The National League of Cities promotes excellence in municipal leadership through high quality education and training seminars for local elected officials. Through numerous professional development opportunities, local leaders learn practical leadership skills, abilities and strategies to lead change and innovation in their cities and towns.
Join renowned leaders, authors and scholars as you engage in a unique, reflective program that will help guide your work and leadership in local government. Insightful learning experiences will provide you the opportunity to reflect, recognize and appreciate what you can do to enhance your success as a municipal leader.
The National League of Cities developed the Certificate of Achievement in Leadership Program in an effort to recognize and acknowledge excellence in local government leadership. Participation in this program will allow you to organize your professional development around the critical skills necessary for excellence in leadership. By attending leadership seminars at NLC annual conferences, Regional Programs and the Leadership Summit members attain credits toward the Certificate of Achievement in Leadership Program.
In honor of council member Michael Lynch, this scholarship provides $2,500 to an NLC member for registration and travel expenses for the annual Leadership Summit. All elected or appointed officials from NLC Member Cities are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
