Spring 2014 Leadership College

A UNIQUE NINE-WEEK COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AND ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM

The Leadership College is an introduction to a variety of resources and information available to you as you work within your community and with city staff to improve the quality of life in your neighborhood while promoting a stronger sense of community.

The Leadership College is an interactive, practical, and engaging series of discussions, lectures, role plays, team building, and related field work that will help you:
  • Learn best practices in organizing your community
  • Learn how to access city services
  • Personally meet those who provide city services
  • Understand city procedures and policies
  • Gain basic conflict resolution skills
One of the many overwhelming responses that have been received from past Leadership College graduates include the following: "I want to thank all of the presenters; they were very informative, honest, and open in their presentations and follow-up discussions. This course opened my eyes to the need to be involved to improve the quality of life in the city now and for future generations."

It’s free to City of Roanoke residents and employees but space is limited. A light dinner and refreshments are also served.

The Leadership College sessions are held on the same night of each week beginning in mid March and continuing through mid May 2014. Once the exact dates and times are finalized, they will be posted. However, interested participants are urged to register in advance for once the dates and times have been set, you will be notified to make certain your schedule will allow you to attend.

Register Online Today! as seating is limited and is filled on a first come-first serve basis.
