2017 Winter Conference: Washington Duke – Coming soon so register now!

2017 Winter Conference: Washington Duke Inn – Durham, NC

The 2017 NCLGBA Winter Conference is a little over two months away! We are looking forward to kicking things off with a pre-conference workshop on Tax and Fee Compliance from Indiana University. Our keynote speaker is Sreedhari Desai, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior from the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. CIGNA, a long-time Presenting Sponsor, will present on Wellness Workplace Programs. We’ll hear from dynamic speakers like Lee Worsley, Executive Director of the Triangle J Council of Governments and Melody Warnick, author of “This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are”. Also planned are sessions on the topics of budget transparency technology tools, strategic planning and performance management.

The 45 member planning committee submitted so many great ideas that the agenda is already shaping up with an engaging slate of sessions – we just need your presence in Durham to make this conference another success!
