A Seat at the Table Oct 26, 2018
Collaborative Conversations, lead by Jason Smith

A Seat at the Table is an initiative of the Bozeman Area Community Foundation and Future West with support from a committed steering committee. This initiative is shaping up to be the largest and most diverse opportunity for civic engagement in Gallatin County’s history.

A Seat at the Table brings together citizens from all walks of life, all across the county, to share ideas and find ways to make Gallatin County a more connected, engaged, and successful community. The results will be exciting new relationships, elevated civic conversations, and genuine pathways toward collaborative action – outcomes that make our communities more connected, resilient and resourceful. More specifically, Gallatin County, Bozeman, and Belgrade are all now creating new growth policies – the big picture, long range vision, goals, and strategies for their future. The results of A Seat at the Table will give the leaders of the three local governments much more diverse, broad, and rich public input than they would otherwise have.

Come be a part of the Gallatin Valley's future!
