You are cordially invited to participate in an upcoming Focus Group to assist the Arizona Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism with the development of a new 2013-2015 State Service Plan for Arizona. The Focus Group will be approximately two hours in length and will provide you with an opportunity to share your perceptions, opinions, experience and ideas regarding the current and future state of service and volunteerism in your area and in Arizona. When completed, the State Service Plan will set forth goals, priorities, and strategies for promoting service and volunteerism, determine better methods of leverage our National Service resources to address critical community needs, as well as articulate a plan for strengthening the state’s service and volunteerism infrastructure.
