To facilitate and promote business relationships between Tucson, Arizona communities, neighboring states, and Mexico; provide a networking and business development vehicle for members; and make periodic trips to communities to promote commerce.
Why join the Caballeros del Sol?
We all work hard, on the job and at home. We have the stress of running successful businesses, balancing that with our commitments at home and in the community. Like many of our members, we also have joined other civic and networking organizations and breakfast clubs. Wouldn’t it be great to be a part of an organization that has a priority of having fun?
We have met with community leaders including Mayors, Governors, and Congressmen to discuss the Tucson Economy. Each of our members look at each of our trips to see how we can generate business for ourselves, but also to bring dollars to the Tucson Economy. We work with the Metro Tucson Visitors and Convention Bureau, Northern Pima County Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Rio Nuevo Project, and the Mexico Trade Development Commission, among others. We help those organizations by hosting happy hours where community leaders can talk in a social setting instead of stuffy board rooms. We also attend conventions, attend legislature meetings to promote Tucson, and host organizations similar to ourselves that come to Tucson.
Why join an organization that is all work and no play? We get that every day at work. Caballeros put an emphasis on having fun at whatever we do. We have played golf at many of the best courses in Tucson, including Arizona National, Skyline Country Club, The Gallery, Vistoso, and many others. On a recent trip to Prescott, after visiting with local business leaders, we spent the evening at the famous Whiskey Row, and followed that up with a round of golf the next morning at the luxurious Hassayampa Country Club. Being a self funded organization, our schedule is set around what our members want to do. All trips are planned to combine a little business with a little fun.
Caballeros del Sol meets twice a month. The second Thursday of the month is reserved for an hour luncheon, and the third Thursday is generally a trip day. Caballeros del Sol are totally self funded. Financial Responsibilities include $450.00 annual membership dues, and proportional expenses of trip, transportation, hosting dinners and lunches. Golf/Activity and room expenses if needed are the responsibility of the individuals. We also have a standard uniform of blue blazer, blue oxford shirt, and tan/khaki slacks. We buy a golf shirt that changes yearly, as well as a name tag that will be required for all members. First year members can plan on spending around $1,000, including a one time $200.00 administrative fee for joining.
