Is your networking group the right-fit group for you? Looking for a new start? Try Tucson Connect, a Business Networking Referral Group. This is networking with a new perspective. Unlike other business networking groups, we do not insist on tracking leads/referrals or absences. What we do offer is an atmosphere where Connect members can really take the time to learn about one another so as to provide the best possible support.

Tucson Connect is focused on making your networking experience enjoyable with insightful speakers, interactive discussions, and opportunities to develop relationships with quality business professionals that are decision makers.

Something magical happens when we share ideas of like-minded business owners who are up to big things.

Tucson Connect is genuinely interested in introducing new people and learning new things, so our events include guest speakers who are recognized as leading authorities with insightful information aimed at professional and personal development.

Members are also encouraged to share their expert insights in the latest developments in their industry to strengthen our network.



Join us for our first ever, virtual Tucson Connect! Susan Pisano from East End Business Consulting and Elizabeth Lopez, CPA, will be discussing the financial options you have to keep your employees and SBA Loan options due to CVOID-19.

Nothing is more important than your health and safety, and the need to protect those most vulnerable to the coronavirus. This is why we have decided to take steps to minimize health risks by cancelling the Tucson Connect Networking event 3/17/2020. Our next meeting will resume on 4/7/2020. We understand these times are difficult and a little crazy right now, we are here to help so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

I am a native Tucsonan, attended TUSD schools, Pima and UA. Have lived in a variety of places but, happily, always return to Tucson. I have a variety of interests including digging in the dirt, dining out as much as possible, snow skiing 30-45 days a year, donating my time to various entities including ABA (Arizona Builder’s Alliance) NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) and THE EVENT 2020 and, in my spare time, working diligently for ARCpoint Labs of Tucson and not necessarily in that particular order!

Connect was created by three Tucson business owners who wanted to bring a new concept to networking.

Bobbi Still, Affinity for Design, co-founder says,

“I wanted to belong to a networking group devoted to helping my company grow with other like-minded business owners. I visualized a networking atmosphere where individuals were being supported, not tracked for their performance in growing the group. That is why I am proud to say, Connect does not have a membership fee, rather, a marketing fee dedicated to marketing your business to others.”

I believe that an impactful agenda focused on relevant business topics and quality activities will attract other like-minded business owners. Together we will learn and grow!
