The LGFCU Fellows Program: A new opportunity to build your organizational leadership
A select group of 50 individuals who represent the future of North Carolina local government leadership will be chosen as Local Government Federal Credit Union Fellows.

Fellows will participate in one of two course offerings in cohorts of 25.
This program is for individuals new to managing and leading in their organization, individuals transitioning from technical to managerial and leadership responsibilities, and/or high performers who aspire to take on more leadership responsibilities.
Applications for the Fellows program are encouraged from local government professionals who lead or seek to lead in their organizations, including managers and assistant managers, department heads and supervisors, assistants and directors, executives, and administrators.
