One of the most highly recognized leadership development programs of its kind, Leadership Raleigh provides participants with the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with key community leaders. Participants study the qualities that make an effective leader, analyze individual leadership roles and develop personal leadership styles and skills.

Applicants must show demonstrated leadership ability and/or potential, community interest and involvement and the desire to assume expanded community responsibility.

Mr. Wolfe is a member of Parker Poe’s Health Care, Regulatory and Government Relations teams, and practices in the areas of administrative litigation, government relations and health care policy and law. He formulates comprehensive political and public relations strategies on a broad range of federal and state policies. Mr. Wolfe drafts and monitors legislation, intervenes directly with legislative, executive and local officials, and appears before state and federal executive agencies. He regularly advises and counsels health care providers subject to federal and state regulatory actions. Mr. Wolfe also litigates cases in federal and state courts and the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings.

Before joining Parker Poe, Mr. Wolfe served as a law clerk for the Honorable James C. Dever III in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.
