the future of the community engagement network of utah

UServeUtah’s statewide listening tour and municipality surveys identified a gap in regional peer connection regarding community engagement. This proposed initiative serves to bridge that gap by establishing a professional association to develop & support individuals interested in advancing community engagement in their organizations. The network will come together regularly to interact with each other, learn together, build relationships, develop a deeper sense of belonging, and encourage mutual commitment.

The Community Engagement Network of Utah will launch statewide in 2022. Regular meetings and networking events will be hosted in the following regions:

Bear River Region

Box Elder, Cache, and Rich counties

Wasatch Front Region

Weber, Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake and Tooele counties

Mountainland Region

Summit, Wasatch and Utah counties

Uintah Basin Region

Daggett, Duschene, and Uintah counties

Six County Region

Juab, Sanpete, Millard, Sevier, Piute and Wayne counties

Southeastern Region
