CSG South Announces 2023 SAGE Class

CSG South has released its 2023 Staff Academy for Governmental Excellence (SAGE) Class!

The nation’s only regionally focused leadership development program for state government staff, SAGE is rooted in CSG South’s proud legacy of providing exemplary leadership training to elected and appointed state officials. 

In addition to developing their personal and professional leadership skills, participants can build a network of peers across the Southern region. By shaping staff leaders, SAGE ultimately aims to provide the public with more effective state governments.
