Today's Quarterly Forum is Tomorrow's Civico.

Exciting new changes are coming soon!

In 1999, Quarterly Forum (QF) was founded to provide a place for emerging executives to dream more, learn more, do more and become more while coordinating civic activities amongst its members.

Today, our mission is to educate, inspire and connect the next generation of community leaders from the public, private and social sectors who together will build new levels of leadership capacity for future generations.

And in 2019, big changes are coming. While our mission will remain the same, the future of the organization is more exciting than ever. Check back soon for updates and announcements.
