US Postage PAID Permit 216 Chapel Hill NC T he Local Elected Leaders Academy—a partnership with the School of Government, the NC Association of County Commissioners (NCACC), and the NC League of Municipalities (NCLM)—is an advanced education and recognition program for county and municipal elected o*cials. Its programs help develop the strategic, creative, and collaborative skills needed to e+ectively lead and govern. In 2009, elected leaders began earning recognition credits based on hours of training. Recognition is given at three levels: Practitioner (48 hours), Master (66 hours), and Mentor (82 hours). At its annual conference in August 2011, the NC Association of County Commission- ers honored Jonathan Barfield Jr. of New Hanover County, who achieved Mentor level status, as well as Kevin Austin of Yadkin County, Gary D. Blevins of Wilkes County, Brenda Howerton of Durham County, and Judy Porter Poe of Ashe County, who reached the Master tier. Four additional com- missioners achieved the Practitioner level. The NC League of Municipalities recently recognized Elizabeth Johnson, commissioner for the Town of Morrisville, for achieving the Master tier. An additional 17 commissioners, council members, and mayors from across the state achieved the Practitioner level.

Lists of all o(cials who have achieved recognition are available at www.ncacc.org and www.nclm.org. .FOUPST.BTUFSTBOE1SBDUJUJPOFST)POPSFECZ-PDBM&MFDUFE-FBEFST"DBEFNZ
