Assistant City Administrator/Finance Director, Teresa Rotschafer, was inducted into the Iowa League of Cities Hall of Fame on Thursday, September 29, 2022, during their annual conference.
The Iowa League of Cities Hall of Fame Award was created to recognize individuals who have provided extraordinary public service to the League and local government.
Teresa has not only had an impact on local government, but her impact reaches the state and national level through her career accomplishments. She has demonstrated exceptional leadership on the local level (as a department head and former City Administrator), the state level (teaching public finance seminars at the Municipal Clerk's Institute for the Iowa League of Cities and active involvement in the Government Finance Officers Association) and on a national level (serving as the President of the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NPELRA)). She has also served on state-wide task forces and has been called upon to review and provide feedback on local and state-wide policies and initiatives.
Teresa is a true home-grown leader born and raised in Webster City. She received her education at Iowa Schools and has spent her entire professional career in local government in Iowa. Teresa is a lifelong learner, taking it upon herself to attend and participate in various professional development opportunities to maintain and expand her knowledge and skill. She has been active in many professional organizations and is well respected among her peers.
Join us in congratulating Teresa for receiving this prestigious recognition.
