Denise D. Adams, LNC CLASS XIX

Council Member
City of Winston-Salem

The LNC forum provided me the opportunity to meet with other leaders who are committed to meeting North Carolina’s challenges and making positive changes in the State.  It is a very powerful and dynamic organization, and I am very happy to have made many new contacts and friends through LNC. Being selected to participate in this worthwhile program has been an added resource for me as an elected official. I was able to learn firsthand the various aspects of our great state and how we are all engaged in our work and what we do to create a quality of life.

I had the opportunity to hear different perspectives of our rural and urban areas and what we must do to work together to address the issues that confront our state in a global world. We must continue to improve educational excellence in order to drive economic and community development. Leadership North Carolina will continue to help our state and its leaders to understand the importance of partnerships and collaboration. The relationships that states and municipalities foster going forward will determine the future of its citizens. LNC is an important catalyst to making those relationships sustainable.”
