Clark County Auditor John S. Federer is a recipient of the “Distinguished
County Auditor” award, presented by the County Auditors’ Association of
Ohio (CAAO). The award recognizes County Auditors who have completed
100 or more hours of continuing education during their term of office. Mr.
Federer will be recognized and receive the award from CAAO President
Karl Keith, Montgomery County Auditor, during the CAAO Winter
Conference later this month. In recognizing this achievement the CAAO
notes, that when you consider the time commitments on County Auditors in
general, it is truly an accomplishment for a County Auditor to have over 100 hours of credit.
Section 319.04 of the Ohio Revised Code requires County Auditors to
complete at least 24 hours of continuing education during their term of
office. Mr. Federer obtained his training in topics such as Valuing Real
Property, Financial Audits, Certified Public Records Training, and two
mandatory classes in ethics and substance abuse.
