NCoC’s 66th Annual Conference to be Held in Arizona

By convening the 66th Annual National Conference on Citizenship in Arizona, NCoC hopes to bridge the conversation between local initiatives and national needs.
Partisanship, unemployment, public debt, national security, immigration, health care -- these are the vexing issues that dominate our headlines and shake our trust. Understanding how these and other issues shape the psyche and engagement of our fellow citizens is exactly why Congress chartered the National Conference on Citizenship more than half a century ago.

We are pleased to announce the 66th Annual National Conference on Citizenship will be held on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe on Thursday and Friday, September 22-23, 2011. The Conference will be held in partnership with the Center for the Future of Arizona (CFA). This will mark the first time NCoC’s Annual Conference will be convened outside of Washington DC.

A request for proposals from prospective partners was announced in the fall of 2010, and CFA was selected from ten semi-finalists from across the country.

“Through development of community initiatives, corporate citizenship programs, and citizen-driven dialogue and engagement, CFA demonstrates exemplary thought leadership in areas central to civic engagement across America,” commented NCoC Chairman Michael Weiser. ”Current events in Arizona afford a compelling opportunity to discuss the role communities everywhere can play in addressing and solving problems.”

“By convening the 66th Annual National Conference on Citizenship in Arizona, NCoC hopes to bridge the conversation between local initiatives and national needs. We are committed to work with our partners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to encourage the engagement of all Americans,” commented David B. Smith, NCoC’s Executive Director.

Further details on the meeting are forthcoming and registration will open soon, but please save the date now. We hope you will join us for this exciting event.
