Scholarships Still Available! Register Now for NACo’s High Performance Leadership Academy

The NACo High Performance Leadership Academy is an online 12-week program that empowers frontline county government professionals with the most fundamental leadership skills to deliver results for counties and communities. The Academy has now graduated over 780 county leaders from 48 states.

More than 490 counties have enrolled emerging and existing leaders since the launch of the program last year, with incredible feedback and results. In fact, the positive feedback and demand for this NACo program has been truly unprecedented; to the point that NACo now has four planned starts for next year. The next cohort starts in January 2020 and is accepting applicants now!

To enroll visit the NACo High Performance Leadership Academy webpage. The first person enrolled from each NACo member county receives a $1,500 scholarship! This means the first person from each county costs only $495 and everyone enrolled thereafter will receive a $300 scholarship making their cost only $1,695!

There are still (17) $1,500 First Participant Scholarships available for Maryland for the January cohort.  There are also $300 Subsequent Scholarships available for counties that have already used their $1,500 Scholarship.
