Knoxville Leadership Academy


The City of Knoxville will be hosting a Spring Leadership Academy for 2019!

Did you know 2019 is a city election year? Have you or someone you know thought about running for City Council? If so, Knoxville Leadership Academy is a great opportunity to get up to speed on city operations.

Have you wanted to participate in the past but weren't able due to scheduling conflicts during the Fall?

We hope by having a Spring session this year it will allow those who are impacted by the statements above or anyone else who's anxious to learn more about their local city government will consider being a part of the City of Knoxville's 2019 Leadership Academy.

The Academy is a 6-week leadership course that gives city residents an opportunity to learn more about their local government, encouraging individuals to be informed and inspired to effectively become more involved in our community. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays beginning April 2nd through Monday, May 6th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
