County Government Academy Overview

The goal of the Alamance County Government Academy is to raise awareness about the responsibilities of county government and its vital role in the community. Participants will have a better understanding of the services and programs that county government provides to the residents.
Participants must be residents of Alamance County and are expected to attend every session. Members serving on board-appointed advisory boards/committees are encouraged to sign-up. Class size is limited, and the academy slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
