Robert Bailey, Treasurer for the City of Lynchburg, was recently certified as a Master Governmental Treasurer under the Master Certification program administered by the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service and the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. The designation program was developed to enhance the professionalism of local government officials and their staff. The certificate was presented to Bailey at the spring District Meeting of the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia held in Farmville.
The certification program, which takes a minimum of two years to complete, requires the treasurer to take eight mandatory classes and pass a comprehensive exam in each course. In addition, the treasurer must earn a minimum of 70 hours of continuing education credits. Every four years after initial certification, the treasurer must complete an additional 80 hours of continuing education in order to remain certified.
Bailey was elected Treasurer of Lynchburg in 2016. The Treasurer's Office collects State estimated tax payments, issues Juror's checks, distributes State cigarette stamps and collects Sheriff's fees. Under Bailey’s leadership, the office relocated to a more visible and accessible area on the first floor of City Hall and expanded services to include DMV Select functions.
