Scheduled for Wednesday, September 19, at the Timberline Golf Club in Calera, the Golf Bash annually provides county leaders, vendors and Association staff with an opportunity to gather together for an enjoyable afternoon of networking on the links. So, if you haven’t already, be sure to mark your calendars for this exciting event. For Golf Bash details and questions, contact Jeannie Gaines, Public Relations Manager.


    2. County department heads urged to begin preparing now for new commissioners

    Commissioners are on the ballot in 50 counties this year, which means a significant number of county department heads could be working with new leaders come November. Even amid the smoothest transitions, newly-elected commissioners can encounter a steep learning curve as they assume their new responsibilities. If you’re a department head, there are steps you can take now to make the transition easier for both you and your new commissioner(s). For expert advice from fellow department heads, click here to read “Tips for welcoming new commissioners in November” or refer to your copy of the 90th Convention edition of the County Commission magazine.
