts have been recognized.”
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 16,000 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.
