Holiday Legislative Reception

This reception is held every holiday season to facilitate communication between Tucson’s business leaders and elected officials. The reception provides the perfect opportunity for Chamber members to “bend the ear” of their city, county, and state representatives just prior to the legislative session beginning in January.



The Tucson Metro Chamber has arranged a series of discussions with Mayor Rothschild and County Administrator Huckelberry called Interface.  Interface provides business owners and executives with opportunities to speak directly to these high level public officials about public policy and doing business in Southern Arizona. Learn the latest about policy decisions and other activities in the City of Tucson and in Pima County. Your questions and concerns are welcome. We encourage openness, transparency and robust discussion.
