At far left is Larry Pritchard, treasurer in Spotsylvania and past president of the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia. He stands with Suffolk Treasurer Ron Williams and Suffolk Mayor E. Dana Dickens III as they hold up an accreditation award that the Suffolk office has earned for the first time from the Treasurers’ Association of Virginia. Although the award was actually given during a conference in August, the local public presentation was made Wednesday night at the Suffolk City Council meeting. Having met a list of criteria (policies and procedures to follow; certified staff in career developments programs, for example) that treasurers’ offices must meet, the local Treasury staff filed for the recognition and was judged worthy of the award.
