LEAD Taylor

On Sept. 15, the new LEAD Taylor program will hold its first class for the new cohort. This civic education course will focus on collaborative, community minded classes taught by City and Chamber staff and guest speakers. Graduates can expect to be exposed to multiple facets of government operations and gain valuable experience in leadership, teamwork, community planning and more.

We have two exciting additions to this years program which includes a community service project and leadership course. Participants will work with the United Way of Williamson County for the community service project that meets the needs of a group or issue facing our community. 

Our leadership course will offer 5+ hours of leadership development, ethics, and integrity coursework that class goers can use for self improvement, personal and professional development. This coursework will be offered through the Texas Municipal League Intergovernmental Risk Pool.

“I believe this course is important because it informs us and helps us understand how our city functions and how we can most effectively engage in our community. For anyone that calls Taylor home, this is time well invested!”

-Jeff Ripple,  LEAD Taylor Graduate 2014

Another great addition to this years curriculum is a tour of the State Capitol in Austin. Participants will get an in-depth view of our state government at work and see the pristine architecture and design of the capitol building. 

LEAD Taylor is a joint effort between the City and Chamber of Commerce and will be held over a 9-month period with classes on the third Thursday of each month from noon to 5 p.m. The cost of the course will be $50 and interested applicants can contact Rocio Lopez by phone 512-352-3774 or email rocio.lopez@taylortx.gov.

"With this enhanced understanding, graduates will be better positioned to offer support where needed, and/or affect...or lead positive change."

-David Legere, LEAD Taylor Graduate 2014
