Board of Supervisors

Johnson County Supervisor Royceann Porter was selected as one of only 23 county government leaders from across the nation to participate in the 18th Annual County Leadership Institute (CLI). This intensive program, developed jointly by the National Association of Counties (NACo) and Cambridge Leadership Associates, took place in June in Washington D.C.

Supervisor Porter reflects on her acceptance and participation in this prestigious program in a recent edition of Iowa State Association of Counties (ISAC) magazine, which you can find at

The institute's curriculum is meticulously designed to equip county leaders like Porter with tools to cultivate innovation, nurture dynamic organizational cultures, and hone skills in communication, collaboration, and decision-making. By facilitating peer-to-peer learning and encouraging practical problem-solving, CLI aims to generate pragmatic solutions to the multifaceted challenges faced by counties and their residents on a daily basis.

With a distinguished history of nurturing county officials' capacity to implement innovative solutions, CLI has seen 388 graduates hailing from 196 counties across 42 states since its inception. For more information about the County Leadership Institute, go to
