As Chair of the Leadership Training Council, Mayor Roy Gold took part in the National League of Cities’ Ambassador Program kick-off this Spring. The program was created to allow experienced elected and appointed officials to share their experiences with the next wave of city leaders.
By serving as an NLC Ambassador, Gold, along with other NLC members, helped new members avoid potential obstacles that can come with holding public office; discussed creative solutions to common issues; worked with NLC staff to ensure an engaged membership; and shared the value and importance NLC has had on their tenure.
"I am so thankful for the sage advice I received from experienced leaders when I first started as an elected official,” Gold said. “Public service is all about giving back and I am honored to do so.”
Currently, 46 NLC Ambassadors are participating in the program representing cities of all sizes throughout the country.
Led by the NLC Board Membership Committee, the Ambassador Team is comprised of volunteers who offer their valuable skills, perspectives, and love of NLC to become more involved and to connect with new and prospective member city officials.
