Vice Mayor Roy Gold was selected to serve for the second year on the 2007 National League of Cities Leadership Training Council. The Principal Mission of the Leadership Training Council is to provide guidance and direction of the National League of Cities' Leadership Training Institute and to serve as a vehicle for the National League of Cities leadership positions. Council members identify leadership development needs along with the professional trainers and recognized experts skilled in conducting the Leadership Training Institute seminars held in conjunction with the annual NLC Conferences. The Leadership Training Council consists of elected and appointed officials from across the United States. Council members, appointed by the President of the National League of Cities, serve a one-year term. The Leadership Training Council meets three times a year, at both of NLC's annual conferences and at the annual Leadership Summit to be held in September. “I’m excited about the opportunity to have Vice Mayor Gold’s expertise and commitment as part of the NLC family, and look forward to working with him to shape the leadership development activities,” said Bart Peterson, president of NLC.
