We provide a collective voice and forum for advocacy and education of non-profits in Mesa County
The newly formed (2015) Community Impact Council is a merger between the long-standing Human Services Council (HSC) and the newer Community Impact Network (CIN).
Our Mission: To provide a collective voice and forum for advocacy and education of non-profits in Mesa County.
Our Vision: Ensure the sustainability and positive impact of non-profits in Mesa County through education, advocacy and collaboration.
Our Goals: Developing connections between agencies and the community at large through:
- Education and training
- Collaboration and networking
- Advocacy and sustainability
The Community Impact Council encourages partnerships with a broad coalition that fosters collaborations among organizations providing services and education in Mesa County and those business and governmental organizations that support them:
- Participate in a unique forum to network with other community organizations on projects, events and funding opportunities.
- Access to venues and tools to update other agencies on new programs, events, and changes.
- Receive information pertinent to creating effective programs, organizational efficiencies, and better policies and procedures.
The Community Impact Council is proud to build on the foundation of the Human Services Council and excited to explore new opportunities in our community for the local non-profit sector.
Our Keynote Speaker is Stephen Black, JD – Founder of Impact Alabama and Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility. Mr. Black is the grandson of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo L. Black and founder of Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility and Impact Alabama, an award-winning nonprofit that pairs college students with structured service projects to promote learning and leadership development.
Mr. Black will be hosting a training after the breakfast from 10:00 to 11:30

Staff members and volunteers should find themselves immersed in a community where job tasks are only one part of a deeper process of developing commitments to a shared vision of the common good. Leaders can easily find themselves immersed in implementing various tasks, but without continuing to invest in a vision narrative, your team’s commitment and growth will suffer. This session will discuss some of the tools and strategies
