Dorset Council Officer Returns from International Exchange

Check out the three online blogs written about this experience!

Back in August we reported that our very own Community Projects Coordinator, Anneka Ferguson, was selected from nationwide applicants to participate in a local government exchange to Coconino County, located in Arizona, USA!

Anneka has since attended the 102nd Annual Conference of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) in Kansas City, followed by two weeks based in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Dr. Marie Peoples, Chief Health Officer of the Coconino County Public Health Services District, kindly hosted Anneka and her husband during their time visiting Arizona to find out all about how local government works in the US. Anneka wrote a few blogs describing her experiences that can be seen here:

Many thanks go to Local Government Professionals Australia and ICMA who provided the scholarship that allowed Anneka to participate in this exciting professional and organisational development opportunity.
