BRIAN CASKEY COMPLETES ADVANCED LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROVIDED BY THE UNC SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT
Mills River Town Council Member Brian Caskey completed the Advanced Leadership Corps (ALC) training offered annually to county and municipal elected officials by the School of Government at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
ALC is a weeklong program designed by the School’s Center for Public Leadership and Governance to help elected officials understand the broader challenges of governing in today’s environment, to enable them to build their personal leadership abilities, and to give them an opportunity to learn how to lead and act collaboratively. More than 80 municipal and county elected officials from across North Carolina have completed this selective program since its inception, and this year, the School will celebrate the program’s 100th graduate.
Brian Caskey said, "This course was tremendously useful for me, from both a personal and professional standpoint. It will make me a better listener, a better speaker, and a better leader. The small breakout groups, in particular, were incredibly helpful as we interacted with colleagues from around the state with varying degrees of public experience. I would encourage any public servant with a desire to sharpen his or her skills to apply to the Advanced Leadership Corps."
Generous financial support from Prudential Financial allows elected officials from across the state to attend with only modest cost to the local unit of government.
