Rolf Kleinhans, the Sheriff’s Office Chief Fiscal and Administrative Officer & Chief Deputy Public Administrator, was recently installed as the president of the California State Association of Public Administrators (PA), Public Guardians (PG), and Public Conservators (PC).
This association is established by the State Legislature and is specifically directed to arrange for training and certification of all PAs, PGs, and PCs. This association serves all 58 Counties in California and is a valuable resource for all the PAs, PGs, and PCs. Every county throughout the state is required to have a designated representative. The association represents nearly 700 members by providing support and interaction of members. The association also provides legislative advocacy concerning any laws pertaining to the offices of PA, PG, and PC in each county and works to develop education and training programs to establish levels of competency.
Kleinhans was heavily involved in transitioning this association from a volunteer organization to a professionally staffed association in 2015. “I was directly involved in developing costs and budgets, bylaws and policies and ultimately hiring an Executive Director to oversee the association business,” said Kleinhans. “I am honored to be the president of this association and will continue to represent Nevada County on the statewide level.”
Before his vote for president, Kleinhans served on the Board since 2013 and held all the Officer Positions.
