“Freeborn County and counties across the country are facing increasingly complex challenges,” Shoff said. “I am hopeful the practical applications we discussed over the four days will help me become a more insightful and effective public servant.”

The County Leadership Institute program curriculum was developed specifically for the National Association of Counties by Cambridge Leadership Associates co-founder Marty Linsky who has taught at Harvard’s Kennedy School for more than 25 years.
