2018 Board Annual Meeting and Summit on Topics

Prior to the 2018 Annual Meeting convening on June 8 at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix, a Board orientation for new Board members will convene from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.  The full Board meeting will convene from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 am. All Board members are encouraged to attend both meetings.

Following the Board meetings, we will convene the Annual Luncheon and Summit on Future Topics from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and the Topic Selection Panel Discussions and wrap-up from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Participants will hear from expert speakers for multiple topics which Arizona Town Hall members will discuss and vote on as the topic for 2020.

The topics for consideration and their presenters are:

  • Workforce Development: Darcy Renfro, Chief of Staff, Maricopa Community Colleges District
  • Healthy Communities: Jon Ford, Director, Strategic Initiatives, Vitalyst Health Foundation
  • Civility in Public and Private Discourse: Carolyn Lukensmeyer, Executive Director, National Institute for Civil Discourse

Community Town Halls will also be held before the statewide Town Hall on the chosen topic. These smaller sessions will convene across the state in order to capture input from Arizona's many diverse communities. Reports from the Community Town Hall sessions will be compiled and included with the background materials to further enrich the discussions at the statewide Town Hall. 

Criminal Justice is the topic chosen for 2018.

The topic chosen for 2019 is Child and Family Services.
