Past participants have said the CEA was extremely beneficial for both their general understanding of Huntsville’s government as well as their personal growth.

“This information helped us understand the in-depth functions of each department. Each class was fun and informative, allowing us to interact with each other, the department heads and even the Mayor!”

Terri Hayes, Constituent Service Program Officer, Huntsville, AL
