Carver County Elected Leaders (CCL) builds and maintains a partnership of governing units in Carver County to support greater efficiencies and leadership in public service that benefit citizens and taxpayers and all governing agencies within Carver County through enhanced communication, collaboration of services and sharing of resources, experiences and knowledge.
The Carver County Elected Leaders Program was originally started through a partnership between Carver County and Ridgeview Medical Center. It was facilitated by the University of Minnesota's Extension Service with the focus being on Leadership Development. In 2007, discussions occurred between Carver County and the program design team to review and revitalize the program. The County saw the value in the Leadership Development component but also wanted to use this group as a vehicle for more collaboration. The Association of Carver County Elected Leaders (ACCEL) was formed in 2008 with the vision of working together to make all Carver County communities better places to live, work and play. Later ACCEL was renamed to Carver County Leaders (CCL) to be more inclusive of appointed officials.
The Association consists of the following members: Carver County; the cities of Carver, Chanhassen, Chaska, Cologne, Hamburg, Mayer, New Germany, Norwood Young America, Victoria, Waconia, and Watertown; the townships of Benton, Camden, Dahlgren, Hancock, Hollywood, Laketown, San Francisco, Waconia, Watertown, and Young America; Soil and Water Conservation District; and the school districts of 108, 110, 111 and 112. Members of the Carver County legislative delegation and Metropolitan Council are also invited to attend meetings.
