Groundwork 2012: Free Legislative Town Hall for Nonprofits
Center for Nonprofit Management

June, 2011

On Friday, June 24, 2011 the Center for Nonprofit Management will host "Groundwork 2012: Legislative Impact on Nonprofits" a FREE Town Hall Session to discuss and prepare for the challenges nonprofits will face in light of unprecedented budget cuts.  The session will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. at Communities Foundation of Texas at 5500 Caruth Haven Lane, Dallas.  Funding for the session is provided by Citi Foundation.


With the special session of the 82nd Texas Legislature now underway, it is important for nonprofits to understand what effect the impending budget cuts will have on funding and the need for services. History tells us that when government has withdrawn programs and funding, the nonprofit sector is often left to pick up the slack and fill in the gaps left behind. The Town Hall session will help to provide information about upcoming changes and allow for questions and answers from attendees.


The Town Hall Session Panel will include representation from:

  • The Legislature - Texas Senator Royce West, District 23
  • The Philanthropic Community - Brent Christopher, President & CEO, Communities Foundation of Texas
  • The Business Community - Debbie Taylor, SW Regional Director & TX State Director- Community Development, Citi
  • The Nonprofit Perspective - Jason Sabo, Senior Vice President of Public Policy, United Ways of Texas
  • The People - Larry James, President & CEO, CitySquare


Moderating the panel will be Cynthia B. Nunn, President, Center for Nonprofit Management.


This session will be held on Friday, June 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Communities Foundation of Texas, 5500 Caruth Haven Lane, Dallas, TX 75225-8146.  Thank you to the Communities Foundation of Texas for their generous support in providing the space for this session. The session is FREE but registration is required.  For more information or to register for this event, please visit or call 214-826-3470.
