City Manager Rebecca Fleury is now an ICMA Credentialed Manager, meeting one of her Professionalism goals for 2015-2016.
She is now one of more than 1,300 local government management professionals currently credentialed through the ICMA Voluntary Credentialing Program.
To receive the International City/County Management Association credential, a member must have significant experience as a senior management executive in local government; have earned a degree, preferably in public administration or a related field; and demonstrated a commitment to high standards of integrity and to lifelong learning and professional development.
Fleury is qualified by seven years of professional local government executive experience, as well as her educational attainment. Prior to her appointment in the City of Battle Creek in October of 2014, she served as the Village Manager and Finance Director in Middleville.
Fleury also continues ongoing contributions to a number of community organizations, including the Rotary Club of Battle Creek, United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region, Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce and the BC Vision Steering Committee.
“I look forward to using this certification for the betterment of the city and will continue to work hard for our City Commission and all of our citizens,” Fleury said.
To maintain certification, Fleury must complete a professional development plan every year, with a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education, and submit that report to ICMA.
