December 18, 2012
WASHINGTON, D.C. ~ As a means of recognizing his continued record of success and ongoing professional development, the International City/County Management Association has renewed the professional credentials of Farmers Branch City Manager Gary D. Greer.
Serving as City Manager of Farmers Branch since 2007, Mr. Greer is one of only 71 credentialed city managers, out of the more than 1,800 cities in Texas.
"It's an important qualification for city managers to be credentialed by ICMA," he explained. "But more than that, it is vital that city managers engage in constant and ongoing professional development that, in turn, enables active renewal of credentials."
ICMA established the credentialing program in 2001 to define and recognize local government managers and to promote lifelong learning. To maintain credentials, members must submit an annual report, describing 40 hours of professional development during the previous year.
