Fairfax County Employees Graduate from Institute for Regional Excellence

 

Six Fairfax County employees graduated from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ Institute for Regional Excellence at a ceremony on Friday, Sept. 10, at The George Washington University’s Marvin Center. They are Kristen Cigler, Arthur Culbertson, Holly Franz, Clare Kiley, Gail Kohn and Lorraine Peck.

The council established the institute in 2001 to assist local jurisdictions in providing regional executive development opportunities to managers and senior staff. The Regional Executive Leadership Program aims to develop leadership and understanding of regional issues and approaches, enhance management skills and increase exposure to innovation in local government. Fairfax County has had the highest number of participants (27 out of 100), who are experienced local government leaders, of all participating jurisdictions since the program’s inception.

In partnership with The George Washington University, the MWCOG is the first regional council in the nation to be accredited by the National Certified Public Managers Consortium. Participants in the Regional Executive Development Program come from diverse backgrounds and several member jurisdictions.

Upon successful completion of the 12-month program, graduates receive a certificate from The George Washington University and are designated as Certified Public Managers. The main objectives of the program are to:
• Provide the theoretical and intellectual foundations of leadership and management in the public sector and expose participants to “state-of-the-art” practices in public administration.
• Examine and prepare participants for the special challenges and responsibilities in leading large, complex public organizations.
• Increase understanding of metropolitan-wide issues as well as interdependencies among area local governments.
• Provide an opportunity to share problems, develop joint solutions and establish networks among area jurisdiction managers.
