Launching Craven Connection Citizens Academy
In an effort to enhance citizen engagement, Craven County will launch Craven Connection, a Citizens Academy in the fall of 2019. Craven County Government will be soliciting applicants from across the County to engage in this pro-active approach to educating citizens, including newcomers, on the mechanics of county government in North Carolina, and more specifically, Craven County. Citizens' understanding of their government is essential to transparency initiatives and for encouraging their involvement.
There is no cost to participate in the academy, which will be conducted in five segments from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., on four Tuesdays, beginning October 1, 2019 and ending Monday, November 4, 2019:
Tuesday, October 1
Tuesday, October 15
Tuesday, October 22
Tuesday, October 29
Monday, November 4
The academy is limited to 15 participants, and only one participant per household. Click here for an application and to view a detailed schedule. The application deadline is August 30. Participants will be notified of their acceptance by September 10.
