Nassau County Commissioner Justin Taylor receives certification.

The Florida Counties Foundation (FCF) presented 39 County Commissioners with the Certified County Commissioner (CCC) designation following completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the Foundation. Nassau County Commissioner Justin Taylor (District 5) received the designation with 38 other county commissioners during an awards ceremony held at the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) Annual Conference in Orange County, Florida.

Upon completing the Certified County Commissioner Program, Commissioner Taylor stated that, “I highly recommend this program to any County Commissioner who wants to expand their leadership skills and gain a better understanding on how to effectively handle various issues such as growth, environmental protection, and budgetary restraints. The coursework associated with this program has provided me with additional knowledge I need to effectively represent my district, as well as Nassau County”.

Launched in 1996, the Certified County Commissioner Program is a voluntary program of study designed for county commissioners to learn information and enhance skills relevant to their duties and responsibilities through a series of courses totaling 45 hours. Since the inception of the program, a total of 459 Florida commissioners have received the CCC designation.

By participating in this program, commissioners gain valuable tools to assist them in their public service every day, said Florida Counties Foundation Director, Eric Poole. “The graduates today have shown an exceptional commitment to serving Florida’s counties”.

The CCC Program 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.

Well done, Justin. You’ll be a better and more efrective Commissioner for it. Thanks for making the investment in your education.
As they say, “if you think education is expensive, consider the cost of the alternative”.
