Employees Completed the CPM Program to Become Certified Public Managers

The Lee County Tax Collector’s Office believes in the growth and development of our employees. We are constantly cultivating our team to find new leaders. We nurture and encourage our team members to take every opportunity to grow into leadership, not only within our community, but within our organization as well.

Recently, 10 of our LCTC employees completed the CPM program to become Certified Public Managers. The Certified Public Manager program is a nationally-recognized leadership development program for public managers and supervisors, but Florida is known to have one of the largest and most successful programs in the country. The CPM program consists of 32 days of classroom instruction, supplemented by homework assignments and open-book exams. There are eight four-day courses, known as Levels 1-8. These levels are typically scheduled every two to three months, so most CPM students complete the program in 18-24 months.


We are so proud of our team members for taking the time and initiative to further their education and become Certified Public Managers. Congratulations on all of your hard work and completing the CPM program Blanca Acierno, Ruby Castillo, Valarie Flowers, Patti Guthrie, LeeVan Jean-Baptiste, Krisztina Lane, Peggy Naylor, Kara Strain, Fred Watson and Bonnie Williams.


At the Lee County Tax Collector’s Office, we work harder to serve Lee County residents better. We’ve got your back!
