RIVERDALE — A national municipal government organization has certified Riverdale City Councilman An’cel Davis’ leadership knowledge in silver, the city has announced.

Davis recently received the silver certificate-leadership executive level from the National League of Cities’ Leadership Training Institute during the organization’s 2013 Congress of Cities and Exposition in Seattle, Wash. In a statement, Riverdale officials said Davis attended conference and training sessions led by Blue Angels pilots and “other esteemed professionals.”

Davis also said in the statement that he has been assigned two mentees to work with in the future.

“LTI seminars have enhanced the practical skills and strategies, as well as developed my confidence and the personal abilities that I need to properly address the issues in my community,” said Davis. “As a lifelong learner, I believe that if I take away one item that I can use in my daily life, that the session has been worth it.

“With LTI programs, I am able to adapt many lessons to my daily role as an elected official,” he added.
