Town of Gibbons councillor Darren McCann was given some kudos at Wednesday's (August 23) meeting.
After completing his Elected Officials Education Program (EOEP), he has now been recognized by the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA).
"It's seven mandatory full day courses that have to take place in the time from when you're first elected before the next election," said McCann.
McCann added they covered courses from ethics to taxation.
Very few people finish the course in a four year term.
The courses are in place to provide elected officials with extra training necessary to succeed in their positions.
