Kimber Lanning, Founder and Executive Director, Local First Arizona
Ever wonder why is it so important to buy locally? Or how are local foods more sustainable? These are only a few of the very important questions Kimber will answer. Under her leadership, Local First Arizona has mushroomed to nearly 2,500 members and has expanded to every corner of Arizona. Lanning works extensively with city and state policymakers to create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs of all sizes. She works to inform, educate, and motivate consumers to support local enterprises, and encourages public policy that enables locally owned and operated businesses to thrive. I have witnessed her in action more than once and she is a force. You will not want to miss this one. This show sponsored by Discount Cab.
