Created in 1995, the Leadership Academy for County Officials was developed by the University of Illinois in partnership with the United Counties Council of Illinois (UCCI) to provide leadership skills training on issues which are important to county elected and appointed officials. For anyone seeking to manage and lead more effectively, the academy offers a learning network and connection to cutting edge information. The curriculum is designed for county officials who want to explore new ideas and learn practical methods that are relevant to current issues, challenges and opportunities across the state. The five interactive sessions are structured to allow participants to learn, share, and apply on a variety of topics both cutting edge and practical.
