We join Tom Slater’s family in grieving his death on Saturday, March 17, 2018. Tom’s love of life and his fellow humans was embodied in State Public Policy Group, the company he founded in 1984. Tom was an inspiration to many, concocted dozens of innovative solutions to state, community, and issue interests and worked with organizations to implement and manage their own change. You can just hear him say that, I’m sure!

Tom was active at SPPG until his retirement in December 2015, and stayed connected to many staff and issues until his death.

Many of you may have your own memories and stories of Tom. We certainly do, and we treasure the teacher, mentor, and creative genius he brought to SPPG and to those with whom he worked.

According to family, visitation will be on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, from 5-8 pm at Westover Funeral Home, 6337 Hickman Road in Des Moines. Funeral Services will be at 11:00 am on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 2926 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines.

Only YOU can change public policy!
