Leadership Coppell is a dynamic, hands-on, community leadership program that immerses participants in executive-level leadership training through experiential sessions designed to educate citizens on Coppell's history, government, economics and city organizations. This program is designed for community members who want to play an active role in Coppell's future. Participants will be challenged and engaged by emerging and existing leaders who come from a diverse array of professions and passions.

 Since the program's inception, Leadership graduates have moved on to serve as mayor, city council members, boards and commissions members, and as knowledgeable leaders in their own respective neighborhoods and organizations. While the intent of Leadership Coppell is to benefit the greater Coppell community, our participants benefit in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses as well.

 Participants of the program, make powerful connections and develop key skills for business and community success. Individuals new to Coppell obtain an in-depth understanding of the community that outside of the program, could take years to acquire. Long-time residents deepen and broaden their understanding of Coppell and benefit from access to community leaders. Retirees seeking the opportunity to re-engage in the community can jump-start their volunteer career as well. 

Applications can be found on our website here and must be submitted no later than January 5, 2018. Submissions will be reviewed and an acceptance announcement will be shared with eligible participants by January 12, 2018. 

Leadership Coppell has a $150 tuition fee which includes all of the materials for your participation in the program. Each day of class will include one morning session (8:30 am-noon) and one afternoon session (1:00 pm - 4:30 pm). There will be 14 sessions total and participants are allowed to miss 2 sessions during the semester in the event of scheduling conflicts.​ A graduation ceremony and reception will be held in conjuction with the Tuesday, May 22 City Council meeting.
