The Academy for Excellence in Local Governance is a voluntary certificate program for elected and appointed officials in local government. It was founded by MACo, the Maryland Municipal League (MML), and the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT), and is administered by the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy. It is a professional development program designed to train informed and responsible local officials, thereby providing Maryland jurisdictions with the leadership needed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The County track of the Academy requires that Fellows complete 8 Core Courses and 6 Elective Courses to graduate from the program and receive their certificate. County track courses are offered at MACo conferences and selected events.
MACo’s Summer Conference is August 14-17, 2013 at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, MD. There will be 8 opportunities to earn Academy credits at MACo’s Summer Conference: 2 CORE courses and 6 ELECTIVE courses.
