Who We Are

It’s time to create a stronger, more innovative, and more inclusive Tucson economy. We lead today, not tomorrow.

We make Tucson a better place for young professionals to live, work, and play through professional events, mid-career development, and advocacy initiatives. By being the unified voice of our region’s young talent, we are bringing new ideas and perspectives to help Tucson experience positive development that benefits all.

Our members are aged 21 to 45, ranging from prominent community leaders working to elevate Tucson to mid-level transplants trying to dig their roots in a new place to fresh faces, straight out of college and preparing for the road ahead. What unites all of us is a belief in the power of collaboration and the ambition to both grow and lead.
