Local Government Leadership Program
The purpose of the Local Government Leadership Program (LGLP) is to help local government officials enhance their leadership knowledge and skills so they can fulfill their leadership roles more effectively.
LGLP provides elected and senior-level government officials an opportunity to explore ideas and strategies to improve the delivery of government services to Tennesseans. This experience will challenge local government leaders to examine: (1) themselves, their organizations and policy making processes; (2) the challenges of leadership in a public sector environment; and (3) the role of leaders in today’s communities.
Participants in LGLP come from municipal and county governments. Applicants are nominated by their peers, LGLP alumni, and the staff of the Institute for Public Service. Each class has a mix of elected and appointed officials from cities and counties of all sizes in all three grand divisions of the state.
