All staff at organizations in the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities network connect and collaborate with one another, share solutions, and discuss emerging trends through various Alliance Peer Exchange (APEX) groups.

Members of APEX groups can seek out specialized advice from peers throughout the country via the online collaboration portal myAlliance, conference calls and webinars, and in-person meetups and roundtable events.

Always evolving, APEX groups are created based on member interests and priorities, and they are supported by Alliance staff liaisons. These groups revolve around shared professional disciplines, roles, and organizational characteristics. Current APEX groups are:

  • Advancing Equity
  • CEOs (closed to only chief executives)
  • CFOs/finance executives
  • Chief Legal Counsel
  • Educational success
  • Fundraising, marketing, and communications
  • Health and human services intersection
  • Human resources
  • Performance excellence

All staff at Alliance member organizations may join APEX groups as a benefit of membership.
