Bryan Leadership Academy registration deadline extended
Feb. 22 UPDATE – The deadline to apply for the 2011 Bryan Leadership Academy has been extended until Wednesday, March 2.
Have you ever wondered how potholes are repaired or how the fire department is able to respond so quickly to emergencies? Are you curious how the City of Bryan prepares its budget or decides where a park should be located?
Now’s your chance to learn more about your local government! The City of Bryan is now accepting applications for the 2011 Bryan Leadership Academy (BLA.) BLA is a 10-week class that meets each Monday night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. beginning March 21 and ending May 23. BLA gives its participants an inside look at the operations of the City of Bryan to help improve citizens’ understanding of city government and the role they can play in the government system.
At each class a light meal will be provided and participants will hear presentations from representatives of more than 20 city departments. BLA is free, but space is limited to the first 20 eligible applicants due to limited seating, so sign-up today.
In order to be eligible for BLA you cannot be running for or currently serving in a political office. Participants must also be able to attend each class. Participants who miss more than one session will be dropped from the program. Eligible applicants must also be a senior in high school or older.
The deadline to apply for the academy is now Wednesday, March 2.
Applicants can apply online at: http://www.bryantx.gov/departments/executive/blaapps.htm, or they can mail, fax, or walk-in completed applications to Sally Jurica at the Bryan Municipal Office Building (see contact information below.) Applicants will receive a notification of acceptance by March 11.
We’ll see you at the Bryan Leadership Academy!
