#1 When Students Choose a Career in Construction, Our Members Win
Last week over 3,000 middle and high school students attended the annual Southern Arizona Construction Career Days event. The primary objective of this event is to show students the different jobs in the construction industry and plant a seed about the opportunities a career in construction offers. Unless more students choose this path, our members will struggle finding labor to build houses, office buildings, retail centers and everything else we need as a community.

An event like SACCD is only possible through the support of our member volunteers. Thank you to each and every SAHBA member who lent a hand to make this a huge success!
#2 Tucson Elections: Romero Wins Mayoral Race, No Surprises in City Council Election and Prop 205 Goes Down Big
Ward 1 Council Member Regina Romero (D) easily won the election over Ed Ackerley (I). Time will tell how the outcome effects the home building industry but SAHBA has a positive relationship with Romero and we are aligned on ensuring housing affordability. Replacing Romero is Lane Santa Cruz (D) who worked on her staff.

In Ward 2, Council Member Paul Cunningham won a race that was never in doubt. In Ward 4, Nikki Lee cruised to victory. She is an Air Force veteran with experience in IT project management. Proposition 205 (Sanctuary City) would have put millions of state and federal dollars at risk and was defeated overwhelmingly. 
#3 Improve Your Business Acumen, Attend Lunch & Learn
In an effort to help our members get more familiar with key legal issues facing small businesses, SAHBA and Arizona Construction Trades (ACT) teamed up to host a “Lunch & Learn” series. We’ve partnered with local law firms (who are also members) to talk about effective solutions to your legal issues. The meetings feature great content and an opportunity to ask questions.

Don’t miss the next one on November 21st - "Protecting Against Employee Fraud"
