GREENVILLE — Salisbury Mayor Karen Alexander has been selected for a two-year term on the board of directors of the North Carolina League of Municipalities.

In that role, Alexander will help oversee the advocacy and membership services 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.

Executive Director Paul Meyer said he looks forward to working with Alexander and is confident that her contributions will continue to help the league better enable cities and towns across the state to better serve their residents.

CityVision 2017 brought more than 600 people to the Greenville Convention Center. It included programming focused on entrepreneurial solutions for economic development, regional approaches to municipal challenges and Smart Cities technology.

Participants 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.
