VENUE CHANGE NOTICE:
Please note that the venue for this event has changed from what was originally planned and posted on our website. The Correct Venue is the Tucson Metro Chamber at 465 W. St. Mary's Road. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Engagement in advocacy and public policy, both at the local and federal levels, is no longer an option as issues impacting nonprofits are ever increasing, and the need for well-informed and engaged leaders and communities is critical to the furthering of our missions. The Alliance formed a statewide Nonprofit Policy Council several years ago to better engage and unite nonprofits on important issues facing the sector, and this group still convenes monthly to discuss and work on state and federal policy issues. We are currently working to expand the voice and representation of this group to truly reflect the diverse, statewide audience and community we serve.
We invite you to join us as we expand to the Southern Arizona region with our first in-person public policy roundtable in Tucson. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the Nonprofit Policy Council work, receive an update on current local and national issues, inform our upcoming 2018 legislative agenda, and to engage in meaningful conversation with your peers, Alliance leadership and Policy Council volunteers.
Our goal will be to form a group of nonprofit leaders in Southern AZ that can participate remotely in our monthly Nonprofit Policy Council meetings, as well as engage in discussion and work with their local peers through in-person meetings in the region.
To learn more about the Nonprofit Policy Council visit ArizonaNonprofits.org/PolicyCouncil.

Cost: Free to attend, but RSVP is required. Light lunch will be provided.
