CLEMMONS COUNCIL MEMBER ELECTED TO NATIONAL BOARD
The National League of Cities elected Mary Cameron of Clemmons to its board of directors

(RALEIGH, N.C.) – Clemmons Council Member Mary Cameron was elected to the National League of Cities Board of Directors at the organization’s annual convention in Seattle last week. Cameron has been involved in local government for more than 20 years and attended each National League of Cities convention for almost a decade.

In addition to nearly perfect attendance, Cameron served on the organizations’ small cities steering and finance committees. She has also been active with the North Carolina League of Municipalities by chairing committees including the finance, accounting and intergovernmental relations committee and as a member of League affiliate, Women in Municipal Government for 18 years.

“I’m honored to represent North Carolina,” Cameron said. “It’s important to have a voice at the national level that will speak for our best interests.”

The board is governed by three officers, all past presidents in government service, and 40 members. The membership elects 20 new members to two-year terms annually, while officers are elected to serve one-year terms.

“We are pleased to have such a great representative of North Carolina,” said League Executive Director Ellis Hankins. “Mary will bring a unique and valuable skill set to the board.”
