IACT Annual Conference Recap

Posted on August 18, 2015 at 8:27 PM by Kristin Cundiff

At the 90th Annual Idaho Association of County Treasurers, Ada County Treasurer, Vicky McIntyre, took the helm in Wallace, Idaho on August 5, 2015.  Other officers of IACT for the 2015-2016 term are:  Vice President Deanna Curry, Power County Treasurer, Secretary, Kristine Lund, Jefferson County Treasurer, Treasurer, Tricia Poulsen, Bear Lake County Treasurer, Parliamentarian, Lois Reed, Latah County Treasurer, Historian, Mary Ann Heiser, Lemhi County Treasurer, and Past President, Christina “Tine” Wines, Gooding County Treasurer.

The mission of IACT is to provide an effective communication network and to be a source of education for County Treasurers while promoting integrity, credibility and professionalism.  Our conference provided education on Idaho Statutes, Warrants of Distraint, and personal development topics.

IACT contracts with North Idaho College for education.  Through this relationship, the organization awards competency recognition for various levels of education achieved.  Earning recognition at this conference for Certified Finance Official were: Tanna Beal, Bingham County Treasurer, Becky Peterson, Twin Falls Chief Deputy Treasurer, and Amber Sloan, Elmore County Treasurer.  Earning recognition for Certified Finance Professional were Vicky McIntyre, Ada County Treasurer and Kristine Lund, Jefferson County Treasurer.  Earning recognition as Certified Finance Executive was Lois Reed, Latah County Treasurer. Being recognized for 150 hours of education were Regina Pentzer, Nez Perce County Chief Deputy, Deanna Shannon, Bannock County Chief Deputy, Gail Peterson, Blaine County Chief Deputy, and Christina “Tine” Wines, Gooding County Treasurer.  Earning recognition for 200 hours of education was Connie Goins, Gem County Treasurer.  Barbara Fry, Nez Perce County Treasurer was recognized for 250 hours of education.

The Mills-Adler award was created by the Idaho Association of Counties (IAC) in honor of two distinguished county elected officials: the late Darwin Mills, Lincoln County Sheriff, and the late Betty Adler, Payette County Treasurer.  Both Darwin and Betty exemplified the qualities all county elected officials attempt to strive for.  Annually, each Association of IAC awards an elected official within their Association, this designation.  The individual who has made significant contributions to the improvement of the IACT through their dedicated service this year was Debbie Kauffman, Twin Falls County Treasurer.

President McIntyre has launched a campaign within the Treasurers’ association called “Change for a Change”.  Each time county treasurers meet during the year they will collect their pocket change.  The money will be donated to a needy individual or an organization that the association determines could benefit from a ‘change’.  A collection was taken the last day of our conference that yielded $46.24.  

Other officials within IAC are asked to follow this lead and find a way to ‘make a difference’.
