We are excited that you will be attending the NC Black Elected Municipal Officials (NCBEMO) Summer Conference to be held Friday, July 28 through Sunday, July 30, 2023 at the Rocky Mount Event Center, 285 NE Main St, Rocky Mount, NC 27801. We have an awesome program planned for you with topics we hope you will enjoy along with some good food, music, and entertainment! The City of Rocky Mount will provide bus services from the Doubletree and Marriott hotels to the Event Center daily.
As you are aware, NCBEMO, (an affiliate of the NC League of Municipalities), is a nonpartisan organization of black elected municipal officials and those who believe in its mission to act as a statewide forum and provide information on public policy issues. NCBEMO represents mayors and councilmembers from over 540 cities and towns across the state. We provide a forum for information on public policy; serve as an advocate for positive legislative change and oppose injurious legislation; cooperate with all levels of government and agencies to develop intergovernmental policy and programs; promote, sponsor or conduct training programs; promote education in municipal government; support officials in the administration of their affairs; and provide opportunities to study, discuss, interchange ideas and experiences, obtain expert advice to improve their cities. We also present the Dr. Larry Womble Scholarship award to at least two deserving high school seniors (based on need and overall GPA) entering college. We also award the Dr. Viviane Burke Community Leadership award to recognize those who have done outstanding work in their community.
We value your membership and look forward to seeing you in Rocky Mount!
Yours in Service,
Mayor, City of Kinston
