No Brunswick County taxpayer funds are paying for any part of my participation in Leadership North Carolina.
Each year, through a rigorous selection process, LNC chooses a class of established and emerging leaders from across the state to participate in its acclaimed program. Leadership North Carolina’s Class 30 is made up of top leaders from the government, business, nonprofit, and education sectors.
Over the course of six two-and-a-half day sessions Class 30 participants will learn about issues critical to the state through discussions with top officials and professionals, field trips, and experiential learning activities. LNC’s sessions focus on five key areas: economic development, education, environment, government, and health and human services. Through LNC’s program, participants gain new insight into North Carolina’s strengths and challenges and explore opportunities for how they will improve and empower their communities and the state as a whole.
LNC sessions are held around the state, highlighting the social, geographic, and economic diversity of North Carolina. The members of Class 30 gathered in Boone last week for their Orientation session at Appalachian State University. The group will meet in Raleigh in November for the Government session and in Greensboro for the December Education session. The remaining sessions for LNC Class 30 will be held in Charlotte, Wilmington, and Asheville.
Leadership North Carolina’s mission is to inform, develop, and engage committed leaders by broadening their understanding of and involvement in issues and opportunities facing North Carolina. The Leadership North Carolina Program cultivates a network of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who share a deep commitment to their state. There are more than 1300 graduates of the program whose continued ties to LNC and to one another provide them with rich opportunities for serving North Carolina.
