State and Local Leaders Program III

This program is a repeat of the program that visited Birmingham, Alabama in 1998. It once again brought local administrators, who are having more power devolved to them in the federalizing Europe and in a self governing Northern Ireland, to meet with peers and learn new skills and techniques for management and planning. They analyzed the American approach to common issues, especially in the areas of planning and the environment. The group visited Austin, Texas, and met with elected local representatives and government officials, including the Governors legislative director and senior staff.
