Siler City offers intro to local government course


The Town of Siler City will be offering a multi-week Local Government course for free starting at the end of the month.‌

The course will be an opportunity for participants to learn about Town services and opportunities, connect with Town leadership and community members and have a chance to lead by engaging in dialogue about community issues.

The purpose of the course is to improve participant’s understanding of the Town and its services and programs, learn about community issues, foster communication and encourage participants to become volunteers and effective community leaders.

The course will hold sessions from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays from Jan. 30 to Feb. 27.

Participants are required to be at least 18 years of age on or before the first day of the course and must complete both a written registration form and sign a participation agreement.

To complete the course and receive a graduation certificate, participants must attend the first session, not miss more than one session in total and complete a participant survey at the end.
