Government leaders descend on Winston-Salem for seminar

City and county officials from across North Carolina will gather in Winston-Salem this week for the 2019 NCCCMA Winter Seminar.

WithersRavenel is a gold sponsor for the much-anticipated event which brings the state’s local leaders together. The seminar runs Feb. 6-8, with speakers, workshops and meetings that blend learning and government business with opportunities for networking and fellowship.

Highlights include Wednesday’s keynote address from Maurice Jones, the former City Manager in Charlottesville, Virginia and current Chapel Hill manager. Jones will offer a timely, inside look at the challenges that communities face with the legacy of Confederate monuments.

On Thursday morning, an alumni breakfast will be available for several North Carolina universities: Appalachian State, East Carolina, N.C. State, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington and Western Carolina.

Also, attendees will be able to visit the exhibitor area noon-7 p.m. Wednesday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m Thursday, and 8-11 a.m. Friday.

“WithersRavenel is proud to be a sponsor of this important event,” said Eddie Staley, Vice President of Local Government Business Development.

The North Carolina City and County Management Association (NCCCMA) is the professional association for city and county managers and assistant managers from counties and municipalities throughout North Carolina. One of its primary purposes for existing is to improve the quality of local government. NCCCMA holds two large seminars annually, one in the summer and one in the winter.
