Getting Involved

Industry Partners

Participating in The Connective means committing to become an innovative region that intentionally collaborates on issues that impact the quality of life and well-being for all residents and businesses.

The Connective will be funded through public, private, university and grant funding. Funding will directly support research, training, testing, data management activities and Greater Phoenix branding. 

Industry partner membership will require a minimum three-year commitment.

Community Partners

Each Greater Phoenix community partner is requested to make a pledge to support The Connective for multiple years in order to enable multi-year, community-driven research projects. Each Consortium member will have representation on the Smart Region Leadership Council.

 

To foster regional participation, some communities may also elect to participate as an observer for no cost but will not have voting privileges nor access to training programs. Observing cities will be able to participate in cooperative procurement but will not receive additional benefits.
