Fulton Commissioner Natalie Hall Selected for National County Leadership Institute

May 31, 2019

Fulton County District 4 Commissioner Natalie Hall is one of a select group of county leaders nationwide who will participate in the 16th Annual County Leadership Institute.

CLI a rigorous program developed by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and Cambridge Leadership Associates that equips county officials with practical leadership strategies as they explore innovative approaches to address key issues facing their counties and constituents.

CLI helps county leaders develop their approach toward solving complex challenges. It provides tools to encourage innovation and creativity; resources for invigorating organizational culture; and best practices in effective communication, collaboration and decision-making. This year’s program focuses on the demands of personal leadership in the modern era of government. As one of the selected participants, Commissioner Hall will participate in CLI in Washington, DC from June 9 through 13.

“I am honored to be among those selected for this program, and look forward to bringing back innovative ideas and approaches to serve my constituents and Fulton County residents countywide,” said Commissioner Hall.

Matthew Chase, NACo’s executive director, said, “County officials often address similar issues and can learn a great deal from one another. The County Leadership Institute fosters peer-to-peer learning and encourages common-sense solutions to challenges that counties and residents face every day.”

“My nomination of Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall for inclusion in the National Association of Counties’ (NACo) 2019 County Leadership Institute was predicated upon my observation of her commitment to learning as much as possible, as quickly as possible through the courses offered by the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG),” said ACCG Executive Director Dave Wills. “In addition to engaging in educational courses offered by ACCG, Commissioner Hall successfully advocated for the inclusion of Fulton County staff in educational courses. Her commitment to continued education and training confirmed for me that she would be a great candidate to participate in NACo’s County Leadership Institute.”

Commissioner Hall represents District 4, which is located in the heart of Fulton County and includes many of Atlanta’s most diverse and dynamic neighborhoods. Since joining the Board of Commissioners in 2017, Commissioner Hall has focused on matters of health, behavioral health, seniors and youth, and civic engagement, among other key issues. She is actively engaged in the National Association of Counties and serves on a number of committees. Earlier this year, she became a Certified County Commissioner through the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia.
