City’s Leadership Program Accepting Applications for 2019-20 Class
Beverly Hills, CA (May 9, 2019) – Applications for the popular Team Beverly Hills program are now being accepted through Friday, June 14, 2019, and may be downloaded at www.beverlyhills.org/teambeverlyhills.
Team Beverly Hills provides residents with a hands-on look at the operations of local government. This six-month program features nine class sessions and includes interactive experiences with City departments. Program participants explore the behind-the-scenes operations of public works, emergency management, information technology, the library, recreation and parks, and public safety. Since 1996, at least 640 residents have completed Team Beverly Hills.
In July, the Beverly Hills City Council will appoint 42 new members for the program, which kicks-off in September.
Through programs such as Team Beverly Hills, citizens each year become more involved and informed about their City and community. Over 80 percent of all current elected officials and City Commissioners are Team BH alumni and over 100 alumni have volunteered their time at City events and programs.
“The Team Beverly Hills program was created to encourage leadership, celebrate community and inspire civic involvement. We hope participants take the knowledge they’ve gained and become more involved in the community,” said Larry Kohn, Team Beverly Hills Chairperson.
