Dr. Janet Cherrington [aka Dr. J] continues to remain active in International City/Country Mgmt. Assn, the League of MN Cities, and the Government Finance Offices’ Assn (GFOA). In May she attended the Government Finance Officers’ (GFOA) conference in Ontario, Canada. This conference and her GFOA membership has helped Janet expand her Urban Finance course by teaching practitioners and student not only the basis of fund accounting, budgeting, and strategies for capital improvement, but also debt management.
Janet is in her final year of a three-year phased retirement. In the meantime, she has been included in the sixty-fourth edition of Who’s who Among University Professors. One particular area in which Janet excels is building community-university partnership to help cities respond to the intensifying challenge of “place” competition. Her research and efforts have stimulated a sense of place in the communities she works with and, in turn, have contributed to the development of real-world strategic marketing planning.
