Macomb Township Treasurer Receives State Certification
Macomb Township Treasurer, Karen Goodhue, has received her certification as a Michigan Certified Professional Treasurer.
To achieve certification, Goodhue, who has served as the township's treasurer since her appointment in 2010, was required to complete the three-year Michigan Municipal Treasurer Institute's Basic program. This program is designed specifically to include courses in governmental accounting, state laws and regulations, investment policy and reporting, and cash handling.
These courses meet the certification requirements that are being developed by the MMTA as well as those prescribed
by the Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada.
Goodhue said she believes continuing education and networking with fellow treasurers is important
to better serve the residents of Macomb Township and is thankful that the township board also values education and has supported the pursuit of her goal.
"In the ever changing economic climate we are experiencing, it is beneficial to keep updated on issues and to share ideas with other Michigan officials," Goodhue said in a prepared statement.
Goodhue is a lifelong Macomb Township resident, Chippewa Valley Schools graduate and mother of five.
She was formerly a member of the New Haven Community Schools board of education and is affiliated with the Macomb County Treasurer’s Association, Macomb County Association of School Boards, and Macomb County Association of School Boards Legislative
