The City of Oakley is inviting residents to participate in the 2018 Leadership Academy. The Academy is a free, interactive civic education program designed to provide those who live and work in Oakley with a breadth of background and knowledge of the intricacies of City operations and processes. The purpose of the Academy is to provide an interesting perspective into the working of Oakley, to develop civic leadership, and to build a stronger community through well-informed and engaged residents.
The academy consists of eight sessions, including a graduation ceremony. Each session will be two hours in length, beginning at 6:30 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m. A light dinner will be served to the participants and a break mid-way through the evening will be scheduled. We will meet for the first time on Tuesday, September 4th and thereafter on the first, third, and fifth Tuesdays of each month through Tuesday, November 20th. Graduating participants will be recognized during the December 11, 2018 City Council Meeting.
Class size is limited to the first 25 respondents, on a fist-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline is Monday, August 27th.
To participate, an applicant must be at least 16 years of age, live or work within the boundaries of the City of Oakley, and commit to attending the entire series.
