Jan was appointed Village
Treasurer on November 6, 1991, and Deputy Clerk on June 5, 1996.
As Treasurer I am responsible for depositing, investing and disbursing moneys for the Village of Oblong.
On August 2, 2005 I was recertified as an Illinois Municipal Treasurer (IMTA).
The IMTA is an intensive three year training program which provides 100 hours of instruction for municipal treasurer's. This program focuses on population changes, increasing responsibilities and legislative changes for treasurer's in municipal government. Completion of the institute provides points for IMTA certification.
Treasurer's who have earned IMTA certification must be recertified every five years and achieve this by attending Advanced Seminars. With increased responsibility there is a need for continued education in government, even for small towns and villages.
On June 26, 2010 she was recertified.
