BLOOMINGTON – The Minnesota Association of County Officers (MACO) named Gary Poser, retired Director of Elections for the Secretary of State office, to its Honor Roll at the Annual MACO Conference held February 11-15, 2019 at the Doubletree Hotel in Bloomington, Minn.

The Honor Roll is the highest honor awarded each year by the MACO organization. The award is presented by the president of MACO to an individual or individuals in recognition of outstanding service and contributions to the Minnesota Association of County Officers. The Honor Roll has been given annually since 1996. Poser was recognized for his many years of dedication to the election process in Minnesota. The Secretary of State office works closely with Auditors in each of Minnesota’s counties as the primary election officials at the county level.

MACO is comprised of county Auditors, Treasurers, Recorders, Financial Officers and Registrars in Minnesota. All 87 Minnesota counties are members. Two individual associations combine to make up the MACO organization. These individual organizations include the Minnesota Association of County Auditors, Treasurers and Finance Officers (MACATFO) and the Minnesota County Recorders Association (MCRA).

In additional to the Honor Roll, awards also were presented to two outstanding members for service in 2018 – one to a MACATFO member and one to a member from MCRA. Individuals receiving awards are voted in by their peers.

E.J. Moberg, Auditor-Treasurer from Lyon County, and Amber Bougie, Chief Deputy Recorder in Hennepin County, received awards from MACATFO and MCRA, respectively.    

Also at the annual MACO meeting and conference, Becky McCann, Jackson County Recorder, was elected president of MACO for 2019. She succeeds Randy Schreifels, Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer, as president of the organization. Newly elected members to the MACO Board of Directors representing regions of the state were Linda Libal, Lake County Auditor-Treasurer; Char Rosenow, Douglas County Auditor-Treasurer; and   Mary Ann DeGroot, Pipestone County Recorder.
