Get Involved


MPA’s committees are a member benefit and an excellent way to connect with people and expand networks. Each committee contributes to the sustainability and effectiveness of the organization.

Public Policy Committee

This monthly meeting, taking place on the 4th Tuesday, is a working committee. It is exclusive to MPA members and provides an opportunity for members to get up close and personal with decision-makers on key issues that may affect them. Each meeting starts with a guest presentation and is followed by an update on current policy issues. Reviewed policy and presentations cover topics from the five local jurisdictions: City of Tucson, Town of Marana, Town of Oro Valley, Pima County, and Town of Sahuarita.
