June 25, 2019 – The City of Arcadia is offering a free, behind-the-scenes look into the City’s operations for Arcadia residents 18 years and older starting in September 2019. This powerful community leadership program grants you an all-access pass that immerses you in the inner workings of Arcadia’s City government. The Academy produces empowered, inspired, and engaged resident leaders who strengthen our community and play an active role in Arcadia’s future.
“The Leadership Academy is a priceless opportunity to get to know your City and have your voice heard,” said a former Leadership Academy Graduate. “The program helps residents learn more about the City’s operations and builds stronger ties between the City and its residents.” The Academy takes place on Wednesday evenings over a period of nine weeks between September 11 and November 5 (Tuesday). This exclusive access to the City will include one-of-a kind tours of City facilities, hands-on demonstrations, meet and greets, and interactive presentations by executive leadership on the ins and outs of each City department. Dinner is also provided. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Arcadia like you’ve never seen it before. Gain a new perspective on what it takes to be a premier organization that values service and excellence. If you are interested in applying to be part of the fall program, please visit the City website at ArcadiaCA.gov/academy for the current application. Space is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to apply is August 30, 2019.
