Accepting Applications for New Executive Welcome Program

Are you new to Southern Arizona?

Have you been recently promoted to an executive position?

Do you need to upgrade your understanding of the social, economic and political systems that make Tucson and Southern Arizona tick?

Are you looking for a way to volunteer/give back/pay it forward, or want to have an entry point into becoming more involved in our dynamic community?

New Executive Welcome (NEW) is an immersive two-day educational experience that gives you an insider’s look at Tucson, Pima County and Southern Arizona. NEW is an ideal “crash course” in the systems that shape our community, our economy and our culture. NEW builds a solid foundation of community awareness and connections for business professionals.

Upon completing the program, you’ll have the knowledge, tools and enthusiasm to become a better executive and better community steward. NEW will provide you a “back of the house” learning experience you could not duplicate in many years on your own.

In two days, a series of local experts, representatives from key organizations, political leaders, civic leaders and stakeholders
provide a deep dive into our region’s issues, affairs and character. Topics presented include:

• Southern Arizona history and demographics
• Economic development
• Political systems
• Education
• Arts and culture
• Regional planning
• Social systems
• Education
• Downtown revitalization

You may be new to our area or new to your executive position, but there’s no reason to behave like a newbie. NEW is instant awareness and instant connectivity.
