Message from the CEO


MarkOn behalf of the Board of Directors of your Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce you to the many opportunities available by becoming a client (member) of our organization. We support the City of Scottsdale, tourism, economic development, and every other area that supports businesses – not only in Scottsdale, but in the region, and the great state of Arizona. We were founded in 1947 before the incorporation of the city, but our goal continues to be the growth and enhancement of business in Scottsdale.

We do that in many ways by focusing on business connectivity, economic development, workplace development, education and public policy. We work closely with the City of Scottsdale and state of Arizona to make sure that your “voices” are heard and to get the attention of our leaders.

This year our Chamber has set in motion a new vision for our future together. Our Strategic Plan, entitled “Scottsdale Chamber: Vision 2020” is really your plan. We sought and received analytical, objective and subjective input of almost twenty-five percent of our 1,100 businesses.

The growth and success of your Chamber is made possible by the dedicated and committed support of existing client/members, in addition to what I consider to be the best staff in Arizona. I hope that you will take the time to find out more about the client/membership benefits we have to offer. This new vision is exciting, client and community focused, and one that will create the value that you need to justify involvement with your Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce.

Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at We look forward to a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.

Thank you,
