Bullock County Administrator Patrick Smith was presented with a Certificate in County Administration and recognized as a Certified County Administrator by the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA). The certificate was granted this August at the Association’s 92nd Annual Convention.
“We’re so proud of Patrick and the county employees across Alabama who have demonstrated their commitment to becoming better public servants by participating in this education program,” said ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield. “This is a proven program that requires participants to do more than simply show up for class. It involves a tremendous amount of dedication to making local government services better for our state’s residents.”
To receive a Certificate in County Administration, county employees approved to participate in the program must complete 60 hours of course work. In order to be recognized as a Certified County Administrator, the county administrator must have a Certificate in County Administration, at least three years of experience, and a resolution by the County Commission.
The Association of County Commissions of Alabama is a statewide organization speaking for all 67 counties with ONE voice. It promotes improved county government services in Alabama, offers educational programs for county officials and their staff members, administers insurance programs for county governments and employees, offers legal advice, and represents the interests of county government before state and federal organizations and agencies.
