“Metropolitan Pima Alliance’s goal is to participate, educate and influence public policy and decision making for Metropolitan Pima County. MPA leads the charge in facilitating dialogue between members of the development community with those in the public-sector. Unique to the region, MPA is an alliance of business, government and non-profit organizations. MPA’s goals directly relate to improving our region’s quality of life and economic vitality and to that end, MPA strongly believes in the positive participation and contributions of the private business sector working in collaboration with local jurisdictions.
As part of this mission, MPA’s members include representatives from both sectors. The MPA Board is made up of prominent business leaders from a variety of development sectors from planning to banking. As such, our meetings and events are well-attended by an impressive group of people including elected officials, local governmental staff and individuals from a variety of private-sector industries. Our members are relied upon to contribute expertise in their respective fields to fulfill MPA’s core goal to create sensible community planning solutions. MPA offers a variety of events in which networking and sponsorship opportunities are offered.” (from their website, http://www.mpaaz.org/.
