Language Collaboration for County Officials (LCCO)


CTAS has partnered with the Tennessee Language Center (TLC), an agency of the Institute for Public Service, to provide a language services program for county officials - the Language Collaborative for County Officials. This program provides FREE language services to county officials across Tennessee. CTAS will sponsor county officials' participation in or use of language services and classes offered by our sister agency, TLC.
