Buncombe County Commissioner Terri Wells successfully completed the Advanced Leadership Corps (ALC) training offered annually to select local elected officials by the School of Government at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

ALC is an intensive leadership development program designed by the School’s Center for Public Leadership and Governance. The weeklong residential program is a dynamic experience that helps participants learn about their own leadership styles, inspire others to work toward a shared vision, and gain insights into how to work together to build better relationships and achieve far-reaching results. More than 185 local elected leaders from across North Carolina have completed this selective program since its inception.

“It was an honor to be selected to participate in this program with elected leaders from across our state including county commissioners, town council, and school board members,” said Wells.  “It was a valuable opportunity to build relationships and learn about challenges and successes from others, and what gave me tremendous hope for our state was the certainty that everyone in that class, no matter their elected position or political background, truly cared about their communities and wanted to ensure a thriving future. It takes us working together to accomplish important goals for our communities across our state to ensure a stronger future for all North Carolinians.”

Generous financial support from North Carolina Association of County Commissioners allows elected officials from across the state to attend with only modest cost to the local unit of government.
