The Ashland Community Leadership Academy is a series of monthly seminars designed to provide individuals 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 to provide preparation to serve on Town boards, commissions, and committees.
Seminar sessions feature behind-the-scenes field trips and tours, guest speakers, interactive demonstrations from town staff, group discussions, activities, case studies, and other topic-related exercises.
The 2022-2023 Ashland Community Leadership Academy will take place from December 2022-May 2023 and will be limited to 18 participants to facilitate deeper discussion and a broader range of experiences. Applicants must live, volunteer or work within the corporate limits of the Town of Ashland and be high school seniors or beyond. There is no fee to participate, but applications must be submitted by November 15th, 2022 in order to be considered.
