500th Community Leader Graduates from Citizens Water Academy
The Water Authority's pioneering Citizens Water Academy celebrated the graduation of its 500th community leader — Kelsey Ceccarelli of the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership — on Oct. 26 at the conclusion of the fall class series.
During the popular and award-winning academy program, civic leaders learn about visionary local efforts to ensure a safe and reliable water supply for the San Diego region. Participants get an in-depth look at how the Water Authority helps protect the region's economy and quality of life through strategic planning, innovative programs, and cost-effective investments.
“Anyone who aspires to civic or business leadership should invest the time to learn about this fundamental resource,” Water Authority Board Chair Jim Madaffer said. “I guarantee that the Citizens Water Academy will change the way they think about this amazing place we call home.”
The next Citizens Water Academy is scheduled for Spring 2019. Class dates will be available in December.
