Porter County Auditor Vicki Urbanik has been awarded the professional
designations of Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Certified Government
Financial Manager (CGFM).
Urbanik recently received both her CPA license and her CGFM certificate
after successfully completing the education, experience, and examination
components required of both designations. She is now one of a few county
auditors in Indiana who are also CPAs.
“My hope is that the knowledge I continue to gain as a CPA and a CGFM will
help further elevate the Porter County Auditor’s office to the most
respected and trusted office possible,” she said.
As part of her continuing education, Urbanik recently attended the AICPA
Governmental Accounting and Auditing Update conference in Washington, D.C.
She joined fellow CPAs from throughout the country working in government at
the federal, state, and local levels to hear expert speakers address the
latest changes in the profession. Urbanik paid for her conference expenses
herself and did not use county tax funds.
Urbanik also holds certification as a Level II assessor and the tax
professional designation of Enrolled Agent.
