Alabama's Third Century
In 2019, Alabama celebrated two centuries of statehood. In 2020, we embark on our third century. What can we be? In the first 200 years, we moved from cotton, coal, and iron to autos, aerospace, and biotechnology. We labored, and we labored to overcome the discrimination and divisions that marked our first two centuries. Now, can we recreate our frontier as a landscape of opportunity for all, of excellence in education, where we live longer and healthier, where we compete for the national championship of creativity and innovation?
Join us as we explore ambitious and strategic investment in how the people of Alabama can remedy complex issues that have haunted the state since 1819 and make our state welcoming, competitive, vibrant, and fair—long before we celebrate our tri-centennial.
Join us for our 2020 Annual Meeting and help articulate a vision for our next 100 years.
