Director-South Candidate Donald Patterson
I have over 20 years of local government experience, including the last eight in Finance Department management positions. My experience includes direct treasury responsibility for both a medium sized special district and a large, complex city. My career focus has been on reviewing and implementing changes that help improve communications, focus on customers, while strengthening internal controls and upholding fiduciary responsibilities. I would like to utilize these skills to further work with CMTA and its Board and Executive Director to further leverage CMTA's ability to meet its members needs.
CMTA is a valuable organization that is an essential resource for those that are responsible for the agency's treasury function. CMTA's conferences, training partnerships with CDIAC, professional designations (CCMT and CTC), and Investment Policy Certification program all provided resources that are unparalleled. I have had the privilege of serving on CMTA committees this year assisting in identifying ways to make CMTA an even greater organization and would be honored to serve as your Director - South.
