West Palm Beach, FL – The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s Office has been named recipient of the 2020 Public Information Program Award from the International Association of Assessing Officers. The award is presented annually, to an assessment jurisdiction that has developed and implemented an effective system for distributing information to taxpayers and other stakeholders.

The video series that was submitted - Celebrating Women's History Month – March 2019, profiled the contributions of some of the longest serving female employees in the Property Appraiser’s Office.

“We selected the Women's History Month video series for consideration in conjunction with the recognition of this year's centennial of the 19th Amendment,” said Palm Beach County Property Appraiser Dorothy Jacks, CFA, AAS. “The theme honors the confident women in our office who forged a path toward equality in their careers just as the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights for women,” she said.

“Thank you IAAO for the recognition and a special thanks to all the outstanding women who participated in the series,” said Jacks.
