Arizona Grantmakers Forum members kicked off the new year to hear insights into the 2017 legislative session from Chris Herstam, principal and chairman of government relations at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie. A former state lawmaker, Herstam provided a high-level look at key public policy issues and leadership shifts that will drive change at the Arizona Legislature.
Please Note: This program was only offered live. Because Mr. Herstam shared his candid views on politics, policy issues and the key players who drive them, AGF honors his request not to video record his presentation.
