Joseph HowellDear <<First Name>>,

The Chamber has been growing by leaps and bounds this year, and we are very excited about all the new members joining our fantastic long-time members. The Tucson Pride parade and picnic were a wonderful opportunity to get to spend some time getting to know you all. Thank you to everyone who came out to join us!

We have had a lot of requests for a third monthly event in addition to the Out & About and breakfast, and it's happening! Ben Hernandez of Intuit and Cindy Gonzalez of First Credit Union are hosting a Pokemon in the Park event for members and guests. And Don Winfield of Up & Running Computer Services is organizing a series of group bike rides. You too can host an event! If you have an idea you want to share, you can post it in the Chamber's 411 Group on Facebook. (All members should have access to that group. Let us know if you don't.)

Also on our website, you will see event listings from the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation and Pima Council on Aging. Any member can add an event to our calendar by logging in to the Chamber website

Speaking of events, we are looking for your feedback about the timing of the Out & Abouts for next year. Please take a quick moment to complete our Out & About survey to help us know how to best serve you. 

If you're a member, consider adding a Hot Deal or Event to the Chamber website. Let the community know how to connect with you! 

Yours in service, 
B. Joseph Howell
Board President

P.S. Remember that everyone can now RSVP for Breakfast and the Out & Abouts through our website! If you are a member, you can either log in with the email we have on file for you or just enter it on the registration page.
