  • 0

Commissioner Jamie Timberlake has recently been honored at the 103rd annual Conference of the Commissioners of the Revenue Association by earning Office Accreditation for the third consecutive year.

Accreditation is awarded only to offices that have met the rigorous standards set forth by the Commissioners’ Association. The 12 standards set forth by the association include education requirements for the commissioner and staff, customer service, personnel and ethics policies as well as assessment methodology. Each office receiving accreditation has undergone an audit to ensure compliance and will be required to annually demonstrate they continue to meet these standards.

“Commissioner Timberlake has demonstrated a commitment to Powhatan County and to good governance. This is an honor that was earned through hard work and leadership. It signifies that the Powhatan County’s Commissioner of the Revenue office has met the highest standards of professionalism as set forth by the Commissioners of the Revenue Association of Virginia,” stated The Honorable Thomas Blackwell, past president of the Association.

Blackwell further added, “The Commissioners of the Revenue Association of Virginia has always been at the forefront in seeking to improve professional skills and overall performance for the good of the Commonwealth and its localities. Commissioners from around the state have worked to attain Office Accreditation in order to ensure greater accountability and increased uniformity with respect to office procedures for all our taxpayers.”

“This accreditation is not mine. It belongs to the dedicated staff of the Powhatan County Commissioners of the Revenue Office, ” said Jamie Timberlake, Master Commissioner-Powhatan County. “Their constant pursuit of knowledge and excellence in customer service is what should get the recognition. When the program first begun three years ago, we were one of the first offices to receive the acknowledgement. Doing it three years in a row shows we are committed to not be satisfied with status quo but strove to continue to be better.”
