DIVERSE MEMBERSHIP ENRICHES VALLEY FORWARD
Valley Forward's current membership roster includes approximately 250 organizations representing diverse interests and perspectives. They include some of Arizona’s largest employers and some of its smallest, industrial and manufacturing sectors, municipalities and other government agencies, educators, non-profit organizations and Valley citizens.

Through unique partnerships, Valley Forward has maintained an active role in preserving the environment and livability of Valley communities, serving as a forum for public discussion and action on these important issues.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
There are no signs or plaques anywhere saying, "Valley Forward Was Here," but in 36 years of operation, this effective coalition of members has left its mark. From the glass and metal frontage of the government mall to the Rio Salado project and Tempe Town Lake, from the healed scars of the Phoenix Mountains to the ribbons of freeway across the community, from desert preserves throughout the Valley and a planned Light Rail Transit system, Valley Forward has been there.

Major events Valley Forward has sponsored annually are: the Environmental Excellence Awards Program established in 1981 and now co-sponsored by SRP; a Livability Summit designed to promote healthy communities; EarthFest Educators Night, an event that provides teachers with an opportunity to enhance their environmental education curricula; and an Annual Luncheon featuring a prominent keynote speaker.

PROFESSIONAL STAFF
Valley Forward is operated by a 26-member Executive Committee that meets monthly, and a Board of Directors of 59 that meets quarterly. General membership activities are held throughout the year and include: breakfasts or luncheons featuring keynote speakers, Issues Committee meetings, member mixers, tours, special projects and related events.

The organization's staff includes a President, Vice President, Membership Director and Communications Coordinator. Valley Forward’s staff, in partnership with volunteer committees, manages association programs.
