Participants in the Citizens Leadership Academy received their “Certificate of Achievement” during the May 1 City Council meeting. The Citizens Leadership Academy is open to Lee’s Summit residents who want to gain better insight into the operations of city government and to prepare for greater involvement in the community leadership. The Citizens Academy is meant to complement leadership training programs and academies already offered in the community. Learn more about the program.
The City is preparing for its next class for the Citizens Leadership Academy and is seeking participants. The Citizens Leadership Academy is designed to help enhance the future leaders of our community by giving participants an understanding of community development, local government governance, city operations, economic development, and city resources. The course is provided at no cost to participants. There are 8 sessions to the course, beginning January 11th at City Hall. The sessions are every other Saturday from 8:00 am to Noon. This is an excellent way for involved citizens to learn more about our community, network with colleagues and interact with City Staff.
