Have you ever wondered how or why the city does something? Are you interested in learning more about the inner-workings of local government? Are you considering seeking public office, or an appointment to a city board or commission? If so, then Peoria Leadership Institute may be for you!

Peoria Leadership Institute offers an in-depth look at all operations of city government. Class members learn more about the city’s governmental structure, its budget and finances, public works, utility, police and fire operations through interactive discussions with management staff.

Peoria Leadership Institute is enjoyable for everyone, but should prove especially insightful for those considering public office or seeking appointment to one of the city's advisory boards or commissions.

The city of Peoria appreciates the opportunity to communicate with citizens about the functions & operations of municipal government. Although the above programs are very informative, there may be specific subjects that you'd like to know more about. With enough public suggestion, we may implement additional citizen education programs, but we need to know what you'd like to know more about.
