Two leaders within Hall County Government were recently named to state boards by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
Kathy Cooper (pictured), who represents District 1 on the Hall County Board of Commissioners, was named to the Georgia State Board of Architects and Interior Designers. The Board has the authority to adopt rules, set standards for licensure, adopt mandatory standards of professional conduct, and investigate and discipline unauthorized, negligent or incompetent practice within the architecture and interior design industry.
“It is an honor to be appointed to this board, and I look forward to continuing my public service to my community and my state in this new capacity,” said Cooper.
The Board is comprised of nine members appointed by the governor. Six members are registered architects, two members are registered interior designers, and one member is appointed from the public at large (Cooper). All members are appointed for terms of five years.
Meanwhile, Lisa MacKinney, director of the Hall County Library System, was named to the Georgia State Board for the Certification of Librarians, which ensures librarians who work for any public library serving a population of 5,000 or more and every library operated by the state or its authority meet certain minimum education qualifications.
“I look forward to serving at the state level and am humbled to represent Hall County on this board,” said MacKinney.
The Georgia State Board for the Certification of Librarians is also comprised of six members, five of whom are appointed by the Governor, and serve for terms of five years.
Cooper and MacKinney were two of 21 appointees announced by the governor’s office on Oct. 30.
