Fiscal Training for Local Government Elected Officials

LGC staff has developed fiscal training for local government board members on some of the key aspects of the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act.  Although this training is useful for anyone involved in a local government or public authority in North Carolina, it has been specifically developed for elected officials.  Please visit our Fiscal Training page for details.
