The Flinn Foundation created the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership in 2010 to fill a gap it identified in the state’s civic-leadership assets. Although quality leadership-training organizations existed at the local and regional level, no entity worked specifically to address state-level civic leadership or to strengthen civic leadership statewide. The Arizona Center for Civic Leadership has three components that work to foster civic leadership throughout Arizona: the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy, co-sponsored by The Thomas R. Brown Foundations in Tucson; the Arizona Civic Leadership Collaborative; and a public outreach and communication effort.
In addition to the Center news releases below, our regularly updated blog, Civic Leadership Conversation, provides news about civic leadership in Arizona and beyond.
We invite you to subscribe to our email newsletter, Civic Leadership News, and we hope you will connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
