Citizens Leadership Academy

The Town of Auburn is pleased to announce its 2nd annual Citizens Leadership Academy to inform and educate residents on the operations of Town government in order to provide a greater understanding of their local government and to stimulate future interest in serving on boards and commissions.

The Citizens Leadership Academy is an eleven-week series of informative, educational and interactive sessions to inform participants of the intricacies of Auburn’s municipal government and to help develop an understanding of various town operations, programs and services through:

Our goal is to infuse an interest in and deeper understanding of local government and to hopefully aid in the development of a future pool of informed residents who are willing to serve as local leaders on boards, committees and commissions within the Auburn community.
