Gov. Pat McCrory's office announced Sunday night that he would attend a closed-door meeting with an organization called YPO Southern at noon Monday at the Governor's Mansion.
McCrory's office did not immediately respond to requests for further information. YPO Southern's website describes the group as furthering leadership for heads of organizations who are 45 years old or younger. McCrory is 56.
“YPO Southern 7 provides a diverse membership with unique opportunities to realize their full potential as presidents, family members and citizens,” the site says. “Southern 7 brings members together to discover new insights into many topics ranging from geopolitical and business to personal, family and community issues.”
The non-profit group's site also promotes a September 19 event in Raleigh entitled “The Challenge of Culture Change: Two Perspectives,” focused on “strategies surrounding culture change within the the private sector using values-based leadership,’ as contrasted to strategies being used within the public sector.
State transportation secretary Tony Tata is billed as a speaker at the September event. Monday's event is closed to the press. Staff reports.
