We support MPA and agreed to the 2017 Common Ground Awards title sponsorship because we strongly share the belief that our business community is best served when we work together. Finding common ground isn’t always easy, it’s often though the catalyst for innovation and creative problem-solving.
In my State of the Town Address, I emphasized the importance of community partnerships in building a strong framework for our region. MPA’s Common Ground Award not only recognizes these partnerships, but raises awareness of their value and fosters ongoing collaboration within our community.
MPA made hosting this event easy and the participants all felt it was an excellent value and such a memorable experience. Tour participants learned of the incredible research occurring at the Bryant Bannister Laboratory of Tree Ring Research while experiencing the innovative architecture. We were able to tour the behind the scenes spaces in the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility. Can’t wait for the next one!
Metropolitan Pima Alliance has been one of the best organizations for my professional development. Membership and participation in the board and various committees have helped me form strong professional connections throughout the real estate and development community, which has, in turn, resulted in new clients, friendships, and my personal tribe of people who I can rely upon for advice, referrals, and support.
MPA is a valuable resource for timely and relevant content related to real issues in the development community. We have particularly appreciated the opportunity to interact with a wide range and variety of different stakeholders. MPA events give us the opportunity to understand complex and technical issues that are important to our clients and to our community.
Serving as Chairperson for the MPA Board of Directors has afforded me the opportunity to maximize mentorship opportunities through the many diverse backgrounds of each respective Board member. Those opportunities have pushed me to grow as both an individual and a business owner.
