Archived News Release: January 25, 2021 - ​The Ann Arbor Community Academy (A2CA) is returning for a fourth year to provide a broad view of local government for community members 18 years of age and older. During a series of weekly sessions, from Wednesday, March 10, to Wednesday, April 28, 6:30–8:30 p.m., participants will connect with city staff and officials and learn more about long-term city planning efforts, day-to-day operations and the importance of civic involvement. The program, formerly named Ann Arbor Citizens Academy, is free to participants. The academy will not meet March 31, to coincide with Ann Arbor Public Schools spring break.

A form for those interested in participating in A2CA is currently online at https://www.a2gov.org/departments/city-clerk/A2CA/Pages/Ann-Arbor-Community-Academy.aspx. The deadline to submit the interest form is Friday, Feb. 19, 2021. Those who submit the form will be contacted with more information about the program and next steps once planning is complete.

After participating in A2CA tours, presentations and activities designed to deepen the understanding of governmental functions and services, city leadership hopes participants will be motivated to play a more active role in shaping the future of Ann Arbor. Graduates from past academies have served on the City Council, Planning Commission, Public Art Commission, Water System Advisory Board and have participated in other city projects and programs.

A2CA is designed to give an overview of city government for adult residents of the city of Ann Arbor. Based on program capacity, preference will be given to residents of the city of Ann Arbor over nonresidents.
