Commissioner Pipe Attends National Leadership Program

2015 NACo CLI Class

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Centre County Commissioner Michael Pipe has been named one of a select group of 25 leaders in county government from across the country to participate in the 12 program developed by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and Cambridge Leadership Associates.

The institute, held May 30 – June 4 in Washington, D.C., will press county officials to consider innovative approaches to address key issues facing their counties and constituents.

“The County Leadership Institute will provide a hands-on professional development experience that will help us accomplish our goals in Centre County,” said Commissioner Pipe. “This is a unique opportunity to learn from national experts and work with other county leaders as we strengthen our skills to tackle some of our greatest challenges including reforming our criminal justice system, increasing citizen engagement and making government more transparent.”

The program is designed to help county leaders further develop their approaches toward solving complex challenges. It provides tools to encourage innovation and creativity; resources for invigorating organizational culture; and best practices in effective communication, collaboration and decision-making.
