IMPORTANT: Sunday Reception Change

Reception at Morrell Park has been changed to 4:00 o'clock River Concourse at the Conference Center

Early Registration

If you would like to get a head start on previewing your conference materials, we will be opening the ACCG Registration Desk on Thursday afternoon, April 16, 5:00-6:00 p.m. This will allow you to take advantage in several important ways:

  • You can pick up your name badge, conference materials, and delegate “goodies” before everyone else.
  • You can review your schedule and make your plans for the conference, all from the comfort of your hotel room on Thursday evening.
  • You can avoid the longer lines and crowds that are likely to be present on Friday morning, right before our educational classes get started.
  • You get more time to enjoy a relaxing breakfast before class on Friday morning.

Sounds like a win-win-win!

If you are not able to get registered Thursday afternoon, 5:00-6:00, it’s not a problem. We will be open and ready to get you registered at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning. If you are registering on Friday, please arrive in plenty of time to pick up your materials, grab a bite to eat, and still be seated in your meeting room and ready to go before 8:30 a.m.

If you are not taking a class on Friday, please help us by waiting to come to Registration until after 8:30 on Friday. This will allow us to get everybody who is taking a class, registered and where they need to be, on time.

2015 ACCG Annual Conference Brings Innovation Integration to Savannah/Chatham County

Why Innovation Integration? A new year of new things brings forth innovative approaches to county governance.
The year 2015 has brought ACCG into its second century of service. In current years, the way in which information is disseminated and communicated has changed on a daily basis. ACCG wants to better prepare, and ultimately equip, county officials with the necessary tools they need in order to govern effectively in an ever-changing political landscape in the 21st century. This year’s conference of “things new” will focus on modern leadership approaches and technological advances that will usher Georgia’s counties into a new era! Preview the lineup of informative training sessions by accessing the conference agenda.

New Year, New Ideas, Changes to the Conference Agenda

There are a few changes to the Annual Conference agenda of which county officials must be aware. Saturday evening marks one major change as the celebratory event that was previously held on Sunday night will now be held on Saturday. The celebration will begin with dinner and will feature a dance with special guest the Rivertown Band as entertainment. Be sure to join ACCG and its oldest partner Yancey Bros. for an evening of fellowship and fun! Monday, April 20, will serve as an additional day of classes in the Lifelong Learning Academy. There are no other conference events scheduled for that day, thus only commissioners taking an educational course are expected to attend. Classes will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will end at 3:30 p.m.
