Okaloosa County Commission Vice Chairman Nathan Boyles has completed the Florida Association of Counties Certified County Commissioner Program.
The program encompasses about 42 hours of training in ethics, public records, Sunshine laws, growth management, financial management, emergency management, economic development, state legislative process, leadership and strategic thinking.
“Helping lead a county of nearly 200,000 residents is a challenging job. The information learned through becoming a certified county commissioner has helped to make me a better commissioner for Okaloosa County,” Boyles said.
Boyles, who also serves on FAC’s board of directors, is a commissioner liaison for Clerk of Courts, Purchasing, Water and Sewer, Growth Management and Information Systems within the county. He also is a community liaison for the Business Industry Association, Library Cooperative, Law Library, Transportation and Regional Planning.
