[ARCHIVED] City Seeks Applicants for 2017 East Lansing Emerging Leaders Program

EAST LANSING, Mich. – The City of East Lansing is now accepting applications for its 2017 Emerging Leaders Program.

The application, available online at, must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Friday, January 20, 2017 for consideration.

The East Lansing Emerging Leaders Program is an eight-week course in civic engagement designed to build tomorrow’s leaders today. The program was first offered 10 years ago in 2007 and, since that time, five groups of Emerging Leaders have graduated from the program.

Participants of the 2017 program will hone leadership and public service skills by learning about a variety of course topics taught by a range of local business, community and government leaders. Many past graduates have gone on to serve as members of neighborhood associations, City boards and commissions and even the East Lansing City Council.

“The Emerging Leaders Program is a great way for citizens of East Lansing to learn more about local government and prepare themselves to become more civically engaged in the community they call home,” said East Lansing City Clerk Marie Wicks, who has been involved in the program since its beginning in 2007. “It has been really rewarding to see what our past graduates have gone on to do in East Lansing over the past 10 years and we can’t wait to kick off the 2017 program with a new group of participants.”

All applicants must be East Lansing residents (either homeowner or renter) and must be 18 years of age or older. The program is free. Learn more at
