On January 9-10 in Alachua County, FAC held its biennial New Commissioner Workshop. Over 50% of our newly elected Commissioners participated in this day and a half, in depth course. The course focused on a wide range of topics that are important for Commissioners to do their job including the nature of county organization, legal and ethical requirements, media training, finance and budget, and additional strategies for success. All FACTOR programs are sponsored by University of Florida/IFAS Extension.
