Citizens Leadership Academy

The Citizens Leadership Academy informs and educates 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 an eleven-week series of informative, educational and interactive sessions to inform participants of the intricacies of Auburn’s municipal government and to help develop an understanding of various town operations, programs and services through:

  • Activities
  • Demonstrations
  • Documents
  • Presentations
  • Tours

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 Citizens Leadership Academy is scheduled to run on Thursdays beginning March 26, 2020 through June 4, 2020 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
