    Remarks from ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield

    More than a dozen County Commissioners have committed to being a part of our PLAN leadership experience over the next 20 months. The decision is significant because their collective journeys will impact their local communities, their commissions, this organization and even the staff members who walk with them. It is the most rewarding thing we do, and we can’t wait to start!
