MAYOR ELAINE WALKER TO HELP LEAD NATIONAL LEADERSHIP
TRAINING ADVISORY COUNCIL
Bowling Green, KY? Mayor Elaine Walker of Bowling Green has again been appointed a member of the Leadership Training Advisory Council of the National League of Cities (NLC) for 2007.
Mayor Walker?s appointment was announced today by NLC Executive Director Don Borut. ?As our country continues to grow and change, America?s cities and towns, and their elected officials, are facing new and varied challenges.? said Borut. ?The members of the Leadership Training Advisory Council will offer invaluable contributions as we move forward in the year ahead.?
The Leadership Training Council provides guidance and direction to NLC?s Leadership Training Institute, which offers seminars to local elected officials presented by prominent experts on a range of issues affecting municipal governments.
?We applaud the considerable contributions that our mayors, council and commission members make in their local communities.

When some of them step up to serve on our statewide board of directors and, often on steering committees representing Kentucky on a national scale, we are awestruck at their commitment,? said Sylvia L. Lovely, executive director/CEO of the Kentucky League of Cities.

As part of the NLC mission to create stronger communities, the Leadership Training Institute provides local city officials with professional development opportunities to assist them in promoting positive change and innovation within their local communities.
