EAG Guiding Statement:  The EAG will support a culture of high expectations for all students, in and out of school, from early childhood to postsecondary education, leading to career success.

Join us for a very special Education Affinity Group meeting!  

We wish for everyone to help us set the future direction of the Education Affinity Group though our facilitated planning session.  

We’re pleased that Stacy Baier (formerly Carlson) of the Pinellas Education Foundation, will be facilitating this crucial session. Plan to participate!  Your voice is important to EAG's plan. 
The education policy landscape is constantly changing and philanthropy’s voice must be heard.  During the EAG Fall Convening we'll set the EAG policy course going forward.  

Where should our efforts be focused?  

Where can philanthropy have the greatest impact?  

How should we engage policymakers? 

These and many more probing questions will be asked. You don’t want to miss this very important conversation.
