Professor Emeritus, University of North Carolina School of Government
Fellow and Professor Emeritus David Ammons (University of North Carolina School of Government) described how his university helped local governments find and learn from the best practices of top performers. He also explained how best-practice benchmarking is different and can be more constructive than other benchmarking approaches. Fellow and former D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams, Orange County Virginia Administrator Theodore Voorhees, and Strategic Performance Director of WSSC Water serving Montgomery and Prince George's County in Maryland Yvonne Carney discussed how the federal government, states, and local colleges and universities might help state and local governments learn from each other to serve their communities better. The Mid-Atlantic StatNet network and Academy’s Center for Intergovernmental Partnerships co-sponsored this event.
