PARKLAND, FLA - Former Mayor of Parkland and current Broward Commissioner Michael Udine was one of 38 county commissioners to receive a Certified County Commissioner designation from the Florida Counties Foundation (FCF) during an awards ceremony held at the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) Annual Conference in Orange County, Florida.

“I greatly appreciate the educational offerings presented by the Florida Association of Counties and the Florida Counties Foundation,” said Udine. “It is my priority to be informed and engaged on the issues affecting Broward County residents. Completing the Certified County Commissioner program has been an invaluable learning experience to better serve my constituents.”

Launched in 1996, the Certified County Commissioner Program is a voluntary program of study designed for county commissioners to learn information and enhance skills relevant to their duties and responsibilities through a series of courses totaling 45 hours.  Since the inception of the program, a total of 459 Florida commissioners have received the CCC designation.
