Certified Public Management Alums Earn Awards
Omaha - Two alumni of the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Nebraska “Certified Public Manager®” (CPM) Program recently received statewide awards for projects completed and implemented as part of their CPM training.
Capt. Kevin Conlon and Bill Brecks each received an Askew Award, given each year the American Academy of CPMs (AACPM) to “acknowledge the efforts of those who have demonstrated exemplary work in the completion of their CPM projects,” according to a statement from Mary Hamilton, director of the Nebraska CPM Program.
The awards were presented at this year’s annual AACPM conference in Salt Lake City Oct. 11.
Conlon, a deputy at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO), produced a program called “Webcast Recruitment” that encourages the use of interactive webcasts to educate potential deputy candidates for the DCSO.
Brecks, chief building inspector for Lexington, Neb., created a program called “¿Qué es servicio a la público? What is public service?” that addressed barriers, specifically communication barriers, between governments and their citizens.
An additional ceremony for Conlon and Brecks will be held at this year’s CPM graduation ceremony. The ceremony will take place at 132D College of Public Affairs and Community Service, at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9.
For questions about the Nebraska CPM Program, the projects or the upcoming graduation ceremony, please contact Mary Hamilton at email@example.com or by phone at (402) 554.2625.
