County Track Requirements
Fellows in the county track complete eight core classes.
(County Track Core Class Descriptions)
County fellows also complete six elective classes of their choice.
Selected workshops at MML, MACo, and LGIT conferences are designated as being eligible for Academy elective credit. Occasionally, freestanding classes are also offered as Academy electives. Municipal fellows complete five electives and county fellows complete six electives that fall under the following broad categories: communications, economic development and tourism, environmental issues, finance, human resources and personnel administration, intergovernmental relations, land use planning, leadership development, legal and liability issues, service delivery, and technology.
Participation in the Academy requires a registration fee of $250. For county elected officials only, MACo contributes $150 toward the $250 fee. The Academy registration fee covers a portion of the administrative costs associated with managing the Academy, mailings, program brochures, certificates, and lapel pins. There are no additional fees for taking Academy classes offered at regular MML, MACo, and LGIT conferences and conventions or at workshops presented by any of the Academy partners, other than the customary registration fees for attending the conference or event itself. Academy-approved classes offered in other venues may carry a nominal fee to cover actual costs.
Enrollment forms may be printed from this web site and mailed with payment to the address given on the form. Please use the General Enrollment Form. Officials may enroll prior to taking classes, or they may enroll within 30 days of taking an Academy class and receive credit for that class provided that their Class Evaluation and Verification of Attendance form was submitted and that payment has been received.
