NC Certified Public Manager Program Graduation

Monday, October 3, 2016 - 10:30am

Without strong leadership, few organizations are successful. This rule certainly holds true for NC state and local government organizations.

For the past sixteen months, select managers from across North Carolina state and local government organizations have worked to improve their skills and become better leaders through participation in the Certified Public Manager® Program (CPM).

Dena Wilkins graduated as a Certified Public Manager® on October 3rd at 2 p.m. at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh, NC. 

The Certified Public Manager® Program is intended to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and productivity of NC state and local government organizations by improving the leadership abilities of employees in management positions.   Improving the skills of managers will carry through to all employees and help government organizations better serve our clients and citizens across North Carolina.  To complete this program, Dena completed 300 hours of course work and a service delivery improvement project within her own organization. 

This is the thirty-ninth class to complete the program since it began in 1981.   The Certified Public Manager® designation is granted by authority of the 41-state National Certified Public Manager® Consortium, which has reviewed and accredited the NC Certified Public Manager® Program.
