In that role Ferebee will help oversee the advocacy and membership service efforts of the League, which represents more than 540 cities, towns and villages across North Carolina.
The selection was made by league members during the organization’s annual conference, CityVision 2017, held last week in Greenville.
“I’m just pleased for them to think I was a good candidate for that,” Ferebee said today. “I have served on other committees in the past.”
Roanoke Rapids is in District 5 of the league, which is made up of Edgecombe, Franklin, Halifax, Nash, Northampton and Warren counties.
Serving on the board, Ferebee said he is a representative of not only District 5, but cities and towns which encompass all 12 districts.
League Executive Director Paul Meyer said he looks forward to working with Ferebee and is confident his contributions will continue to help NCLM better enable cities and towns across North Carolina to better serve their residents.
CityVision 2017 brought more than 600 attendees to the Greenville Convention Center. The event included programming focused on entrepreneurial solutions for economic development, regional approaches to municipal challenges, and Smart Cities technology.
Attendees of CityVision 2017 also heard from National League of Cities President Matt Zone, State Treasurer Dale Folwell, Court of Appeals Chief Judge Linda McGee and state Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jackson.
