 Leadership Update

As we come upon the one year anniversary of the Arizona Sustainability Alliance, it seems like as good as a time as ever to reflect on where we came from and where we are going. I do not believe that a year ago we had any idea 1. How much this organization would grow 2. How quickly this organization would grow and 3. What a wonderful community would have been created as a result of volunteers dedicating their time to improve Arizona.

Thank you from myself and everyone on the Board for the time and effort that you have put in. We are excited about the year to come. We have a lot of wonderful projects in the works – solar swings, reducing food waste, creating a youth tree nursery, adopting a new park, and so much more.

Every new volunteer that joins AZSA brings with them the energy and enthusiasm that shapes who we are. We encourage you to get involved with one of our projects, reach out to our priority leaders, and help us think more creatively about how to solve the sustainability challenges that Arizona faces.
