Human Services Basics: What Every County Commissioner Should Know
March 19, 2013
March 19, 2013: Asheville NC -- The NC Arboretum
This program is designed to offer newly-elected county commissioners the opportunity to learn more about the three primary county human services program areas: (1) public health, (2) social services, and (3) mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disabilities. For each of these three areas, School of Government faculty members will explore the following questions:
- What do the local agencies do?
- How are the local agencies organized and governed?
- What are the county commissioners’ roles with respect to these agencies and services?
The program is designed with newly-elected county commissioners in mind, but experienced commissioners are encouraged to attend as well.
