Chatham County Sheriff Mike Roberson was recently elected third vice president of the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association.
Roberson was tapped for the position during the 99th annual NCSA convention in late July. The position is considered a high honor and carries significant responsibilities within the association.
“I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity,” Roberson said. “I appreciate the guidance of my fellow sheriffs and the faith they have placed in me and my leadership abilities. I have learned some valuable lessons from this talented group, and feel encouraged by their continued support.”
Roberson says the NCSA Business Conference presents sheriffs with a unique opportunity to learn from experts, develop professional friendships and mentorships, and build bridges across jurisdictional lines.
“The conference energizes leaders by providing an opportunity for all North Carolina sheriffs to join together in one place to discuss common issues and best practices, review important updates to state law or required training, brainstorm solutions to specific challenges, and show support for one another,” he said. “The ultimate goal is to enhance our level of service and improve safety within our communities.”
Those who attend the conference are intended to return home with fresh inspiration and ideas for improvement within their organizations. Roberson says he is excited for the year ahead and looks forward to implementing some innovative approaches in Chatham County as a result of the session.
“As a leader, it’s important to keep an open mind and be willing to tackle new challenges when given the chance,” he said. “Doing so helps renew focus and sharpen our vision for the future… and as long as we work together, I believe the future of Chatham County and the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association is brighter and more promising than ever before.”
