National Policy Roundtable

The National Policy Roundtable convenes the executive directors of policy-oriented national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and HIV/AIDS organizations and the national co-chairs of policy-oriented national associations of local and state organizations semi-annually for two days of discussion, strategic thinking, information sharing and development of collaborative projects.

The Task Force’s Policy Institute has convened these meetings since 1997. The Roundtable is the only time and place that so many of our movement leaders come together. Its scope is unprecedented in our movement. Over the last several years many good discussions, ideas, joint collaborations, and strategic projects have been developed and launched at the Roundtable.


  • Strengthen relationships between national LGBT organization leaders.
  • Brief LGBT organization leaders on policy issues of common concern.
  • Strategize about pending challenges to the LGBT movement and mechanisms for response.
  • Generate collaborative efforts among national LGBT organizations and associations.
