Civil Society is a moderated discussion exploring significant issues confronting our society. Its name reflects our focus on the nonprofit sector and engaging the sector’s and its participants in “civil” discussion of the significant issues with which it and society faces.

By advancing civil dialogue and greater awareness of the critical role nonprofit organizations play in our communities, we honor the passion, persistence, and life changing results of those who make our community stronger, more inclusive, and more vibrant.

Produced by the Center for Nonprofit Studies, Civil Society exists to offer the opportunity to learn more and participate in continuing discussion of the topics we are addressing – through our website.

Barry Silverberg and Lisa Bussett, CNS Director and Coordinator, are co-Executive Producers; All programs utilize ACC television studios and staff, to record and broadcast the shows.
