CivEx Live

Civic participation and leadership are perennial topics for good reasons. The quality of civic leadership affects everyone, and anyone can become a civic leader.

Arizona Civic Exchange—CivEx—is a unique experience designed for Arizonans who want to be more involved in civic life.

CivEx Live offers in-person, nonpartisan, interactive events for businesspeople, candidates, public officials, and other Arizona residents to learn about and discuss current issues.


Presenters at CivEx Live include consultants, scholars, and practitioners from a variety of perspectives who are experienced analysts and keen observers of politics. The events are designed to include significant discussion among participants.

CivEx Live’s ideal participants are individuals from any perspective and experience who want to deepen their commitment to public service, grapple with complex problems, and explore different viewpoints.
