Center for Florida Local Governmanet ExcellenceThe FCCMA Onsite Training Session Program has been one of the most successful methods of training provided by CFLGE. Past and Current FCCMA Presidents have been particularly interested in the success of this program and have advocated for localized training in government facilities.

The purpose of the Onsite Training Session Program is threefold: reduce travel training costs for local government participants, eliminate training facility overhead costs, and provide a forum for local government administrators and staff to obtain hands-on training on current and pending local government issues. Even though the purpose of these trainings is to reduce travel these trainings are open to everyone across the state.

All onsite training sessions are either a half-day session or full-day session with lunch included for both. For more information, please contact: Carol Russell ( from FCCMA.

Ethical Challenges Facing Local Governments in 2020
February 21, 2020, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Fort Pierce Yacht Club
700 N. Indian River Drive Fort Pierce
ICMA Practices: 1,3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 13

Program Summary:

In the last decade, the advent of social media and other technical advances has challenged local governments to effectively respond to evolving issues; all which have an ethical component that must be considered and defined. Building and sustaining a culture of ethics becomes even more important with the discretion employees must have to fulfill their ever changing public service duties. To define and discuss these ethical challenges, a distinguished and diverse panel of local government managers has been put together to provide an informative and interactive program for attendees. FCCMA members are encourage to register key staff members to attend this important program and to be prepared to contribute to this discussion.

Note: attendance will satisfy FCCMA’s annual 4 hour ethics training requirement.
