We can provide Regional Commission council members with professional development opportunities.
Regional Commission council members will take part in the following educational opportunities:
Regional Commission council member orientation
policy workshops for council members at meetings of the Georgia Association of Regional Commissions
Regional Commission council member orientation will be offered at various locations around Georgia several times during the year.
Council members will learn about the tasks that each Regional Commission must accomplish and how to complete their work using best practices.
Topics will include:
funding sources and financial statements
management and best practices
ethical decision making
An online tutorial library will be available for board members on the topics of finance, state statutes, and funding sources.
To provide continuing education for council members, we will offer three-hour workshops at the Georgia Association of Regional Commissions' annual conference each year. These workshops allow council members to sharpen their knowledge around policy and councilmember roles and responsibilities.
