Patrice Toney, a budget and management analyst for Forsyth County, has successfully completed the 2012-2013 County Administration Course of the School of Government at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The program in County Administration is designed for managers, department heads and officials whose responsibilities require a broad understanding of functions beyond individual areas of specialization. The course is approximately 150 hours in length, and more than 60 instructors participate in leading the program. Course instruction covers North Carolina local government law, organization and management, finance and budgeting, employment law and administration, planning and regulation of development, and the delivery of specific city or county services.
Toney was one of 98 officials who graduated from the course this year and is one of more than 2900 officials who have completed the course since it began in 1964.
