The City of Lake Forest faces many exciting opportunities and challenges in the years ahead. To enhance community input and involvement, the City offers the Lake Forest Leadership Academy. The Citizens' Leadership Academy has developed community leaders since the spring of 2003.
The Academy is an eight-week course traditionally held once a year in the fall and provides participants with a general overview of City operations and departments. Applicants from all segments of the community are encouraged to participate. The ideal Leadership Academy will include participants 18 years or older with varied educational and cultural backgrounds who live in Lake Forest. This in-depth seminar is free. Refreshments and appetizers are included at the beginning of each session.
The Academy, beginning on September 14, will meet once a week for eight evenings and is free of charge. Sessions are scheduled from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Each session focuses on different aspects of the City with presentations from a variety of speakers.
