Almost a year preceding this 80th Town Hall-the beginning of the organization's 40th anniversary celebration-the membership selected the topic of "leadership" as the focus for this session. Perhaps this entire subject was best summarized by one of the student participants when he stated, "Arizona can 'get along' with the leadership that has been displayed over the last few years, but if we want to thrive, to develop into an outstanding state with a quality of life that so many of our citizens desire, leadership must be improved." Leadership is not something that can be legislated. Every segment of Arizona's diverse communities must play an active role in encouraging and developing leadership for Arizona's future-families, those in the education system, broad-based community groups, employers and those in public service. Following are just a few of the recommendations from the 80th Arizona Town Hall that look toward strengthening the state's leadership.
