County Board members are community leaders who are charged with advancing their county into the future. The Virginia Certified County Supervisors’ Program is designed to provide Virginia’s county supervisors with the opportunity to do just that. This five-course program takes roughly two years to complete. Each course begins with an opening session, followed by six to seven weeks of home study, then ends with a closing session. Students who complete all five courses graduate in a ceremony before their peers during the VACo Annual Conference in November.
New and seasoned supervisors are welcome to attend. Three courses will be offered in 2017.
