ATTENTION ALL CCC GRADUATES!  THE ACC APPLICATION WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AUGUST 15, 2018.

 

Registration for the ACC Program will be available on August 15th at 10:00 AM EDT.  To register, login to your portal on August 15 and select the 2018-2019 Advanced County Commissioner Program link under the Events tab.  Follow the prompts to apply for a spot in the upcoming program.  There are only 30 spots available, so be sure to login and apply as soon as you are able.  Before you apply to attend the ACC program, please check your calendars to ensure that you may attend all 3 workshops which are required to graduate from the ACC Program.  The dates for the 2018-2019 ACC program sessions will be:

 

October 18-19, 2018 - Class #1

January 10-11, 2019 - Class #2

April 11-12, 2019 - Class #3

 

In order to apply for the ACC Program, you must be a CCC graduate.  The tuition fee for the ACC Program is $450, which covers the cost of all three sessions as well as the group dinner on Thursday night, breakfast on Friday morning, and lunch on Friday afternoon (AND drinks and snacks while you are with us).  Outside of the $450 registration fee, the only additional expenses will be the cost for the hotel on Thursday night and travel to and from the UF Hilton. 

 

We will be offering scholarships for the ACC Program registration fee, these scholarships are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.  We have 3 Small County Scholarships available for counties with populations under 75,000 (limit 1 per county).  The earlier you apply for the ACC program and request a scholarship, the more likely you are to get a scholarship! 

 

UF/IFAS Extension is once again the sole sponsor of this program which means that all the ACC courses will be held in Alachua County at the UF Hilton.  Each class will begin on Thursday afternoon around 12:30 pm and will end on Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm.  This allows most commissioners time to travel the morning of the class and avoid the additional fee of another hotel night. 

 

 

The ACC program is organized as a series of three seminars, with 27 hours of course work. The course content focuses on leadership and the future of the state of Florida. Courses are different for each series and cannot be repeated. Participating Commissioners must commit to fully participate in all three seminars in order to graduate.
