Fulton Commissioner Natalie Hall Earns Several Distinctions

Fulton Commissioner Natalie Hall Selected for National County Leadership Institute

Fulton County District 4 Commissioner Natalie Hall is one of a select group of county leaders nationwide who will participate in the 16th Annual County Leadership Institute. NACo’s 2019 County Leadership Institute is restricted in size with a maximum of 30 participants allowed in the Leadership class.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) allows for just one nomination per state. Commissioner Hall was nominated by Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG) Executive Director Dave Wills to represent the state of Georgia.

CLI is a rigorous program, developed by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and Cambridge Leadership Associates, which equips county officials with practical leadership strategies as they explore innovative approaches to address key issues facing their counties and constituents.

CLI helps county leaders develop their approach toward solving complex challenges. It provides tools to encourage innovation and creativity, resources for invigorating organizational culture, and best practices in effective communication, collaboration and decision-making. This year’s program focuses on the demands of personal leadership in the modern era of government. As one of the selected participants, Commissioner Hall will participate in NACo’s 2019 County Leadership Institute in Washington, DC from June 9 through 13.

“I am honored to be among those selected for this program, and look forward to bringing back innovative ideas and approaches to serve my constituents and Fulton County residents countywide,” said Commissioner Hall.

Matthew Chase, NACo’s Executive Director, said, “County officials often address similar issues and can learn a great deal from one another. The County Leadership Institute fosters peer-to-peer learning and encourages common-sense solutions to challenges that counties and residents face every day.”

“My nomination of Fulton County Commissioner Natalie Hall for inclusion in the National Association of Counties’ (NACo) 2019 County Leadership Institute was predicated upon my observation of her commitment to learning as much as possible, as quickly as possible through the courses offered by the Association County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG),” said ACCG Executive Director Dave Wills. “In addition to engaging in educational courses offered by ACCG, Commissioner Hall successfully advocated for the inclusion of Fulton County staff in educational courses. Her commitment to continued education and training confirmed for me that she would be a great candidate to participate in NACo’s County Leadership Institute.”

Natalie Hall is Fulton County Commissioner of District 4 which encompasses the heart of Atlanta, downtown, Midtown, Old 4th Ward, and neighborhoods west of downtown Atlanta to Fulton Industrial Boulevard. The unique attribute about this district is that it’s completely inside of the City of Atlanta. Since joining the Board of Commissioners in 2017, Commissioner Hall has focused on testing, treatment, and education for HIV/AIDS, workforce training and employment opportunities, affordable housing, mental and behavioral health, seniors, youth, and civic engagement. Earlier this year, she became a Certified County Commissioner through the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia through the University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government.

Commissioner Hall is appointed to a number of NACo boards and committees such as the Healthy Counties Initiative Advisory Board, Information Technology Standing Committee, Resilient Counties Advisory Board and the Large Urban Caucus Steering Committee.
