About the Event
Road to the 2020 Census
Census data affects the distribution of over $675 billion in federal funding and also determines how many members represent a state in the House of Representatives and the Electoral College. Jayne Black, United States Census Bureau, will provide a brief history of Article One of the US Constitution, the census to count every person in the United States every ten years.

The Evening Conversation event is designed to bring differing, and potentially contentious view points to the table, while allowing a civil and engaged audience into the conversation. Our aspiration is that during the dialog portion of these Evening Conversation events, Members may disagree without being disagreeable and in keeping with those values, zealous advocacy will be embraced, as long as such advocacy is civil, responsible, and reflects City Club’s mission. We ask guests of this Evening Conversation to be mindful of others during the engaged dialog bound to occur during these conversations, and beyond. Our hope is that this intimate setting will open the doors for even more engaged citizenry in our community around relevant and difficult topics to be presented.
