Leading for Results - LGFCU Fellows

This course is sponsored by Local Government Federal Credit Union.

UPDATE: We have been monitoring efforts to keep people safe from the COVID-19 virus as governments, universities, and businesses prepare to reopen. After much consideration, we have decided it is not possible for us to achieve our learning objectives and deliver the same invaluable and impactful experience that previous Fellows had the opportunity to receive given the current situation and restrictions this fall. We will continue to monitor the situation and potentially offer a spring cohort if conditions change.  The application will re-open when we are able to have a program again. Thank you for understanding the situation. We encourage you to sign up to receive a notification when the application reopens for the next offering. 

The Leading for Results program develops leadership skills for local government professionals.  The program meets for two one-week sessions with cohorts of 25 participants.  The intensive two-week program, held at the UNC School of Government in Chapel Hill, aims to enhance personal as well as organizational leadership skills.  Participants complete the program with a deeper understanding of their individual leadership strengths, skills of improving their organizations, and a renewed passion for public service.  

Individuals admitted to this program will attend as Local Government Federal Credit Union (LGFCU) Fellows.   LGFCU Fellows are select group of individuals who represent the future of North Carolina local government leadership. LGFCU Fellows participate tuition free in the Leading for Results course, receive individual coaching, and can attend alumni events.
