Cancelled: Pints and Policy: KC Mayoral Candidates Discuss Nonprofit Issues

Thursday, April 25 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
125 East 31st Street, Kansas City, MO 64108


*Thank you for your interest in "Pints and Policy." The program is currently SOLD OUT, but we do have a wait list. Please click "Register Now" to be added to that list.**

On June 18, Kansas Citians will elect a new mayor to lead us into the 2020's. With this comes challenges and opportunities for our area, including the nonprofits who serve this community.   

The nonprofit sector represents 12% of the GMP of Kansas City, Missouri, more than the manufacturing, telecommunications, and construction industries. Nonprofit Connect is proud to host a forum with Jolie Justus and Quinton Lucas, the final two candidates for mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, moderated by Kristi Wyatt, former Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Programming with the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Please join us, and bring your ideas and concerns as we hear what the candidates have to say about the issues most important to our sector.

We'll begin with a networking happy hour from 5:00 - 6:00 PM, then transition into a forum discussing issues important to the nonprofit sector of the Greater Kansas City area until 7:00 PM. 

When registering to attend, you will be able to submit a question for the candidates. We will try to get to as many nonprofit-submitted questions as possible within the time allotted.
