Boca Raton’s Deputy City Manager Recognized for Excellence in Leadership
On Friday, June 10, 2016, the Florida City and County Management Association (FCCMA) presented its 2016 awards at an annual conference in Orlando, Fl. The statewide organization, which is devoted to advancing excellence in professional management of local government, recognized a group of distinguished individuals for outstanding service to Florida’s communities, including Boca Raton’s own Deputy City Manager, George Brown.
Brown, who received the award for Excellence in Leadership, has been with the City for 33 years.
Mayor Susan Haynie was in attendance to present the award to Mr. Brown. “Not only has George exemplified leadership in our city for over three decades, as a longtime resident, he understands the foundation and history of the community and has worked hard to create the balance needed for continual progress while supporting the history and traditions that are Boca Raton.”
“Every year, FCCMA gathers to honor members for their outstanding contributions to the profession and to this association,” President Michael Pleus said at the awards ceremony. “This is an opportunity to show our respect for each recipient and to thank them for all they do.”
“The award is a tribute to the quality of our City organization,” commented Mr. Brown. “I’m humbled to be recognized as a contributor to our tradition of excellence in public service.”
FCCMA was formed in 1946 and is an affiliate of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), which awards the designation of Credentialed Manager (ICMA-CM). The FCCMA has more than 600 members across Florida. FCCMA is a member-driven, ethical, inclusive organization committed to the council-manager and commission-manager forms of government, dedicated to effective partnerships with elected officials, devoted to the advancement of excellence in professional management of local government in the state of Florida, and determined to provide quality of service to its membership and the local governments it serves.
