Executive Director's Welcome

Rose Swan

In these unprecedented times, gathering the Senate Presidents’ Forum (SPF) members together for timely, critical online meetings has been a source of inspiration, support, and consolation. For the past 26 years, the Forum's foundation of trust and cooperation has been able to span all divides and provide a place of honest problem-solving for state leaders, especially in the midst of divisiveness and during the pandemic crisis. Every day, our senate leaders must find practical solutions to these complex problems, working through diverse points of view to find common ground. SPF is a setting that encourages honest discussion and respectful consideration of divergent viewpoints.

Forum discussions focus on solutions based on experiences from other states as well as on the insights of world-class experts. Guest speakers have led Forum discussions on urgent topics such as restoring state economies, safely convening the legislature, guiding the logistics of vaccine distribution, and providing options for those constituents hardest hit by the pandemic. Our sessions also highlight strategies for how senate leaders can facilitate cross-aisle collaboration in their home legislatures to implement optimal solutions.

As new leaders join the Forum, we welcome you into the congenial atmosphere that is a hallmark of the Forum, and urge you to add your voice to our ongoing discussions of solutions to the complex challenges facing all legislators. We trust that the shared insights and mutual support offered at the Forum will help you to lead your states and citizens effectively through these difficult times. It’s a tough job, and SPF creates an oasis of calm, rational discourse to help state leaders succeed in their endeavor to serve.

The entire staff of Senate Presidents’ Forum is honored to support you in your critically important work. I invite all state senate leaders to join us.
