Registration Now Open for Civic Leadership Academy 2023

Peoria County announced today that the Civic Leadership Academy (CLA), an annual program held each fall in conjunction with the City of Peoria, will be returning in September 2023. With an aim to help locals understand governmental functions, the free program includes a weekly session that takes place at either a County or City government facility and usually involves a presentation, tour, and time for questions and answers.

This year, the program will be on Monday evenings at 6:00 PM from September 25 to October 30, plus the City Council meeting and County Board meeting the week of November 5.

Topics and tours include the Peoria Police Department, Emergency Communications Center, Peoria County Coroner’s Office, Peoria County Sheriff’s Office, Peoria Public Works, and Peoria County Animal Protection Services amongst others. Programs are hosted by local officials discussing the work their department performs, the resources they offer, and the challenges they face.

Civic Leadership Academy is for ages 18 and older and requires registration at or at the Peoria County Courthouse. Details are subject to change with a final schedule to be handed out at the first session. Space is limited, and applicants will be notified upon their acceptance into the program.
