Reeves earns professional investment designation

Contributed

Administrators of the Texas Association of Counties (TAC) recently certified Bandera County Treasurer Billie Reeves as a County Investment Officer (CIO).
The County Investment Officer (CIO) award is a professional credential presented to an elite group of county officials and employees, who complete approximately 40 hours of formal classroom instruction, successfully complete a comprehensive examination and continue to participate in on-going education classes.
The curriculum incorporates classroom lecture and self-study. Reeves has completed 56.75 of the required 20-hour minimum. The program safeguards public funds by introducing modem operational techniques that provide the county with appropriate yield from taxpayer dollars.
Since the formal investment officer-training program began in 1992, more than 50 percent of Texas counties now have certified investment officers. These officers are primarily responsible for handling the investment of county tax dollars. By being certified as a CIO, Reeves joins this distinguished group of Texas county officials.
