The National League of Cities’ Leadership Training Institute recently recognized Coral Springs Commissioner Roy Gold with a Gold Certificate of Achievement in Leadership. Commissioner Gold was one of 15 recipients to receive this special recognition.
More than 340 city leaders and elected officials gathered for the Leadership Training Institute Leadership Luncheon on Sunday, March 15, 2009. The luncheon highlighted the accomplishments of NLC members who have completed the requirements for Certificates of Achievement in Leadership. These requirements are centered around the five core competencies: Cornerstone, Competent Practitioner, Communicator, Collaborator and Catalyst.
"When I first experienced the courses available to elected officials I was so impressed with the Leadership Training program," Gold said.
Each year, the Leadership Training Institute offers a variety of personal leadership development and growth seminar opportunities at both of NLC's annual conferences, the annual Leadership Summit and at regional training programs.
In order to receive the certificate, NLC members must complete a minimum of three courses in all five core competency areas for a total of 50 credits, and serve in a state or regional leadership role outside of their elected position.
"Achieving this level has been an honor and a great benefit to helping me better serve our citizens and our community," Gold added.
