Are you interested in learning more about your community's government and operations? Consider signing up for the next session of the Local Government Academy in Fall of 2023.
The Mansfield Local Government Academy (LGA) is a 12-class program designed to educate and familiarize citizens with all aspects of their Town government. Informed citizens lead to more engaged citizens.
The Academy for 2022 has been completed, but here is an overview of the program and the topics covered.
Classes are convened in a variety of Town facilities and run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Thursdays. Discussions are led by staff members who are responsible for leading and managing the various departments and functions of local government. There is no cost to enroll and a light dinner will be provided. Class size will be between 15 and 20 enrollees.
Classes are held once a week (with the exception of “off weeks” occurring around the holidays) beginning in September and running throughout the fall until December, and participants are expected to commit to attend at least 10 of the 12 sessions.
Graduates will earn a framed certificate as well as a limited edition Town of Mansfield sign.
