NYSAC
County Government Institute Provides Opportunity for Learning and Certification
The NYSAC County Government Institute (CGI) is founded on the three pillars of good government:
  • Leadership,
  • Integrity, and
  • Accountability
Through courses and training within these pillars, CGI prepares rising and experienced county leaders for the challenges counties face, and equips them to engage in informed, constructive, and civil dialogue. The Institute is a partnership between NYSAC and Cornell University/Community and Regional Development Institute.

The core CGI curriculum includes required courses on building consensus, financial management, ethics, management, and the foundations of county government.  CGI instructors are NYSAC staff, county leaders, and Cornell faculty members who are experts in local government structure and issues. CGI courses are offered at NYSAC's Fall Seminar (September), Legislative Conference (February), and Finance School (May). Courses are also offered regionally throughout the year.
