Gwinnett District 1 Commissioner Jace Brooks has completed the quality of life/social issues specialty track in the Association County Commissioners of Georgia Lifelong Learning Academy.
The quality of life/social issues track enlightens participants about factors essential for livable communities including community health, parks, sustainability and policy decisions regarding these complex issues.
“It’s important to me to keep growing to better serve my district,” Brooks said. “What I’ve learned in the Lifelong Learning Academy helps me see the big picture of quality of life in our county as well as smaller details and strategies that I can use to serve my corner of Gwinnett.”
County officials work to complete core certification requirements and then choose from several specialty tracks, such as intergovernmental relations and disaster and emergency preparedness. The Lifelong Learning Academy has been essential for Gwinnett officials to enhance their knowledge in various areas.
“Since its inception, the Lifelong Learning Academy has provided Georgia’s county officials with the tools and resources to help move their communities forward,” said Dave Wills, ACCG executive director.
