Well Arizona is finally on the futurist map. Our good friend and futurist ally, Joan Foltz, has taken the initiative to start an Arizona chapter of the World Future Society.
This is big stuff. To get things rolling there will be a Kick Off this Monday, October 26, 2009, from 6:30-8:30 PM at the University of Advancing Technology,
2625 W Baseline Rd, Tempe, AZ (I10 & Baseline, next to the Point at S. Mountain).
Those planning to attend, please RSVP by email to AZWFS@alsekresearch.com.
Here is more on the event from Joan:
Meet and Greet other Arizona futurists at the first organizational meeting of the Arizona Chapter of the World Future Society. Come join us to discuss the AZ chapter’s future plans for events that will include speakers, open debates and discussions, workshops, and more. The meeting is open to anyone interested in all aspects of the future.
Phoenix has an active futurists’ community that we hope will help us make this a vibrant gathering for everyone in the membership, plus reach out to the local community. Besides being a venue for insightful discussions, our intent is to introduce futures studies foundation concepts used in future thinking, strategies and methodologies for people to use in their professional and personal lives.
Since we are in early formation, your input on how to make this a successful, active chapter will be very welcomed. Interested in participating in the chapter’s organization? Please Come.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE!!!
