Citizens Leadership Academy
Town Announces First Citizens Leadership Academy
The Town of Auburn is pleased to announce its first Citizens Leadership Academy to inform and educate residents on the operations of Town government in order to provide a greater understanding of their local government and to stimulate future interest in serving on boards and commissions.

The Citizens Leadership Academy is a ten-week series of informative, educational and interactive sessions to inform participants of the intricacies of Auburn’s municipal government through presentations, documents, tours, demonstrations and activities to help develop an understanding of various town operations, programs and services.  Our goal is to infuse an interest in and deeper understanding of local government and to hopefully aid in the development of a future pool of informed residents who are willing to serve as local leaders on boards, committees and commissions within the Auburn community.

The first Citizens Leadership Academy is scheduled to run on Thursdays beginning March 22, 2018 through May 24, 2018 from 6:00-8:30 PM.

  • Must be a resident of Auburn for at least the preceding 12 months (1 year)
  • Must be a Registered Voter in Auburn
  • Must be 18 years of age by July 1, 2018
