Members of The Dallas 40 believe it is imperative to learn more about important community issues by “drilling down” into a subject … listening to, learning from and interacting with those who are leading the way. Our speakers, all prominent in their own spheres of influence, address our meetings to educate our members on these issues and to enable them to influence the direction of our community based upon informed choice. By providing entree to circles of business, professional and community leaders, The Dallas 40 affords its members and invited guests the opportunity to engage the community’s best and brightest in a dialogue that makes a difference. The Dallas 40 is a nonpartisan organization, with membership open to men and women of all ages.

What Residents of Dallas Do – and Don’t – Care About

What do residents of Dallas value about our city? Why do we live here? What is – and is not – important to us? Are we optimistic about the future of our city? What issues matter most to us when we vote? Is the north-south divide a concern? Do we worry about competition from the suburbs?

A survey commissioned by The Dallas Morning News and conducted just weeks ago is very illuminating about the opinions and attitudes of Dallas residents about these issues and more. Please join us for a presentation by Tristan Hallman, City Hall Reporter for the Morning News, who reviewed the survey’s results, interviewed city leaders and residents about their views, and recently published an article in the Morning News on this very important topic.
