Rockingham County Commissioners' Chair Completes  


by UNC-School of Government


Reece Pyrtle, Rockingham County Board of Commissiones Chairman, 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.

Pyrtle said:  "I'm very grateful for this excellent learning experience to expand my knowledge base and leadership skills at UNC-School of Government.  This will certainly help me better work with colleagues as we serve Rockingham County citiens." 

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.
