FACM Education Program

The Florida Association of County Managers are pleased to kick-off its Education Program. The Education Program will consist of two tracks – an Advanced Level track and an Intermediate Level track.

The Advanced Level track is designed for seasoned County Managers and will center on tactical strategies on emerging or challenging issues in county government and leadership development. These courses will offer CE, CEU or CPE’s for accreditation requirements.

The Intermediate Level track is designed for County Managers who are new to local government, have transitioned from a municipality or for those senior staff who aspire to be county managers and will center on technical strategies (along with some tactical direction) on topics and issues in county government.

The classes will be held in conjunction with FAC conferences and both tracks will only be available to FACM members. If you would like to take the opportunity to attend these classes, you can find more information on joining FACM or renewing your FACM dues HERE.

The first classes were held in conjunction with the 2022 FAC Annual Conference in Orange County, Florida.
