Steele, Schultz receive leadership award
The award was presented by the North Dakota League of Cities.
David Steele, council member for the city of Jamestown, and Kaye Schultz, auditor for the city of Streeter, recently received the Leadership Training Program Visionary Award from the North Dakota League of Cities.
"The program takes commitment," said Jennifer Makelky, communications and training manager for the North Dakota League of Cities. "Each city leader's investment positively impacts the future of their community."
The North Dakota League of Cities' Leadership Training Program recognizes city leaders for their dedication, time and commitment to making their communities better places to live. Award recipients receive credits in the Leadership Training Program by attending conferences and training events sponsored by the NDLC.
Nine LTP participants were recognized for achieving the first level, or "Innovator" award (30 hours of training), 13 city leaders achieved the "Visionary" award (60 hours of training), eight individuals achieved the "Leader" award (100 hours of training), and four individuals reached the "110%" award, which requires 200 hours of training.
The NDLC provides service, advocacy, leadership, education, and support for North Dakota’s 355 incorporated cities. The LTP is the cornerstone of the NDLC’s commitment to providing city officials with the tools they need to govern effectively.
