An Exciting Time For AUIA


This is an exciting time for AUIA. We have a new name, a new vision and mission, a new website, and boundless enthusiasm to advocate for investors and investment in Arizona.


Under our new banner as the Arizona Investment Council and through our expanded mission, we aim to ensure Arizona has a strong and sustainable infrastructure - today and tomorrow. After all, Arizona is the nation's fastest growing state and our ability to maintain our vibrant economy and lifestyle will depend on how well we plan and invest in critical infrastructure - energy, water, communications, and transportation systems.


You should also know that AIC will continue to intervene on behalf of utility investors in critical cases at the Arizona Corporation Commission. But, we will also be active in other venues, working with Arizona's policymakers, regulators and business community to resolve Arizona's critical infrastructure issues.


In the coming weeks and months, I will be reporting on activities AIC has underway, including a major study of future infrastructure requirements and a regulatory best practices white paper. AIC is also planning at least one major event on a topical issue in 2007, so stay tuned for more and check back at this website often for the most current information.
