Improving Our Future

The Southern Arizona Leadership Council is working together to create prosperity and a high quality of life for our community.

COVID-19 Information: SALC’s community partners, the Tucson Metro Chamber and Arizona Commerce Authority, have websites providing COVID-19 information, tools and guidance on business finance support, workforce assistance, essential infrastructure information, supply chain and logistics, housing and community volunteer opportunities. These sites will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.

Bringing Resources Together

The Southern Arizona Leadership Council attracts leaders who care deeply about our community and are willing to commit their time and resources to create positive change. We believe a successful community relies and builds on all of its resources including civic and business leaders, government officials, and engaged citizens.
