Citizens’ University to Kick Off for 11th Consecutive Year

Fulton County’s Citizens’ University begins April 2, 2015 for the 11th consecutive year. The twelve-week intensive training program provides citizens with a close-up view of how their local government works.

Participants can gain a better understanding of County government, the available services and the role of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners.

Citizens’ University students learn how laws are proposed, passed and amended and they personally interact with key management personnel. Participants are urged to take what they learn back to their communities to strengthen ties between communities and their government and encourage more collaboration to enhance the quality of life in Fulton County.

The registration fee is $40 and class size is limited to 30 citizens. All classes begin at 6:00 p.m. and run from Thursday April 2, 2015 through Thursday, June 11, 2015 with a graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 18, 2015. The deadline for class registration is Wednesday, March 25, 2015.

To receive more information or obtain a Citizens’ University application, citizens may email Citizens.University@fultoncountyga.gov or call 404-612-8300.
