As the new President and CEO of the Tucson Metro Chamber, my presentation to the Rotary Club of Tucson will be to share my vision for the Chamber as the Voice of Business. The Chamber leads efforts on local policy and one of the proactive areas I will focus on is our Coalition Against Retail Theft and our efforts to develop solutions that reduce theft and property damage so many of our businesses are experiencing. I will also speak to our initiatives that work to create workforce development programs and encourage businesses and companies to engage in the education system to build the skills they need. We launched a Workforce Blueprint last summer that identifies the areas the Chamber will lead to improve our labor and talent strategies.
