THE MISSION of the Oregon Emerging Local Government Leaders Network is to enhance communication between emerging and experienced government professionals; provide for professional advancement in the field by identifying employment opportunities and through targeted training and education; and support the advancement of professional local government management. The Emerging Local Government Leaders (ELGL) group is a growing network of local government professionals who meet regularly to discuss topics of interest; share knowledge and information; and support one another in their career aspirations in public service.
ELGL is comprised of more than 350 local government professionals, in the early to middle stages of their government careers, from city managers to management analysts. Over sixty governmental entities are represented, including graduate students from Portland State University, Washington State University, and Willamette University. The overarching goal of the group is to address the issue of mentoring the next generation of local government leaders. An active listserv, monthly luncheons, and our website are some of the communication tools our network utilizes.
