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 group meets with public officials and other leaders to learn about and discuss issues currently affecting the state and local governments. The Roundtable exists to increase the involvement of its members in seeking solutions to the state’s problems.

The Roundtable is a membership-based organization with an annual nomination process. For more information concerning PARCA Roundtable membership, call 205-726-2482 or email Marci Smith.
