Lifelong Learning Leadership
Luncheon Continues to Inspire
Lt. Col. (Retired) Waldo Waldman
Teaches Commissioners to
Never Fly Solo
For the third consecutive year, ACCG
hosted the Lifelong Learning Leadership
Luncheon during the opening day of the
Annual Conference. County officials who
completed both core and specialty track
requirements in the ACCG Lifelong Learning
Academy were recognized for their achievements. UGA vice president for public service
and outreach, Dr. Jennifer Frum, attended
the luncheon and offered her congratulatory
remarks to the training graduates before the
certificate presentation.
Following the certificate presentation, conference attendees were motivated by Lt. Col.
(retired) Waldo Waldman and encouraged to
never fly solo. Waldman, a former U.S. Air
Force fighter pilot, emphasized the importance of entrusting your wingmen (county

staff) to accomplish the overall mission.
"Be a commander, not a demander," stated
Waldman when discussing the importance
of being a leader that empowers their team.
Each member of the county government team,
from a county chairman to the manager or
administrator and members of the parks and
recreation staff, plays an integral role in
achieving the county's overall success. It is
important for county commissioners, as the
elected leaders of the county and captains of
their local government squadrons, to rely on
their wingmen to do their part in accomplishing the overall mission.
ACCG Board of Managers Appoints
Dave Wills as Executive Director
One hallmark of this year's conference was
the Board of Managers' unanimous decision to
approve Dave Wills as the association's new
executive director during a meeting held as
part of the Annual Conference.
According to ACCG President and Harris
County Chairman Harry Lange, "Dave has

shown his deep commitment to engaging
the ACCG Board of Managers and staff in
his management of the association." Lange
further noted, "His laser sharp focus on providing the very best service to our membership will serve us well in the years to come.
He has our full support and we are excited
about his vision."
Wills is well known and respected among
Georgia's county officials. He joined ACCG in
January 2009 as the association's Government
Relations Manager, putting his experience as
a county official to work helping counties with
technical and professional assistance on a
wide range of issues. Wills served for 14 years
on the Webster County Commission, including
12 years as chairman. In this capacity, he also
served on the ACCG Board of Managers, Lower
Chattahoochee Soil and Water Conservation
District, the Middle Flint Regional Development
Center Board of Directors and the Middle Flint
E-911 Authority Board of Directors, among
others. Prior to his involvement in public
service, he was a self-employed farmer. He
