Certification Program

As governing becomes increasingly complex, elected officials are confronted with challenging issues relating to the financial stability, health, and welfare of their communities. Learning to govern efficiently, ethically, and wisely requires considerable time, effort, and education on the part of the elected official. New Mexico’s municipal elected officials now have an opportunity to participate in a special program that offers certification for seasoned and newly-elected officials. The voluntary three-tiered program provides the knowledge and tools necessary for effective and ethical leadership. The objective is to encourage continuing education, promote excellence in local governance and recognize local elected officials who take advantage of training opportunities. Participants who successfully complete all three levels will receive the distinguished designation of Certified Municipal Official (CMO) and receive a pin.  Classes offer elected officials an opportunity to master the specialized knowledge required for the leaders of New Mexico’s communities.
