Experience Matters to honor Dr. Lattie Coor at luncheon

Experience Matters will honor Dr. Lattie F. Coor, founder and CEO of the Center for the Future of Arizona, as its 2015 Change Maker at the second annual Experience Matters Luncheon scheduled Oct. 27 at the Marriott Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley.

Last year’s recipient was Intel Corporation.

Mr. Coors, perhaps best known as president of Arizona State University from 1990 to 2002, continues to expand his service to the community through his involvement in the Center for the Future of Arizona.

His work on The Arizona We Want initiative has captured citizens’ feedback on the most pressing issues facing the state, as well as its priorities for building a better future.

His work to improve education, the economic outlook of the state, and the engagement of every citizen in Arizona’s future has made him worthy of the title “change maker.”

“Lattie’s legacy is still being built as he continually tackles new social challenges,” said Nora Hannah, CEO of Experience Matters.

“He is a pillar of the Arizona community and serves as a constant source of inspiration in his drive to create a better community for us all.”

Founded in 2009, Experience Matters has matched 400-plus people with non-profit organizations, and their skills have contributed over $11 million in resources in Maricopa County.

Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. followed lunch and program at noon.
Individual tickets start at $150 and sponsorships begin at $1,500. To purchase, visit www.experiencemattersaz.org.

Dr. Lattie F. Coor is president-emeritus, professor and Ernest W. McFarland Chair in Leadership and Public Policy in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University, and chairman and CEO of the Center for the Future of Arizona, an independent nonprofit organization he founded in 2002.

Its mission is to create an Arizona in which there are opportunities and quality of life for all citizens, now and in the future.
