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. Since spring of 2003, the Citizens' Leadership Academy has developed community leaders.
The Academy is an eight-week course traditionally held once per 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. The Academy is limited to the first 25 registrants. Participants are selected on a first come, first serve basis. This in-depth seminar is free and includes dinner at the beginning of each session.
When again allowed under health orders, the Academy will meet once a week for eight evenings beginning and is free of charge. Sessions are typically scheduled from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Each week we focus upon different aspects of the City with presentations from a variety of speakers.
