    It's coming! The 11th Annual International State of the Metro featuring a walking dinner with wine at DIRTT that features globally-minded leaders in business, government and in the community, coming together for a discussion of how we're doing.... and what's next.

    Jeanine Jerkovic at City of Surprise (2nd from left) will provides the annual report card, and government and business leaders will share their opinions and outlook at our annual signature event. We're sharing global news, challenges and opportunities for companies based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

    Other speakers include leaders in City Council Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela... both announced candidates for Mayor of Phoenix!

    And in addition we're honored for our CEO/President speaker to be Maria Elena Gallego of Collectron International (right).

    Thank you to our sponsors... Collectron International, DIRTT and Tommy Bahama (Kierland)... for again providing a special gift basket!

    Well before Global Chamber was founded, this was an event we did annually... and 10 years ago plus 2 months our FIRST EVER event was with Rod Miller of GPEC providing his insights on Phoenix Metro. WOW - have we come a LONG WAY!

    Join us by signing up HERE!

    As usual, members are free, and non-members pay a nominal amount to hang out with the global tribe!

    Thank you to Qinqin and Tucker Quayle for hosting a large delegation of University leaders from China in Phoenix this week. Some of the delegation is shown at left at the opening reception held at Paradise Valley Country Club.

    Thank you to the Arts & Education Committee of Global Chamber Phoenix for helping to arrange local connections with ASU, Grand Canyon University, Maricopa Community Colleges and University of Phoenix.

    And thank you to our members who participated - all of whom have connections to China in their businesses and personal activities.

    Global Chamber is dedicated to creating and supporting the connections for companies and communities to be more successful. 

    The conversations here were exciting! Filled with technology and business opportunities. One example was a Phoenix-based firm with significant R&D activities at ASU - and discussions centered on joint materials opportunities - in energy, battery development and more.
