The institute, the release notes, “addresses the challenges and directs the potential of local elected officials to forge positive, sustained change in their communities.”
“Participants gain a broad perspective about themselves as leaders, about the issues facing their communities, and about how to engage broad networks of interested parties to develop solutions to difficult challenges facing their communities,” the release states.
The program is designated for elected officials with at least three years of experience at the policy level in county government. The Tennessee County Services Association nominated her. Each state can pick only candidate, but no more than 30 are selected nation-wide to participate.
