Dear <<First Name>>,

Spring is in the air!  Well at least in sunny Tucson! So much to be thankful for in this corner of the world.

I'm thankful first for the opportunity to introduce our newest board member to you: Greg Reese of Picture Rocks Travel! Greg and Bryan Bell are long-term members of the Chamber and avid travelers. We are very happy to have Greg on board as part of the board!

Thank you also to those who have participated in our inaugural Coffee Club, our way of getting to know each other better in a casual non-business way. Post your pictures to the Chamber 411 on Facebook so we can see who is meeting who! Getting to know each other is a great way to learn about a that person/business--and a great way to generate referrals! And if you haven't joined the Coffee Club yet, you can join at the next breakfast or online (details below).
We have had some members ask about how to be a better ally to the GLBTQIA community. On our main Chamber Facebook page I have reposted a National Geographic documentary about gender. Katie Couric does a great job learning about the gender spectrum with interviews and stories across the nation. Having a basic understanding of gender definitions is a good start to being an ally. Share it with your friends and colleagues so more people can have the basic understanding of gender. Thus when you have more clients of gender variation who say who they are, you will not be surprised or feel it to be so different.
Remember that our Out and Abouts are the first Thursday of each month! Each of the hosts puts a lot of effort to put together a great event so come and have fun and network. This is also a perfect opportunity to bring a fellow business guest to check us out!
