Commissioner Brant and other recipients were presented with their achievement certificates during the 2019 Legislative Leadership Conference at The Classic Center in Athens-Clarke County for successfully completing the core requirements to become a Certified County Commissioner.
“Since its inception, the Lifelong Learning Academy has provided Georgia’s county officials with the tools and resources to help move their communities forward,” stated Dave Wills, ACCG Executive Director. “Thanks to our long-standing relationship with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, we have been able to offer relevant course material that our members can take back to their respective communities.”
With the goal of providing continuing education and training opportunities for county officials through a leadership development program, the Lifelong Learning Academy is a partnership between ACCG and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. County officials work to complete core certification requirements and can then choose from the abundant course options in several specialty tracks, such as intergovernmental relations and disaster and emergency preparedness. The Lifelong Learning Academy has been essential in providing county officials with resources to enhance their knowledge in various areas.
“I am glad to improve my service to the citizens of Camden County by participating in ACCG’s Lifelong Learning Academy and the Certified County Commissioner program,” said District 1 Commissioner Lannie Brant. “This program provides vital information that I have used to benefit not only the residents of District 1, but all of Camden County.”
District 1 covers the north and west-central parts of Camden County, including the entire City of Woodbine. Prior to taking office in 2017, Commissioner Brant retired as the Solid Waste Director for Camden County in 2016 with over thirty years of service.
