City and County Attorneys Gather in Athens

City and County Attorneys will gather in Athens, Georgia September 8, 2011, for the 58th Institute for City and County Attorneys. The two-day program includes a broad array of subjects of interest to city and county attorneys.

The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) will update participants on recent laws passed by the legislature. The program also includes updates on emerging trends and provides participants with an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the state.

The Thursday night reception is always a big hit because it provides an opportunity to seek informal advice from colleagues in a relaxed setting. I look forward to seeing you there.

Making Connections at ACCG

My best friends Rosalind Newell, June Green and I recently attended the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) conference in Savannah.  County Commissioners from around the state attend this conference which is held annually. It was great to re-connect with old friends, while staying up-to-date on legal issues affecting counties. One of the highlights of the conference was a presentation at the County Attorney seminar by Attorney General Sam Olens. He spoke on proposed changes to the State’s Open Records and Open Meetings laws.

Since I was with my girls, however, we managed to extend the conference into a mini vacation on Hilton Head Island. Let’s just say that in addition to beautiful beaches, Hilton Head Island has great shopping!
