Cecil County Executive Tari Moore has been selected by the National Association of Counties (NACo) to be one of the 25 county leaders from across the United States to attended the County Leadership Institute in Washington, D.C. in June.  The institute is offered in partnership with Cambridge Leadership Associates.

Moore was nominated by Maryland Association of Counties’ Executive Director, Michael Sanderson, as

“an official with a commitment to developing collaborative and innovative solutions to local issues.”

From the Cecil Whig article,

“I am very excited about attending the leadership institute,” Moore said Wednesday afternoon. “It’s an honor to represent Maryland and I’m looking forward to meeting other leaders and sharing ideas that I will bring back home.”

The Cecil County press release notes

The Institute, now in its eleventh year, has graduated nearly 250 members from 45 states and 172 counties across the country.  Known for enhancing the capacity of county officials to identify and implement innovative solutions to the complex challenges facing county government in the 21st century, this year’s program will focus closely on the demands of personal leadership in a new era of government, one characterized as a “permanent crisis” by Cambridge Leadership co-founder Marty Linsky.

“The local elected officials who participate in the County Leadership Institute get tools, ideas, and perspectives they can’t get anywhere else,” said Karon Harden, Director of Professional Development, Education & Training at NACo.  “These county leaders not only discuss the core principles of public service leadership with prominent experts, they also collaborate intensively with each other to develop new ways to attack real-life issues of importance to the citizens of their counties.”
