The Alliance for San Antonio Missions is an open membership organization. We don’t all think the same things, but we do share some common interests and concerns. We are also committed to moving this public conversation forward in positive ways, with transparency.

You don’t have to be a resident of San Antonio to care about the Missions and be involved in preserving and promoting awareness of this heritage. If you share our interest in protecting the Missions and local communities by advocating for smart development, please support this effort by joining the Alliance.

If you would like to be counted as a member, you can join by filling out the form below. You will then receive occasional updates and notice of all meetings via email. (Your information will remain private and we will not request money.)

Yes, I want to join the Alliance for San Antonio Missions.

For the very latest news and information, please follow the Alliance on Twitter and Facebook.

The Alliance works by discussing ideas during public membership meetings, and then deciding on proposed actions with the help of a voting working group that reports back to members. An elected Secretary serves as a primary contact point for communications. The Alliance is also assisted by an advisory committee (in formation).
