Becker awarded by Iowa Municipal Finance Officers Association

Lansing City Clerk Katie Becker has been awarded the designation of "Iowa Certified Municipal Finance Officer" from the Iowa Municipal Finance Officers Association (IMFOA) for achieving its high educational, experience and service requirements. Becker joins a number of Municipal Officers in the state of Iowa who currently hold the designation through the program first launched by IMFOA in 2005.
