In 1985, he served as chairman of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce.
"It's a great honor to have Senator Jon Kyl joining us at AEI," said AEI president Arthur C. Brooks. "Over a distinguished twenty-six year career of service to the people of Arizona, first in the House and then the Senate, Senator Kyl has gained great insight into America’s global role. I am delighted that he will be leading and endeavor that I, Ambassador Marilyn Ware and the entire AEI community believe in wholeheartedly: Rebuilding a new vision and commitment to American greatness."
