Essentials of County Government is a dynamic orientation program for newly elected county commissioners. This program offers invaluable resources for new commissioners looking to maximize their leadership during their first months of service. The two-day program gives the new elected information about their legal, ethical and governing responsibilities.
New commissioners benefit by networking with other newly elected officials and interacting with faculty from the School of Government and professional staff from the NC Association of County Commissioners.
New commissioners are encouraged to come with their county managers and veteran board members as the orientation serves as a useful refresher and a way for boards to translate what they learn into practice back “home.”

Dr. Jim Johnson, a national expert on the social and economic changes facing North Carolina, will introduce participants to a competitive toolkit of knowledge, skills and cultural competencies required to survive, thrive and prosper in an ever changing, agile and flexible global business environment.
This workshop is designed for all veteran county and city elected officials and is an option for those veteran county officials who attend Essentials of County Government. While their newly elected board members are getting the basics on day one, veteran county leaders can join their colleagues on site for an engaging and provocative look at how to make counties competitive in a global market.
Elected officials who attend this workshop will earn 6 workshop credits toward recognition in the Local Elected Leaders Academy. Scholarships are available through the UNC School of Government.
