Every day, local government touches the lives of North Carolinians and provides the services essential for functional communities, growing businesses, and healthy families. It is local government that supplies water to our faucets, collects our trash, moves traffic through our downtowns, and cuts the grass in our parks and ball fields. It is also local government that delivers care and counseling to those facing difficult times and responds with qualified personnel to life’s emergencies.
Generously Supported by the North Carolina City and County Management Association, the 2014 Local Government Seminar will be held July 28 and 29, 2014 in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Participants in this seminar will learn first-hand the role of local government in North Carolina and then explore pedagogical strategies for teaching young people about how local government in North Carolina works. Highlights of the seminar will include: meeting with elected and appointed local government officials and staff, “behind-the-scenes” field trips to various city and county facilities, and much more!
