In my work with municipal governments across the western half of the state, education of officials, both elected and appointed, on the cruicial nature of their roles and their impact on the health of the region's business community was imperative. After a brief investigation into LGA's objectives and processes, there was no other choice for our organization but to become both a Board member and a major sponsor. The role that LGA plays in creating nonpolitical inroads into effective governance of the region continues to be a tremendous asset, with all upside potential for growth and sustained contributions to the region's overall health.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The NEOC (Newly Elected Officials Course) in that it provides an eye-opener crash course that allows neophytes to hit the ground running...a clear winner for community residents and businesses.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The separation of politics from governance, an icnredible feat equal in stature to separation of church and state.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredibly caring and committed professionals with an unsurpassed grasp of regional issues and an array of learning opportunities for those seeking to resolve those issues.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to meet the real demand for educational programs and services.

The most comprehensive "one stop shop" to help newly elected officials to prepare for their new civic responsibilities in a responsible and professional manner.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

assisting a newly elected member of our governing body to be quickly acclimated and prepared to deal a full agenda from day one.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to do everything they are doing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to meet so many people with a passion for excellence in local government.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, personal, helpful and made everything so enjoyable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

greatly improve the quality of life of every resident in western Pennsylvania through improved local government management.

Ways to make it better...

I would have done more to prepare.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding steady and reliable sources of funding to further pursue the organization's mission.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it needs improved funding to recruit and retain their staff.

Making the decision and commitment to be a public servant can be intimidating. The LGA offers courses and forums to help educate newly elected officials so they can learn what to expect and what will be expecrted of them to be an effective government official. The LGA promotes good government and is a great resource in our region.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The professionalism and commitment of the LGA staff. Well run organization!
