Current Chair: City of Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord
How do I become an Ambassador?
If you are employed with one of our member communities or with an investor participating at the silver, gold or platinum level, you can sign up as an ambassador today.
What will I do?
Ambassadors can tour regional companies and other assets in the area, attend new company press conferences and receptions, attend events with national site-selection consultants and engage in workshops about local policy, Arizona economic development and the region in general. These opportunities and others will equip you to become an ambassador for the region, where you will help educate policy makers, citizens and media about key regional economic issues.
For those who want to take their membership to the next level, an elite group of ambassadors called certified ambassadors serve as an extension of the GPEC team. Ambassadors can become certified in less than one year.
