November 9, 2012 - GPEC Increases Offer from 50 to 100 California CEOs

The Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC) recently launched a program called the California 50. In essence, we invited the first 50 qualified CEOs who contact us an exclusive, complimentary one-on-one tour of the Greater Phoenix region. The reason we did this was simple -- voters in California had just passed Proposition 30, which will not only increase the state sales tax by 0.25 percent, but also increases the personal income tax rate on incomes over $250,000.

Due to the tremendous response over such a short period of time, we've extended that offer to the first 100 CEOs who contact us with interest in learning more about the Greater Phoenix market.

Know a company or CEO that may be interested in participating? Forward details about our program and tell him/her to contact Barbara Miller at 602.262.8632 or bmiller@gpec.org for more information.
