Emanuel County Commissioners James Canady and Desse Davis were honored recently for completing the nationally recognized Certified Commissioners Advanced Program (CCAP). They were awarded certificates of recognition at a ceremony at the Fall Policy Conference of the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) in Atlanta in September.
Cosponsored by ACCG and University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, CCAP continues training efforts of county officials who have already completed the Commissioners Training Program. Goal of both programs is to enhance local governments’ ability to provide public services responsibly, efficiently and cost-effectively.
To receive the CCAP certification, officials must complete 48 hours of instruction, participate in a leadership seminar and complete an individual project summary report. This is in addition to 48 hours of instruction required for certification in the Commissioners Training Program.
