About the Local Elected Leaders Academy
Effective government is critical in this "new economy." Public officials must be ready to lead strategically, think creatively, and act collaboratively in order to deal with today's serious governing challenges.
The Local Elected Leaders Academy, a partnership with the School of Government at UNC-Chapel Hill, NC Association of County Commissioners, and the NC League of Municipalities, offers local elected officials the knowledge and skills needed to lead and govern their communities in these challenging times.
The Local Elected Leaders Academy offers scholarships to municipal and county elected officials to attend School of Government sponsored programs, workshops, and courses. Information about the scholarship application process is found at the individual course registration site.
Our generous donors include Food Lion, Prudential Financial, Local Government Federal Credit Union, Progress Energy, and Freese & Nichols.
