2.Sutherland President a New Member of Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee

Sutherland Institute President Paul T. Mero was recently appointed by the Office of the Governor to serve a four-year term on Utah’s Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee of the Office of Recovery Services.  Mero will act as a representative among diverse interests on child support issues in the eleven-member committee.  The Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee provides advice and makes recommendations to lawmakers for the benefit of the general public.

“Sutherland Institute has made significant strides to understand Utah’s child support system,” said Mero.  “This appointment will allow us to further our committment to make Utah a better place to live, work, and raise a family.  I hope to play a constructive role in guiding our State on this important issue.”


3.We’re Moving, but Staying in Downtown Salt Lake City

Due to the downtown redevelopment and company growth, we are moving our office. While we will miss the extraordinary view, we are excited to move to the Crane Building, closer to the highway, more convenient parking for our visitors, and more space to accommodate our growing staff and programs.


Effective Monday June 11th, 2007, our new address will be:


Sutherland Institute
Crane Building
307 West 200 South, Suite 5005
Salt Lake City, UT 84101


Otherwise, our contact information will remain the same:


Telephone: 801-355-1272
Fax: 801-355-1705

We hope you will stop by and visit us at our new location.
