Howard was honored for successfully completing the requirements for the intergovernmental relations track and economic and community development track in the Lifelong Learning Academy.

For over two decades, ACCG and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia have worked in concert to provide supplemental training and educational tools for county officials. Members work to complete core requirements and can then choose from the abundant course options in a number of specialty tracks, such as intergovernmental relations and disaster and emergency preparedness.

“The development of our membership to better serve their counties is the core of the classes we offer,” said Ross King, ACCG’s Executive Director. “Year after year, county officials face the burden of high stakes leadership and make decisions on pressing issues both old and new. Our programs guide officials through this pressure, giving them the tools they need to not only face, but overcome obstacles.”
