The North Carolina League of Municipalities (NCLM) will sponsor a one-day orientation session for new mayors following the 2017 municipal elections.  These orientation sessions will include staff from NCLM and faculty from the UNC School of Government and is designed to help first-time mayors understand the nature of their role before they walk into that first challenging meeting as the presiding officer.

Please note, this session is not a substitute for the more comprehensive Essentials of Municipal Government course sponsored by the League and the School of Government. It will supplement those programs by giving mayors immediate help as they prepare to assume office and meet new challenges.
