Businesses Have the Advantage

H

Helping the community plug in to available resources, the Tucson Metro Chamber keeps members connected. In fact, the Chamber is the connector of leaders and inf luencers, a catalyst for business growth and a champion for a stronger community.

The Tucson Metro Chamber is made up of 1,500 companies and associations, with approximately 70 percent of those members being small businesses. The Chamber champions for its members to develop a sound economic environment where businesses can be successful and jobs created. The Chamber achieves these goals by representing local businesses at the local, state and federal levels of government, supporting businessfriendly initiatives and promoting the metro area. And for those looking to know more about the community where they live, work and play, the Chamber hosts numerous events throughout

the year. These events help members make new contacts, gain exposure for their products and services, connect with local community leaders as well as forge long-lasting professional relationships. The Chamber also is a strong proponent of workforce development and talent attraction and retention. Helping individuals become workforce ready, the Chamber is leading workforce development efforts connecting students with internship opportunities, identifying employer needs and fostering vital collaboration between educators and private sector businesses and partners. Taking workforce development a step

further, the Chamber also helps business leaders stay ahead of trends and skills needed while also building future leaders. One way they do this is by leading the Emerging Leaders Council and working with the Greater Tucson Leadership program. Investing in Chamber membership enables members to have a strong support system and achieve together what cannot be done alone, such as advocacy. The Chamber supports public policy measures that promote economic expansion: promoting pro-business legislation, funding for education and career and technical courses and working throughout the entire region on longterm business sustainability issues like infrastructure improvements. The Chamber also ensures that its

members’ interests are represented in elections by evaluating public office candidates, promoting elected officials that support local business and ensuring all goals are met through the political action committee. Likewise, the Chamber represents members at city council and county board meetings, schedules business leaders to speak at these meetings and hosts public policy forums all in an effort to grow public/private partnerships. With the majority of members being small businesses, the Chamber boasts several resources for these companies to succeed, including an online help desk, monthly workshops, member roundtables and a diverse number of events hosting 15-1,000

business-minded individuals. Each year the Chamber also shines the spotlight on Southern Arizona’s local small businesses, honoring them for excellence and achievements at the Copper Cactus Awards ceremony. On top of that, the Chamber is the place to turn for tools that help small businesses and startups meet their goals. The Chamber will always be the champion for businesses, as growing business builds the community. p By Sarah Lancaster

Nestled quaintly in Southern Arizona, Tucson is home to a wide variety of people, businesses, arts and cultures. The metro area spans even farther with just over 1 million residents. What started out as an Indian village tens of thousands of years ago has transcended into a 21st century metropolis, capitalizing on more than 310 days of sunshine, alive with job opportunities, a wealth of products and services, entertainment and innovation, with welcoming people. 14 Tucson Metro Chamber

Eclectic Downtown Downtown Tucson offers an abundance of activities, businesses, delicious restaurants, artwork and nightlife. Best of all, the Tucson Streetcar offers transit to and from many destinations downtown with affordable fares connecting you to the University of Arizona. Downtown is made up of four districts, each boasting a dose of culture and unique flair. Everything anyone could possibly dream up can most likely be found in Tucson’s eclectic downtown.

Outdoor Adventure

For outdoor aficionados, Tucson is THE

place to be. Situated along the Sonoran Desert, five mountain ranges encompass the area creating hiking trails for all levels. Likewise, nearly 1,000 miles of bike paths placed Tucson on Bicycling magazine’s top cycling cities in the nation for multiple years. Golfers also have their share of greens from which to choose, with more than 40 courses throughout metro Tucson. For a game of golf with a twist, try Topgolf Tucson. The Chuck Huckelberry Loop is a system of paved pathways that are ideal for biking, horseback riding, walking or skating.

Diversity in Education The Tucson metro area has worldrenowned colleges and universities, and public, private and charter schools that prepare students, no matter the age, for the workplace and beyond. Home to two high schools that rank in the top five nationally, Arizona’s policy allowing school choice enables parents to choose the school culture that fits their family. Once students graduate high school, and for adults looking to earn a degree, they have access to the University of Arizona and Pima Community College.

Access to Quality Health Care When residents are feeling under the weather, they have access to some of the best physicians, specialists and nurses in the nation. From emergencies and surgeries to maternity and pediatrics, hospitals and clinics throughout the region provide patients with exceptional medical treatment. The University of Arizona and Banner University Medical Center have formed a partnership for research and teaching up-and-coming medical professionals. The University of Arizona Cancer Center gives those battling various forms of cancer a place to seek treatment close to home.

Affordable Diverse Housing

The Tucson area is known as one of the most affordable places to live on the West Coast. Speaking of living, Tucson boasts great curb appeal and diversity in home lifestyles. Residents can choose an urban lifestyle downtown or live on several acres in the metro area. Renters and homeowners will find apartments, a diversified range of single-family abodes and condos all within price range, no matter the budget or style.

Looking for a unique find or the latest food trends? Twenty-three miles of Mexican food is just one example of how Tucson embraces food. Foodies in search

of a nice sit-down meal, or something on the go, have their pick of American, Mexican, Italian and, of course, Southwest fare, among many others. The foodie craze is so alive and well in Tucson that UNESCO designated the locale as a World City of Gastronomy.

Southwest, including Native American, Spanish, Mexican and American heritages. The arts are also appreciated throughout the metro area. In fact, American Style Magazine ranked the city as No. 20 of its top 25 arts destinations list for big cities, and the Wall Street Journal has named it a mini mecca for the arts. These accolades are all bestowed with good reason, as Tucson boasts more than 200 artistic groups, over 30 regional museums and its own ballet, theater, opera and symphony companies.

In 2017, Tucson was designated as a IFEA World Festival and Event City and with good reason. This honor is bestowed to communities that show the best leadership, and festival and event partnerships. There is never a shortage of ways to spend some down time in greater Tucson. Most weekends (and some weekdays) have events and festivals taking place. World-renowned events such as the La Fiesta de los Vaqueros Rodeo, Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and El Tour de Tucson bring visitors from all parts of the world. Specially themed events during holidays, parades, street fairs and celebrations of Tucson’s culture are just a sample of the hundreds of events that people flock to each year.

In order to sustain long-term economic growth, a community must continue to change with the times. The Tucson metro area is experiencing a wealth of growth and innovation across many sectors, including aerospace and defense, mining, technology, manufacturing and health care.

Tucson is extremely military friendly and a hub for aerospace and defense industries. In fact, the region is home to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Fort Huachuca and the 162nd Fighter Wing of the Arizona National Guard. After nearly a decade, Tucson’s industrial market is nearing where it was prior to the recession. This can be seen in the warehouse, distribution, manufacturing and aerospace and defense sectors especially. Raytheon, which specializes in defense, civil government and cybersecurity, is currently expanding in Tucson, while Amazon recently announced its plans to open a facility

at the Port of Tucson. The 850,000 square-foot-plus-facility brings 1,500 jobs to Tucson. These employees will pack and ship small items, such as books and electronics, among others. Moreover, Caterpillar relocated its regional headquarters to Tucson, bringing with it 600 executive jobs. On top of that, Hexagon, an international mining tech firm, relocated its North American headquarters to downtown Tucson, giving the city a jolt in economic prosperity. Health care is also blossoming in this portion of Southern Arizona, as Community Health Systems and Northwest Medical Center are

looking to recruit top talent in the area. Likewise, Geico is constructing a new regional office in Tucson, which will add 700 positions. In order to sustain this momentum, and recruit even more business, community stakeholders must remain involved. As one of the top-ranked research institutions in the nation, the University of Arizona ensures that it’s on the cutting-edge of the latest trends in bioscience and technology. Tucson is home to two of the most innovative bioscience entities in the nation. Critical Path Institute participates in research and educational programs that assist the Food and Drug Administration with developing safe new drugs. BIO5 partners with scientists from a variety of fields to solve significant biological issues. Moreover, Tech Parks Arizona creates the “Interactive Ground” that generates, attracts and retains technology companies and talent in alignment with the research, mission and goals of the University of Arizona (UA). Tech Parks Arizona directs the UA Tech Park at Rita Road, a 1,345 acre campus, and is developing the UA Tech Park at The Bridges, a 65 acre campus off Kino Blvd and 36th Street. The tech parks offer assistance with product development and business incubation, a lab, office facilities and access to the

Making The Grade from Kindergarten to College

From learning ABCs to earning a MBA, students of all grade levels have direct access to some of the best schools in the country. Public, private, charter and higher education institutions are all available in Tucson.

The district offers a well-rounded education to its elementary, middle and high school students, creating an environment that nurtures each child socially, intellectually and, of course, academically. Early childhood education sets the tone for a child’s overall learning experience, and at the district, all elementary and kindergarten through eighth grade schools offer full-day kindergarten instruction.

With a mission to prepare its students for far-reaching success in the workplace and higher educational pursuits, the district’s career and technical education classes help scholars obtain the skills they need for the 21st century. CTE courses include agribusiness, automotive, business, communications, construction technology, culinary, engineering, health sciences and human services.

ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS Our Creative Behavioral Recipes Workshop teaches parents and teachers how to use the principles of ABA to strategically improve children’s daily activities. This workshop uses the unique dynamics surrounding each child to create an individualized behavioral recipe. In Session 1, parents and teachers explore what they want for their child and become proficient in information gathering.

Session 2, parents and teachers use the information gathered to design their individual behavioral recipe and put it into action.

Finally, in Session 3, parents and teachers share progress made and refine their behavioral recipe, as well as learn about scientifically based teaching strategies. We understand that there is no one right or wrong way to parent or teach, which is why we work alongside parents and teachers to help them develop behavioral strategies to improve children’s daily activities

DISCOVER AMPHI: Excellence Amphitheater Public Schools is celebrating 125 years of excellence, dating back to 1893 when the District was founded in a five-room adobe schoolhouse and named after the five mountain ranges that surround the city of Tucson like a “beautiful natural amphitheater.” Today we have grown to 21 schools, nearly 14,000 students, and more than 2,000 employees. We offer a comprehensive and demanding curriculum aligned with current state standards and teach the skills students need for the future, including creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. We know that educating a child is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking. Our teachers and staff work with parents and students to ensure each child has opportunities to grow and excel in all subject areas, for example: • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education at all grade levels, from K-12 • Fine arts courses in art and music offered at all levels • Advanced courses such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate Programme (IB), and Cambridge Academy

in Education

Career and work-based learning through Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses • Outstanding athletic programs and extracurricular activities • Preschool instruction to build a solid foundation for learning during ages 3-5 Our district is fortunate to enjoy wonderful support from the Tucson community. These connections are a critical role in supporting the work in the classroom and we have developed many partnerships and programs that enhance our academic offerings. We also offer a great working environment and have a legacy of strong Amphi traditions. We are proud of our dedicated support staff, teachers, and administrators that are committed to student learning and excellence in education. Most importantly, what sets our district apart is “The Amphi Family” – a climate and culture built, like any family, on collaboration, caring, and a child-centered environment.

Patients, community served by TMC’s membership in the Mayo Clinic Care Network When complex medical problems arise, patients often feel more reassured when they are able to obtain a second opinion. As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, that process is easier at Tucson Medical Center, allowing physicians aligned with TMC to engage Mayo Clinic experts in electronic consults. Nurse practitioner Karen Narum said such consults have typically been performed on complex cases, including those struggling to make a decision about treatment, such as a patient who was trying to determine whether to pursue chemotherapy. “Patients really appreciate it and feel a bit more at ease when they can hear a recommendation from additional sources of expertise,” Narum said. The Mayo Clinic Care Network,

which TMC joined in 2015, is an international network of health

care organizations committed to better serving patients and their families through collaboration. The network provides stronger connection between those physicians aligned with TMC and the more than 4,500 physicians and scientists at Mayo Clinic – while patients continue receiving care as close to home as possible. “As an independent nonprofit community hospital, TMC has a long history of building collaborative relationships that enable us to better meet the needs of our community,” said Judy Rich, TMC’s president and CEO. In addition to serving as a clinical resource through sharing best practices, our care network membership has provided an opportunity to serve the broader community as well. For two years in a row, TMC

has worked in collaboration with Mayo Clinic, to offer a Survive Well: Living with Cancer Symposium, free to patients and families living with and overcoming cancer. Hundreds of community members – from those in active treatment to those who are recovering - have attended the broadbased symposium, which includes discussions with well-respected speakers as well as opportunities to learn more about specific cancers and about overall wellness approaches and techniques to deal with the stress of these diseases. Tucson Medical Center has been recognized in the Arizona Daily Star’s 2017 Readers’ Choice awards as the “Best Hospital,” as well as having the best women’s center, best emergency department, best pediatric emergency department and best surgical weight loss center. It has also earned certification as a Great Place to Work, in part by constantly seeking ways to help staff members update their knowledge in the fast-paced world of health care.

The Loop spans unincorporated Pima County, Tucson, South Tucson, Oro Valley and Marana, connecting parks, trails, bike paths, restaurants and several other attractions. The Loop is ideal for all, whether you travel on foot, bike, skates or even horseback. Moreover, Tucson is THE place
