Dr. Clyde Deloach, of the Blue Ridge District, was among 14 supervisors from 11 Virginia counties to meet in May for the virtual closing session of the “Good Governance: The Role of Leadership” course in the Virginia Certified County Supervisors’ Program, according to recent information from the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo).
The class instructor, Mike Chandler, Ph.D., led participants through discussions during the eight-week course about the role of leadership and governance as they apply to the experiences of supervisors.
Deloach said five different topics covered in the program. Each topic includes an introductory and closing segment as well as a series of classes in between.
“One of the great things about these classes is I get to talk to supervisors from other localities, from the biggest to smallest,” Deloach said, adding that “we all have common problems.”
There are three parts of the certification program. “I finished two and the third one is” scheduled to be held in August. When he completes the program, Deloach said he will be a certified county supervisor.
He also was appointed by VACo to serve on two of the organization’s state committees – Finance and the Health and Human Resources committees.
