Arizona's Economy
105th Arizona Town Hall

105th Arizona Town Hall Background ReportRecommendations

As Arizona pulls itself out of the deepest recession that it has faced since the Great Depression, this 105th Arizona Town Hall convened to examine Arizona's economy. In Arizona Town Hall's fifty-two year history, this is the eleventh time citizens from across the state have come together to reflect on the current state of Arizona's economy and how best to shape its future.


Monday's breakfast program was a panel presentation:  "Setting the Stage - Key Facts and Input from Distinct Arizona Communities," which included input from discussions at the Future Leaders Town Hall, Pinal County, Yuma County and Background Report prepared by ASU. You can find summaries of the Pinal County, Yuma County and Future Leaders Town Halls in the Full Agenda.

Monday's lunch speaker on the topic of "How Arizona Can Capitalize on Global Economic Trends" was Dr. James A. (Jim) Crupi, President and founder of Strategic Leadership Solutions, Inc. 

Monday's dinner presentation "Mapping Arizona's Future: Possibilities, Realities, and Risks" was made by Mary Murphy, an officer at The Pew Charitable Trusts, who serves as a principal analyst on Pew's state and local fiscal health initiatives. 

Tuesday's lunch program featured a presentation by the Board Members of Arizona Town Hall. In addition, there was special entertainment by the Northern Arizona University School of Music Students.

Tuesday evening's program featured recognition of the student participants.
