The Alliance for Innovation (AFI) was founded based upon the ideals of a small group of visionary local government leaders that believed in challenging the usual way of doing business. The organizing principle was simple, AFI would connect change makers to accelerate innovation and transform local government.

Of course, the world of today is nearly unrecognizable from our founding back in 1979. With pandemic and economic crises reshaping society, we feel it is more crucial than ever that local governments embrace innovation. But there is more to it than that – this innovation must be purpose-driven, it must be leading to true transformation.
