The NC Local Government Budget Association (NCLGBA) is excited to announce the opening of our annual Conference Scholarship Program for current Masters’ program Public Administration and Public Policy students. The scholarship program provides an opportunity for deserving students to attend either the summer or winter annual conference.
One of the many benefits to students who attend the conference is the potential to network with more than 100 local government officials. Students will also hear from an excellent slate of presenters about a variety of issues and opportunities that North Carolina local governments are dealing with right now. The Summer 2013 conference: Learn, Connect, Succeed, will feature presentations from internationally‐known philosopher Tom Morris and current president of the American Planning Association, Mitchell Silver.
Universities in North Carolina have partnered with the NCLGBA in the past to promote this scholarship program. Faculty and staff are encouraged to pass along the application form to their students (click here for the application).
Encouraging them to participate in associations like ours is an excellent way to develop professionalism and continue their education throughout their careers.
NCLGBA’s Summer 2013 conference is July 10‐12th at Shell Island Resort in
Wrightsville Beach. The Winter 2013 conference will be at The Grove Park Inn in
Asheville in early December.
The deadline for applications is April 30th. Winners will be announced May 10th.
Questions should be directed to Lesley Reder, NCLGBA Second Vice-President, by calling 704-920-5263, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
