On Friday, December 1, 2017 the Metropolitan Pima Alliance celebrated its 20th Birthday. The significance is that ATB works very closely with MPA on various policy issues as well as our very own Executive Director, Ramon Gaanderse, was their first full-time hire in 2005. Current Executive Director Amber Moore Smith as well as all previous Executive Directors emceed their annual Common Ground Awards dinner as they recognized projects over the past year that overcame significant collaboration in our community. Also, joining as emcee was Michael Guymon who is now with the Sun Corridor. It was a great evening honoring and recognizing projects including the Proposition 101-Invest in Tucson 2017 campaign as well as the Sabino Canyon bridge.
