The Arkansas Public Administration Consortium is currently accepting nominations for its nationally accredited Certified Public Manager® (CPM) program. For more than 30 years, the CPM program has been assisting mid- to upper-level managers in the public sector in developing their management skills through a series of seminars and projects.
The CPM program provides participants with the tools necessary to be effective, efficient managers. Participants determine their own management style and develop the skills necessary to meet the changing roles and resource challenges facing public and nonprofit organizations.
Each participant must be nominated by his/her agency supervisor and supervise at least two people. If the applicant is not in a supervisory position, a job description must accompany the application explaining why he/she is a manager.
I hope that you will share this professional development opportunity by nominating an employee or forwarding the information with other managers in your agency. The application deadline is July 15, 2016.
