Leadership & Local Government

Our local government information and education network provides educational opportunities designed to specifically address current issues that many local governments encounter, with particular emphasis on policymaking and leadership. Our programs are timely, convenient, interactive, and cost effective. These programs are delivered both in person through technology-facilitated solutions.
