Wheels Receives National Recognition for Financial Reporting and Marketing

We are proud to announce that our agency was recognized nationally last month for achievements in financial reporting and marketing.

For the 26th consecutive year, LAVTA has earned the prestigious Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). This award was received for LAVTA’s excellence in financial reporting in our FY2021 Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR).

The GFOA established this award in 1945 to encourage state and local government agencies to exceed the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles in preparing their annual financial reports. The award program assesses whether the financial statements of participating agencies provide the detail necessary for users of the information to adequately evaluate the financial health of the organization.

LAVTA was also named as the winner of two AdWheel First Place Awards by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). The annual AdWheel Awards competition recognizes the best marketing and communications efforts by transit systems throughout North America. LAVTA was recognized for its “Memorial Madden Cruiser” bus honoring the late John Madden as well as for a flyer developed for the Valley Link rail project. Both First Place entries are now eligible for AdWheel Grand Prize Awards that will be presented in October.
