Applications Now Accepted for Abilene Academy

The City of Abilene would love to invite Chamber members to join our 2020 Abilene Academy class!

Abilene Academy is an eleven week course designed to show residents how our City government works, develop relationships between citizens and City staff, and identify how residents can become more involved. Each class is dedicated to a different City department; you’ll spend the evening doing anything from meeting APD K9s or seeing where all our water comes from, to touring behind the scenes at the Zoo. We round out the session with the always popular Field Day; a chance for students to see, ride, or drive the heavy equipment and machinery used across City departments.

Abilene Academy is free, and includes dinner!
