The City of Georgetown TX has sponsored the Civic Leaders Academy since 2021. It allows citizens of Georgetown to learn about city government and their elected officials. It provides an immersive education into the daily workings of city government and all the respective departments through monthly four-hour educational sessions over a nine-month period ranging from city finance, to parks and recreation to utilities to downtown development to library services to city management. There is also a session on how the city council functions to guide the city’s future. Each session is headed by a member of the leadership team of Georgetown and provides a window on what it takes to make Georgetown the greatest city to live and work in.
The Georgetown TX Rotary Club was fortunate to have two of its members, Todd Smith and Joe Orsak, graduate from this year’s class. Rotarian Tom Paxson graduated from the inaugural class last year. If you are interested in learning more about the city of Georgetown and want to become a member of one of the many city commissions or committees the Civic Leaders Academy is a great place to start. Applications for the next Academy will go live online in August.
