The benefits of membership
The Sedona Academy and the Verde Valley Forum for Public Affairs have more than three decades of combined work helping to guide our region's civic, political, business and community leadership in identifying and implementing policies that have helped to shape, grow and improve our region. We have been successful because of our members.
By joining Verde Valley Forum for Public Affairs, you're proclaiming "civil discourse matters." For over 30 years we’ve championed this ideal and we recognize the importance of perpetuating it into the future as our region continues to grow. We recognize that the Verde Valley region is composed of a diverse cross section of people with a broad demographic variety and while each town and city has its own unique identity, we live in a region that has taken on its own separate identity.
We want to continue bringing a broad, diverse cross section of citizens and ideas together along with fact based research to reach consensual recommendations, goals and objectives to improve our region's quality of life for its citizens. The only way we can even hope to accomplish this is with your help.
By joining today you will make a difference and offer input into decisions affecting your community.
Once a member you will be automatically included in the selection pool for Forum participation. You will also be able to help choose future Forum topics. Most importantly, you will join others from across our state who are investing in a stronger future for the Verde Valley region.
