Under new leadership, the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce piled up a “big plate” of initiatives in the past year, from an array of new small-business programs to the recent establishment of a “super PAC” to boost political advocacy.
Those initiatives will only accelerate in the coming year, Chamber Chairman Bruce Dusenberry told members and other attendees Tuesday at the chamber’s first-ever “chairman’s luncheon,” at the Manning House.
“The chamber in the past year really has had a big plate – we’ve got a great many initiatives we are trying to get done,” said Dusenberry, president and CEO of Horizon Moving Systems.
