Three commissioners recognized for the achievement

At the Nov. 15 Board of Commissioners regular meeting, Forsyth County Commissioners Dennis Brown, Cindy Jones Mills and Laura Semanson were recognized for the completion of their continuing education requirements within the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) Lifelong Learning Academy.  

According to the commissioners recognized, the information attained in the Lifelong Learning Academy has played a key role in the decisions they make as county officials and provides them knowledge of the various ways to effectively address issues impacting Forsyth County.

Classes offered in the Lifelong Learning Academy are designed to advance the functionality of county government by imparting new information to county officials. In collaboration with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, ACCG has sculpted the courses to provide officials with tools and resources to effectively navigate their role as a county official.

In October, the commissioners also received recognition for this accomplishment during a luncheon held at the 2018 Legislative Leadership Conference (LLC) at the Jekyll Island Convention Center in Glynn County, GA. The Legislative Leadership Conference is an annual event that focuses on policy issues impacting county government in Georgia. During the three-day conference, ACCG’s membership finalized its Legislative Agenda and Priorities that the association’s policy team will take before the General Assembly and Congress.
