LELA Educational Opportunities

  1. Working Effectively with Citizen Advisory Boards and Committees

    October 25, 2019, All Day @ Knapp Sanders Building

    One of the most common and substantive ways citizen participation in local government occurs is through service on appointed advisory boards (CABs) (also sometimes called committees, commissions or task forces). While some CABs are statutorily mandated, most are created at the discretion of governing boards in order to provide community input for various local government functions. This one-day workshop explores promising practices of non-mandated, local government citizen advisory boards. Participants will learn about important nuts-and-bolts, including clarifying roles and expectations; recruiting, appointing, and training volunteers; staffing and managing committee work; and evaluating CAB effectiveness.

  2. Fiduciary Responsibilities for Local Elected Officials

    October 29, 2019, All Day @ Eastern Carolina Council of Governments

    Local elected officials are stewards of the public trust. They are responsible for guiding multi-million dollar county and municipal corporations that depend on numerous sources of revenues and that have multiple layers of policy and management responsibilities. Understanding their financial fiduciary responsibilities is one of their most important duties. This workshop will focus on understanding and responding to the annual audit, maintaining adequate oversight of fund balance including its limitations and flexibility, and knowing the significance of the various communications and reporting requirements of the Local Government Commission. Attendees will learn from real-life examples of internal control challenges and other significant audit findings, and will see how board involvement can help overcome these challenges in ways that secure the local units’ financial stability. Relationships between the state and local governments in managing public funds will be explored.

  3. Local Government Emergency Management: 'When Disaster Strikes, Are You Ready?'

    October 29, 2019, 10:00 AM - 3:15 PM @ Henderson County Emergency Services

    From wildfires to ice storms to mudslides to yes, even hurricanes, western North Carolina has experienced a myriad of natural disasters. This workshop will provide information on local government legal authorities during an emergency event, disaster funding sources including the FEMA reimbursement process, and disaster preparedness best practices such as prepositioning contracts consistent with federal procurement requirements. These topics are relevant for all local government elected officials and personnel who may be involved in assisting their community to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster when, not if, the next one strikes. This workshop will be taught by Norma Houston from the UNC School of Government.
