New and renewal memberships are being received for 2014-15.
Please take a moment to read the attached information; become a member of this innovative organization for the first time, or renew your ongoing membership and continue your participation! Be sure to encourage your co-workers and colleagues to update their registration in the next few weeks as well.
The NCLGBA’s main goals and benefits include:
Strengthening communications and provide opportunities for professional growth and development through the exchange of ideas. For example, the NCLGBA’s website offers an analysis round-up, economic updates, relevant articles, and a Career Gateway where members can post and learn about career opportunities
Investigating, studying, discussing, and recommending innovation in the application of budget and evaluation methods. For example, membership includes access to the NCLGBA ListServ where local government employees can share and request information from municipalities and counties across the state
Providing training and education programs through our events and meetings. For example, the NCLGBA hosts two state-wide conferences annually (discounted rate for members) and offers the North Carolina Budget & Evaluation Officer certification program
Whether you are a city or county manager, budget or finance director, budget and management analyst, financial administrator, or serving in an operating department with budget and evaluation responsibilities, the NCLGBA may offer significant value to your municipality, county, or North Carolina authority or cooperative. The cost of NCLGBA membership remains only $50 for FY2014-2015.
Additional information regarding the organization, including conference announcements and the budget and evaluation officer certification, can be found on the Association’s Web site – www.NCLGBA.org.
