Oakley Launches Leadership Academy

The City of Oakley is inviting residents to participate in the 2014 Leadership Academy. The Academy is a free, interactive civic education program designed to provide those who live and work in Oakley a breadth of background and knowledge of the intricacies of City operations and processes. The purpose of the program is to provide an interesting perspective into the working of Oakley, to develop civic leadership, and to build a stronger community through well-informed and engaged residents.

Participants will meet for seven evening sessions, each two hours in length beginning at 6:30 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m. Each session will focus on a specific element of city government through an engaging presentation and discussion facilitated by top City staff. The academy will meet twice a month beginning October 7th on the first and third Tuesdays of each month through December. Please not however, that the fourth session will take place on Wednesday, November 19th, as not to conflict with the re-scheduled City Council Meeting.

Class size is limited to the first 20 respondents, on a fist come first served basis, but no later than 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 18th. A registration form may be found by clicking here or at City Hall, located at 3231 Main St. Oakley.

To participate, an applicant must be at least 16 years of age, live or work within the boundaries of the City of Oakley, and commit to attending the entire series.

If you have any questions please contact Nancy Marquez-Suarez at 925-625-7007 or marquez@ci.oakley.ca.us.
