Sunny Isles Beach Residents’ Academy

Annual Residents’ Academy Begins March 6, 2024

The Sunny Isles Beach Residents’ Academy is a 7-session course that will introduce residents to the operations of the City of Sunny Isles Beach. The Academy will explain the policy process, public service delivery and describe how our local government addresses some of its most challenging issues.

The Academy provides participants with the information, resources, and tools they need to become knowledgeable community members and effective neighborhood leaders.
