DUBLIN  — Continuing education is an important part of a county auditor’s term.

Huron County Auditor Roland Tkach recently participated in the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio education workshop held at the Columbus Marriott Northwest in Dublin.

Tkach not only was able to listen to presentations from various individuals, including fellow auditors and attorneys, but was a member of a three-person panel which presented on human resources challenges, including hiring and managing employees.

Tkach’s panel group included Wayne County Auditor Jarra Underwood and Athens County Auditor Jill Thompson.

“I’m glad we were able to share some of our experiences regarding human resources,” Tkach said. “Employees are the most valuable asset of any organization.”

About 100 people attended the workshop.

Other topics included revaluation, public outreach before, during and following reappraisal, tax rate calculation, county auditors’ role in issuing debt, the conveyance process and use of social media in communications with constituents.

“This workshop really focuses on current topics and finding the most efficient ways government can work,” Tkach said. “There was a lot of experience in the room, along with the newly-elected county auditors.” 

Tkach was able to spend a good portion of the day with Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes, who has been in office since 1991.

“It was a pleasure to see Dusty Rhodes, who brings a whole lot of life experience to the table,” Tkach said.

“Overall, it was a very profitable day for everyone who attended.”
