Deputy Mayor Campbell Receives NLC Leadership Training Honor

Tacoma, Wash. -- Deputy Mayor Marty Campbell was recognized by the National League of Cities for reaching the Silver level in its Certificate of Achievement in Leadership program. Sponsored by the National League of Cities, the award will be presented in Seattle at the annual Congress of Cities Conference in November.

Campbell is one of the fewer than 442 NLC members to have reached the Silver level in the Certificate of Achievement in Leadership program since its inception. To reach the Silver level, a local official must earn 36 credits encompassing all five core competency areas of the Certificate of Achievement in Leadership curriculum: Cornerstone, Competent Practitioner, Communicator, Collaborator and Catalyst.

Each training seminar addresses one or more of the core areas of municipal leadership, including personal leadership growth and development, effective governance, effective communications, skills in developing and promoting partnerships and managing change.

NLC is committed to strengthening and promoting the leadership capacity of our nation’s local elected officials. As part of the NLC mission to create stronger communities, its training program provides local officials with the professional development opportunities to assist them in promoting positive change and innovation within their communities. At the same time, seminars are designed to explore the nature and practice of local governmental leadership.

NLC’s Leadership Training Council established the Certificate of Achievement in Leadership program in 1999. The primary purpose the program is to recognize and acknowledge excellence in leadership by NLC members.
