By Michelle R. Knutson, MACATFO President
Welcome to the Minnesota Association of County Auditors, Treasurers and Finance Officers, aka MACATFO!
I am humbled, honored and privileged to assume the role of President of MACATFO for 2018.
I have served as the County Auditor of Big Stone County since January of 1999. I graduated from Moorhead State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting and am a CPA. I have enjoyed learning all areas of the Auditor position including property tax and election administration as well as clerking the county board. But as you have probably guessed, I will have to say that I enjoy the financial responsibilities of my position the best! Even though the duties and responsibilities vary in our respective counties, we are all public servants and I want to personally thank you for your commitment to your position!
I look forward to continuing the important work towards fulfilling the mission of MACATFO during my tenure as President. For any new members reading this, our organization
With this mission in mind, I will strive to provide worthwhile educational topics as well as productive networking opportunities.
I am joined by my colleagues on the Executive Committee – First Vice President Denise Anderson, Second Vice President Chad Struss, Third Vice President Marc Iverson, Secretary Martie Monsrud, Treasurer Bob Hiivala and Past President Randy Schreifels. I am inspired by their commitments to this great organization. If there is anything we can do for you to help you in your position, please feel free to contact any one of us.
I wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous year and look forward to serving as your President!
