SCAC provides the Institute of Government for County Officials (the Institute) in cooperation with the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Center for Livable Communities at the College of Charleston and the Strom Thurmond Institute of Government and Public Affairs at Clemson University. The Institute is a training program designed to equip county officials with the tools needed to enhance their skills and abilities to function more effectively in their positions.

The Council Chairperson's Workshop is open to all council chairmen and vice chairmen. Participants will discuss the duties, powers, and responsibilities of the chair and vice chair leadership positions. Strategies for running effective meetings, the importance of rules of procedure, and building effective working relationships will also be addressed. Although the session will be geared toward new chairs and vice chairs, experienced chairs and vice chairs are encouraged to attend. This workshop is offered free-of-charge and participants will earn three hours of credit toward Level II certification.
