Announcements: Two SCCPSS Employees Among Recent Graduates of the Board of the Georgia Academy for Economic Development Multi-Day Training Program

Title

Two SCCPSS Employees Among Recent Graduates of the Board of the Georgia Academy for Economic Development Multi-Day Training Program 

Body

SCCPSS School to Work Coordinator Timothy Sheppard and CTAE Supervisor Willis Blake were among class participants to recently complete Region 12 Training Program hosted by the Georgia Academy for Economic Development.  Training Program participants represent a number of professional and non-professional economic development fields, including elected officials, public servants, business leaders, educators, and social service providers from ten counties in Region 12 of Georgia. 

The Academy provides each of the graduates an opportunity to gain a unique understanding of the complexities of economic and community development on the local, regional, and state levels.  The multi-day program, taught one day a month over a four-month period, includes training in the basics of economic and community development, plus specialized segments on business recruitment and retention, tourism product development, downtown development,  planning, and other essentials for community success.  In addition, the curriculum features specific leadership skills such as consensus building, ethics in public service, collaborative leadership and other segments needed for effective community leadership in economic development.
