The City of Oakley is inviting residents to participate in the 2019 Leadership Academy.
The academy is a free, interactive civic education program designed to provide those who live and work in Oakley with a breadth of background and knowledge of the intricacies of city operations and processes. The purpose of the academy is to provide an interesting perspective into the working of Oakley, to develop civic leadership and build a stronger community through well-informed and engaged residents.
Participants will meet for seven evening sessions, each two hours, from at 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. A complementary dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Each session will focus on a specific element of city government through an engaging presentation and discussion facilitated by top city staff.
