ALACHUA COUNTY - Alachua County invites citizens to take part in the Alachua County Civic Education SerieS (ACCESS), a behind-the-scenes look at Alachua County Government.

Participants will learn about local government programs and issues, many resulting from global, national or state trends.

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of County government.

This is the 8th year Alachua County has offered the ACCESS Program.  Each graduating class produces a group of citizens that is equipped to become engaged in ways that help local government become more vibrant and representative of the needs of its citizenry.

ACCESS begins March 17, 2008 and runs for seven sessions.

ACCESS is free but space is limited. Please register by February 29, 2007. Visit the ACCESS webpage for a schedule and more information.  Citizens can Register Online or register by phone at (352) 374-5219.
