French Lick – Carrie Mugford, Clerk-Treasurer of North Manchester, received the 2023 Financial Management Award from Aim (Accelerate Indiana Municipalities). Mugford received the award on August 23 during the Presidents’ Reception at the 2023 Aim Ideas Summit in French Lick. The Financial Management Award is given to a finance officer or administrator who has made outstanding achievements in fiscal management, financial recording, and leadership in public service.
When receiving her award, Mugford was recognized for her impeccable financial work, and “gold standard” approach, as well as her willingness to assist other clerks and clerk-treasurers through her extensive work with the Indiana League of Municipal Clerks and Treasurers, and International Institute of Municipal Clerks.
Aim CEO Matt Greller noted, “Strong financial management isn’t an option when you are a steward of public funds. Carrie Mugford not only possesses the fiscal expertise necessary for this position, she also represents the best of the best among her peers in terms of commitment, leadership, and her continuous quest for knowledge. It was an honor to see Carrie recognized in this manner.”
In its 47th year, the Aim Annual Awards program, presented by Baker Tilly Municipal Advisors LLC, recognizes communities and individuals in municipal government for excellence and outstanding achievement. A seven-member panel of qualified judges selected this year’s winners from a competitive field of nominees from around the state.
