Mayor Roy Gold was elected Chair of the 2012 National League of Cities Leadership Training Council. Mayor Gold served as the past Vice-Chair of the 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 (LTI) and to serve as a vehicle for the National League of Cities leadership positions. Mayor Gold earned the “Gold: Leadership Ambassador” level Certificate of Achievement from the Leadership Training Institute in 2005.
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.
“I’ve found the training I received from LTI in core leadership skills to have been very beneficial to me in my role as Commissioner, Vice-Mayor, and Mayor,” said Mayor Gold. “As the Chair of the Leadership Training Council, I’m excited to have the opportunity to influence the development of our future leaders.”
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.
