Review for Local Government Academy, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.

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.

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Board Member & I feel like the guy in the electric shaver commercial. "I tried the Local Government Academy, and I liked it so much I became the Board Chairman!".
