Building Local Leaders
Neighborhood Councils were formed to create grassroots leaders and to strengthen neighborhood participation in the City governance.
Members of Neighborhood Council Leadership Teams are charged with building:
- Neighborhood Communication
- Neighborhood-initiated Projects
- Interaction and Building Relationships with Neighbors and your Community
- Problem-solving Issues and Barriers that your Neighborhood may face
For active members and leaders to effectively engage other residents, Leadership Training is offered to help develop the skills of those involved. Leadership Team trainings include Board Trainings, Facilitator Trainings, Local Government classes, etc.
Leadership Team Orientation is offered as new members join the team and can be offered as needed. If you are interested in participating or want more information, email Kalina Pritchard at PritchardK@ci.missoula.mt.us.
Upcoming Leadership Team Training
Join the Missoula Neighborhoods Office and the Local Government Center at MSU for a curated training just for Missoula Neighborhood Leadership Team members! This training will be on Thursday, November 2nd from 5:30-7:30pm in City Council Chambers (140 W. Pine St.). This training will cover the City of Missoula charter, the Neighborhood structure, new Leadership skills, and ways that you can make an impact in your community. We will have dinner available for all attendees.
This is not a requirement of Leadership Team members but it is strongly recommended that all Leadership Team members participate in the training. If you are not able to make this training, we will be offering another one in the spring of 2024.
We do need to get a headcount so please fill out this form as soon as possible to reserve your spot: https://forms.office.com/g/JzHpKXeLUp. We do ask for you to let us know of any food specifications or allergies and if you have any questions that you would like answered!
