Mesa District 4 Councilmember Chris Glover has been named a Flinn-Brown Leadership Academy Fellow for 2016 by the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership.
The independent, nonpartisan Arizona Center for Civic Leadership selected 36 individuals as the 2016 cohort of the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy, a group of Arizonans from across the state and all walks of life and perspectives who share a commitment to state-level public service.
“It is a tremendous honor to have been selected as a Fellow for this year and I look forward to representing Mesa,” Glover said. “This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about what challenges the state and its citizens face and how we can help to meet those challenges in the most productive way possible.”
The Flinn-Brown experience begins with Fellows, who are selected competitively, studying major issues facing the state and gaining an understanding of numerous perspectives on politics and public policy to inform their leadership. They participate in a 12-part seminar series led by Arizona policy and political experts, a leadership master class, and executive coaching.
The Arizona Center for Civic Leadership, administered by the Flinn Foundation, was launched in 2010 to strengthen civic leadership throughout Arizona. Since Flinn-Brown’s inaugural cohort participated in the academy in 2011, the initiative has established a reputation for rigorous learning and has fostered a strong network to help expand the cadre of state-level leaders with the knowledge, skills, and commitment to address Arizona’s long-term issues.
