LEAD Taylor

On Thursday, September 21, the second LEAD Taylor program begins a new series of classes. This civic education course focuses on collaborative, community-minded classes taught by City of Taylor and Chamber of Commerce 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.

Participants will be introduced to current issues facing Taylor and have an opportunity to gain valuable personal leadership tools via the coursework. In addition, participants will gain skills to 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

LEAD Taylor is a joint effort between the City and Chamber of Commerce and will be held over a nine-month period with classes on the third Thursday of each month from noon to 5 p.m. There is no cost to enroll in LEAD Taylor. Interested applicants may contact Rocio Lopez with any questions at 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
