Awards and Recognition

Since 1993, CTG has earned recognition from state and national organizations for both our organizational accomplishments and the individual expertise and service of our staff. We have received honors ranging from the prestigious Ford Foundation’s Innovations in American Government Award to Governing magazine’s Public Official of the Year award. Each award and honor has special meaning to our organization, and we thank those who have extended this recognition. In 2008, we received the following awards:
