Steven Beach, associate professor of finance in the College of Business and Economics (COBE) at Radford University, has been appointed associate director of the Governmental and Nonprofit Assistance Center (GNAC). He will develop professional educational material related to cash, banking, investment and debt management in the public sector.

RU's GNAC celebrated a milestone in May with the certification of the 100th Virginia fiscal officer. It now has more than 300 Virginia governmental financial officers enrolled in courses.
