The voluntary Budget and Evaluation Officer Certification program is designed to enhance the local government budget and evaluation profession in North Carolina. As a partnership of NCLGBA & the UNC School of Government, it recognizes individual achievement for an established level of knowledge on the topics of budgeting, performance and evaluation.
Individuals who meet these standards of professional experience, courses and exams are designated as Certified Budget & Evaluation Officers by the North Carolina Local Government Budget Association (NCLGBA). An important aspect of this endeavor is that the certification program is consistent with the goals of the NCLGBA:
• To strengthen communications and provide opportunities for professional growth and development through the exchange of ideas;
• To investigate, study, discuss, and recommend improvements in the application of budget and evaluation methods;
• To collect, compile, and distribute pertinent information about the administration of budget responsibilities; and
• To promote, sponsor, or conduct training and education programs through the participation in association sponsored events and meetings.
