Review for Local Government Academy, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & Have had the pleasure of serving on their Board, volunteering to teach classes and organize classes and receiving the benefits of having a newly elected official attend the Newly Elected Officials Course.
