Norristown launches 5th Citizens' Leadership Academy


Norristown Municipality launches the 5th Citizens' Leadership Academy (CLA) Fall 2017.  The eight-week academy is a series of classes offered to Norristown residents to help develop skills as a community leader and understanding of how municipal government operates. Graduates of the Citizens Leadership Academy may go on to leadership roles on municipal boards, commissions and Council.

Municipal staff will conduct the sessions with focus on three major themes: Education, Leadership Development, and Communication Dynamics. Relevant information will enable citizens to understand how municipal departments serve the community, and understand the processes involved.

The Citizens Leadership Academy is free of charge.   Classes are held from 6:00pm to 7:30pm on Thursdays, starting September 14th, at the Municipal Building. Participants must complete a minimum of six of the eight classes to receive the Citizens Leadership Academy certificate. The certificate will be given in a closing ceremony at the November council meeting.  

Interested participants should submit an application to the Municipality by August 14th. Applications are available online at norristown.org or at Municipal Hall. Class size is limited to twenty spaces and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older.  More information, please contact Gabriela Prete at 610-270-0429 or via email
