The Smyrna Citizens Academy gives residents an opportunity to become civically engaged by building positive relationships with city government officials while furthering their education on the city’s daily processes. Through the academy, citizens will get a behind-the-scenes look at city operations, have a chance to give feedback that may help the city improve its commitment to the citizens, and become ambassadors for the city in which they live, work, and play.

  • City Council and Administration
  • Finance and Human Resources
  • Public Works and City Engineering
  • Community Development and IT
  • Parks & Recreation
  • Keep Smyrna Beautiful and Community Relations
