Just one week after the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the GOV Channel has released Charlotte City Manager Ron Carlee’s personal account of the Pentagon attack. This presentation, originally for employees only, is now available for everyone starting tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Carlee became the City of Charlotte's 11th City Manager in April 2013. Prior to joining the City, he was chief operating officer/executive in residence of ICMA (International City/County Management Association). Over the course of his career, Carlee has served more than 30 years in local government, holding a number of diverse, senior executive positions, including manager of Arlington County, Virginia, which is located in the Washington D.C. area and where the Pentagon is located. This is where he was on September 11, 2001.

Carlee is widely recognized within the local government management profession for his leadership in Arlington’s response to the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon. In his presentation, he speaks candidly on the topic of emergency management and the importance of a team approach – now and then. His work focuses on leadership, inter-organizational relations, social equity, civic engagement and sustainability. Many believe his experience will benefit Charlotte’s ability to build partnerships and resources. 
Watch this presentation on the GOV Channel (Cable 16) or online here.
