Registration Deadline &
Hotel Reservation Cutoff Date – June 24th
Come Celebrate our 25th Anniversary!
Join colleagues from across the state in celebrating a quarter century of NCLGBA professional development. Join us in honoring our past presidents, Jack Vogt, retired UNC School of Government professor, and other key people during the Thursday, July 17 luncheon. Plenary and concurrent sessions will include capital financing, Department of Revenue updates on the Tax and Tag program, and practical tips for how to streamline next year’s budget process. The speaker line up also includes UNC School of Government professor David Ammons speaking about performance management with the NCLGBA’s first president, Ellen Liston, who recently retired as deputy manager of Coral Springs, Florida.
Ethics Workshop Opens Conference
The Summer 2014 conference will kick off with ICMA’s Director of Ethics Martha Perego who will lead a workshop on ethics. With North Carolina roots – she was a budget intern in Durham in 1979-80 and University of North Carolina MPA alum – and decades of local government management experience, Martha will facilitate an interactive discussion of ethical leadership within the budgeting profession.
The NCLGBA will be offering one scholarship to the Summer NCLGBA conference, which includes registration and two nights hotel reservations. This opportunity will be open to any open to Masters of Public Administration students or first time conference attendees. Please share the news with colleagues and summer interns, and be on the lookout for the application to be posted to the listserv. For more information, contact Lesley Reder at RederL@concordnc.gov
