The deadline to register for the 2023 Alachua County Citizens Academy is extended until March 31. Residents are encouraged to sign up. Participants will get an in-depth and hands-on understanding of how County government and constitutional offices operate and how they can most effectively engage and participate in our County's future.
The free program starts on April 6, 2023, on consecutive Thursday mornings for eight sessions.
"Informed citizens are the cornerstone of local government," says Alachua County Manager Michele L. Lieberman. "Our Alachua County Citizens Academy was recognized by the National Association of Counties with an Achievement Award. We would like you to be a part of this award-winning, fast-paced, and information-packed program."
