City Clerk Suzanne McNeel, a Blackfoot native, has been elected vice president by members of the Idaho City Clerks, Treasurers and Finance Officers Association (ICCTFOA) for 2012-2013.
The ICCTFOA was formed to increase the professionalism of its members; improve city administration; advance the fullest measure of responsibility in local government and to cooperate with federal, state and local agencies, the Association of Idaho Cities, Idaho universities and other organizations to upgrade the efficiency of city government.
McNeel was elected and took the oath of office last month during the ICCTFOA Institute in Coeur d'Alene. There over 125 delegates representing cities from around the state were in attendance.
McNeel said that she was "thrilled and honored" to be elected to this position.
"This is a group that I have been involved with through the years and it will be fun and rewarding to serve," McNeel said. "We deal with things that pertain to our jobs so it will be a great learning experience too."
The Association of Idaho Cities was formed in 1947 and is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation organized to serve Idaho's 200 incorporated cities. The association influences policies and provides education, training and technical assistance to strengthen the ability of city elected officials and staff to serve their communities.
