New Leadership Program for Staff in State Government Now Accepting Applications
The Southern Office of The Council of State Governments (CSG) is excited to announce the Staff Academy for Governmental Excellence (SAGE), a new professional leadership development program for the legislative, judicial, executive and agency staff serving Southern state governments.
The inaugural program will convene November 11-14, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia.
Full scholarships will be provided to those selected, covering the cost of tuition, travel, lodging and meals.
Government staff work daily and diligently, often behind the scenes, to fulfill their duties to support the myriad functions of state government. While elected and appointed officials may leave their post at the end of a term, many staff work in service of their states for the duration of their career. By shaping staff leaders, SAGE ultimately aims to provide the public with more effective state governments.
