CARLSBAD — Leucadia Wastewater District President Elaine Sullivan, Vice President David Kulchin, Director Allan Juliussen, and Director Judy Hanson each received Special District Governance certification from the Special District Leadership Foundation.
To receive this certification, board members completed four courses provided by the SDLF Governance Academy and a minimum of 10 hours of continuing education.
The Governance Academy focused on Special District Governance, Finance, Community Leadership, and the Board’s Role in Human Resources. Each course helped board members learn how to develop a unity of purpose on their board, understand and work within their role in the district, build a strong, positive operational culture and organize the formal structure of a board.
The courses must be completed within five years and are taught by a faculty of directors, managers, attorneys, active consultants and advisors who specialize in special districts and local government. For these board members, this certificate represents tangible evidence of their professionalism and commitment to continuing education in special districts governance.
