Palace Think Tank

The Palace Think Tank is a volunteer committee of community professionals who are committed to the growth and revitalization of the Capital Region. The committee serves as a sounding board and generator of unique ideas supporting current Palace activities, identifying new and creative methods to grow and expand services, building relationships with our business community, and supporting development efforts and collaborative partnerships with other arts organizations in Albany.
