Two Camden County employees received a Master Certificate in Leadership as a part of the National Association of Counties (NACo) High Performance Leadership Academy (HPLA). Janice Beckham and Kelsey Kelley have completed the 12-week program.
“We are extremely proud of these local government leaders,” said County Administrator Steve Howard. “This was an amazing opportunity for Camden County to participate in this innovative distance learning program with a world-class faculty.”
NACo’s HPLA was created to equip frontline county government professionals with practical leadership skills to deliver results for counties and communities. With a robust curriculum developed by the Professional Development Academy in partnership with Fortune 1000 executives, public sector leaders, world-renowned academics and thought leaders, HPLA was designed specifically for the unique challenges and opportunities of serving in county government.
Janice Beckham began working for the Camden County Board of Commissioners in March 2015 and currently serves as Finance Director. Kelsey Kelley began working for the Camden County Board of Commissioners as the Purchasing Officer in November 2019.
“I appreciate the hard work and dedication that Janice and Kelsey have demonstrated to Camden County and the finance team,” said Chief Financial Officer Nancy Clark-Gonzalez. “This is a wonderful program to enhance leadership skills, and I’m so glad they were able to participate.”
