Congratulations and welcome to the 2020 Neighborhood Leadership Academy
The purpose of the NLA is to help uplift, strengthen and empower existing and emerging neighborhood leaders through an informational and educational curriculum that will assist the continual development of leadership at the community level with an emphasis on highlighting great neighborhoods and sustainability. The goal is to educate citizens about city services, and create problem-solving leaders within the community to encourage organic leadership to be a part of the solution.
The NLA is a four-month long program consisting of hands-on academic sessions in the areas of local government functions, leadership theories, coalition building and effective communication. The Neighborhood Leadership Program is anticipated to begin in July and be complete in October with a ceremonial graduation proposed at City Council B Session in early-November.
We will be hosting our first Neighborhood Leadership Academy (NLA) Class on Wednesday, July 26, 2020 from 5:30-8:00pm in the Municipal Plaza Building B Room located at 114 W. Commerce Street. Dinner will be provided.
