Citizen Leadership Academy

new love art cart 2020 (2)The Ashland Citizen Leadership Academy is a series of monthly seminars designed to provide citizens living or working in Ashland with an in-depth look at how the town works, a chance to discuss important local issues with town leaders, staff and other engaged citizens, and the preparation to serve on town boards, commissions, committees, and neighborhoods.

Seminar sessions feature guest speakers, interactive demonstrations from town staff, group discussions, activities, case studies, and other topic-related exercises. If you're accepted to the program, you'll be expected to attend regularly, be active in our community, and explore new ways to learn about and contribute to the future of Ashland. Graduates will be honored with a reception at town hall, officially recognized by the town council, and considered for future committee appointments.
