The new statewide AZ529, Arizona’s Education Savings Plan Advisory Committee assists the Treasurer’s Office in promoting and raising awareness of the AZ529 Plan in accordance with A.R.S. § 41-179. The Advisory Committee’s purpose is to increase access to the Plan among all Arizonans, with a special emphasis on economically disadvantaged, minority and underrepresented student populations.

The Advisory Committee members are subject-matter experts in multiple important facets of education and civic leadership, including urban and rural colleges, public and private schools and universities, vocational training and apprenticeship programs. The AZ529 Advisory Committee is the next step in Treasurer Yee’s initiative to help Arizona families save for post-high school educational expenses.

The 11-member AZ529 Advisory Committee, chaired by Treasurer Kimberly Yee, meets on a quarterly basis. The public and media are welcome to attend. Please see the list of the AZ529 Advisory Committee members and their corresponding membership spots below.
