Lake County Commission Vice Chairman Kirby Smith was recently presented with the Certified County Commissioner (CCC) designation from the Institute for County Government (ICG).

The CCC designation signifies the completion of an educational program to offer commissioners resources and teach them skills relevant to their duties and responsibilities as an elected official.

The CCC educational program, a voluntary program, consists of 45 hours of coursework. The program’s coursework covers a variety of topics, such as ethics and Sunshine Law, county government roles and responsibilities, county government structure and authority, financial management, growth management, negotiation skills, economic development, and effective communication.

“The program is designed for those who want to take the extra initiative to better serve the community. The CCC program helps commissioners broaden their knowledge on important issues and resources to help them effectively serve as a county commissioner,” ICG Executive Director Eric Poole said.

“I am honored to have earned the Certified County Commissioner designation from the Institute for County Government,” Smith said. “The ICG’s program has further prepared me to meet Lake County’s future challenges and I am looking forward to putting the skills I’ve learned to work for Lake County residents.”
