PARCA Roundtable

PARCA supports Alabama’s next generation of leaders.

The PARCA Roundtable was established in January of 1998 to give young civic and business leaders the opportunity to study issues and government policy in Alabama in conjunction with the research conducted by the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama. The Roundtable exists to increase the involvement of its members in seeking solutions to the state’s problems.

Our members believe that civic leadership means responsible citizenship; it means being a leader who proactively seeks knowledge of community issues in order to contribute to their solutions.

The Roundtable meets quarterly with public officials and other leaders to learn about and discuss issues currently affecting the state and local governments. This provides information they need to make informed decisions that strengthen their connection and commitment to their community. It helps them participate in the public life of a community in a better informed, committed, and constructive manner, and understand that civic leadership is education in action for the common good.

The Roundtable is a membership-based organization with an annual nomination process. For more information concerning PARCA Roundtable membership, call 205-726-2972 or email Marci Smith.
