The Montana Municipal Clerk-Treasurers and Finance Officers Association (MMCT&FOA) is pleased to announce the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2019 is Jodi Rogers, Finance Officer of Choteau, Montana. The Lifetime Achievement Award is a reflection of significant contribution to the objectives of the Municipal Clerks/Treasurers profession, the improvement of municipal government in Montana and both contributions and improvements in the Clerks/Treasurers own community. Included in the qualities possessed by the recipient of the award are years of service, good relationships with fellow clerks and associations such as the Montana League of Cities and Towns and the Local Government Center, interest in education and furthering the Association.
Jodi, a 23-year veteran clerk, has been and is still, most notably revered as the mentor she has become to fellow clerks around the state and within the Association. She is professional, knowledgeable, and creative. Jodi has committed herself to the education of others through her participation on the Education Committee of the MMCTFOA and has been known to drop her own work to assist other new clerks in her area with budgeting, brainstorming and required reporting. She has been described as the “face of her community” and more than a mentor – a friend. Without a doubt, this Lifetime Achievement Award is a designation of which she is certainly worthy.
