The Mesa Leadership Program is currently seeking qualified applicants for the 2018 class. The program provides an exclusive opportunity to learn about Mesa. There are nine class days usually held on the first Friday of each month, August through April. The classes focus on topics of interest to Mesa leaders such as Mesa history, education, government, sustainable growth, public services, business advocacy, arts and culture, justice and economic development. The curriculum is augmented by a series of educational tours and field trips not normally available to the public, as well as, an opportunity to spend a day with the community leader of your choice.
An open house is scheduled for tonight, April 25, at 6 p.m. at the Mesa Chamber of Commerce, 40 N. Center St., Suite 104, (near Center and Pepper streets) to learn about the program.
“The excitement for the 2017-2018 program year is growing,” said Brian Lawson, current recruitment chair and 2015 graduate of the program. “The more than 700 graduates of the Mesa Leadership program have gone on to serve as leaders in business and government. They serve on city and non-profit boards, as well as the boards of local civic and social organizations.”
