Piedmont Regional Clerks Academy

Lumber River Council of Governments hosts the Piedmont Regional Clerks Academy

PEMBROKE - Twenty county and municipal clerks attended the North Carolina Association of County Clerks Piedmont Regional IIMC Academy October 1, the first ever to be hosted by a Council of Governments.

The event was sponsored by the School of Government and held at the Lumber River Council of Governments based in Pembroke, NC.

Attendees received information on current legislative issues from State Representative Garland Pierce (District 48), learned the role a Council of Governments plays in support of counties and municipalities and were provided updates on recently enacted laws that impact clerks.

Two panel discussions and sessions on effective health and wellness programs, the daily challenges of economic and workforce development and suggestions on creative budgeting in difficult financial times rounded out the day-long academy.

The regional event was organized by Lumber River Council of Governments Clerk Gainer Cummings with support from Bladen County Clerk Sara West, Hoke County Clerk Linda Revels, Richmond County Clerk Marian Savage, Robeson County Clerk Tammy Freeman and Scotland County Clerk Ann Kurtzman.

The Lumber River Council of Governments serves as an administrative and service delivery arm for federal, state, regional and local programs of its member governments. The counties of Bladen, Hoke, Richmond, Robeson and Scotland, along with 27 municipalities within these counties, make up the current membership of the Lumber River Council of Governments. The agency is part of a system of 17 regional councils covering the entire state of North Carolina.
