State employees offer solutions to critical issues

MONTGOMERY, AL – Managers of state agencies will offer solutions to some of Alabama's most challenging issues at the 2010 Solutions Alabama program.

Hosted by Auburn University at Montgomery's Alabama Training Institute, the program highlights students in AUM's Certified Public Manager (CPM) program and how they approach critical issues impacting the state. 

Composed of state employees from across Alabama, CPM students have spent the past year working to find solutions to critical issues identified by state leaders as having the potential to hinder the state's progress or adversely impact its citizens. The program seeks to develop and enhance the skills of managers in Alabama by inspiring new ways of thinking and innovative approaches to problem solving.

"The students in the CPM program represent some of state government's top experts in their fields," said Leslie Meadows, program director. "The Solutions Alabama project has allowed these managers to demonstrate their knowledge, apply their expertise in unique ways and uncover findings that have a significant impact on our state."

The presentation will take place on Friday, August 13th from 10 a.m.-11 a.m., in the auditorium of the Alabama Capitol. The presentations will explore four key areas: 

  • Alabama's high school dropout rate
  • Unemployment tax rates
  • Service delivery at the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences
  • Analysis of the driver's license division of the Alabama Department of Public Safety

The CPM program at the Alabama Training Institute has provided comprehensive management training to hundreds of leaders across Alabama for more than 20 years.
