Classes will be convened in a variety of Town facilities and run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Thursdays. Discussions will be led by public officials responsible for leading and managing the various departments and functions of local government. There is no cost to enroll and a light dinner will be provided. Class size will be between 15 and 20 enrollees (NOTE: class size may be capped lower due to COVID).

Classes will be held once a week (with the exception of “off weeks” occurring around the holidays) beginning in October and running through January, and participants are required to attend 8 of the 10 sessions.

Graduates will earn a framed certificate as well as a limited edition Town of Mansfield sign.
