Douglas is honored at Mayors’ Day in Atlanta

GMA President Ken Steele, mayor of Fayetteville, left, and Carl Vinson Institute of Government Interim Director Dr. Jennifer Frum presented Cairo City Councilman James H. (Jimmy) Douglas a certificate for completing training through the Georgia Municipal Training Institute.

Cairo Councilman James H. (Jimmy) Douglas received a Certificate of Achievement from the Georgia Municipal Training Institute at the Georgia Municipal Association’s (GMA) Mayors’ Day Conference in Atlanta on Jan. 23.
The Georgia Municipal Training Institute, a cooperative effort of GMA and the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, provides a nationally recognized series of training opportunities for elected city officials. To receive a Certificate of Achievement, a city official must complete a minimum of 72 units of credit. The training program consists of a series of more than 40 six-unit courses.  
“This is an outstanding achievement,” said GMA Executive Director Jim Higdon. “We commend Council Member Douglas for this accomplishment and for the dedication he’s shown in using this valuable resource to become a more effective city official.”
Douglas is currently serving as the president of GMA’s tenth district and in that capacity serves on the GMA Board of Directors.
