Oakman honoured

The Comox Valley Regional District chief administrative officer earned a certificate from the provincial Board of Examiners.

The Comox Valley Regional District’s chief administrative officer is one of five people earning certificates from the provincial Board of

Examiners for achievements in education and work experience.

Debra Oakman earned a certificate in local government executive management.

Certificates recognize academic training and work experience in local government. Candidates

qualify based on their experience and mandatory education criteria determined by the provincial Board of Examiners.

On average, only 25 local government certificates are awarded annually to employees of municipalities, regional districts and improvement districts throughout the province.

The provincial Board of Examiners helps improve professional skills of local government employees in British Columbia. Established under the Local Government Act in 1948, the three-member board represents the Local Government Management Association of B.C., the Union of British Columbia Municipalities and the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.
