Citizens Leadership Academy

The Town of Henniker is pleased to announce its 1st annual Citizens Leadership Academy to inform and educate residents on the operations of the Town government to provide a greater understanding of their local government and to stimulate future interest in serving on boards and commissions.

The Citizens Leadership Academy is an 8-week series of informative, educational, and interactive sessions to inform participants of the intricacies of Henniker’s municipal government through presentations, documents, tours, demonstrations, and activities to help develop an understanding of various town operations, programs, and services. Our goal is to infuse interest in and deeper understanding of local government and to hopefully aid in developing a pool of informed residents who are willing to serve as local leaders on boards, committees, and commissions within the Henniker community.

The Citizens Leadership Academy is scheduled to run on Thursdays beginning September 30, 2021, through November 18, 2021, from 6:00-8:00 PM.

Interested applicants must meet the following qualifications:

  • Must be a resident of Henniker
  • Must be a Registered Voter in Henniker
  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Willing to go through a background check and sign a liability waiver
