It has been an incredible honor for me to represent Porter County and local government as a recipient of a 2018 national award from the Association of Government Accountants. Here is the local announcement about this honor:

Porter County Auditor Urbanik receives national award

Porter County Auditor Vicki Urbanik is one of the 2018 national award recipients honored by the Association of Government Accountants (AGA).

The just-released fall issue of the "Journal of Financial Management" highlights 14 of the government financial managers and accountants who received one of AGA’s national awards this year.
