Economic Development Agenda

Successful communities can become complacent communities. Increasingly, cities find themselves in a competitive environment for the attraction and retention of strong businesses. Scottsdale is no exception.  Home to many established and larger corporations, Scottsdale is also a hotbed of entrepreneurship and small business, the backbone of any economy.

The Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce advocates for:

  • Quality development and redevelopment
  • A business-friendly environment
  • High capacity transportation
  • Economic and job growth
  • Community improvements
  • Enhancements to quality of life

Advocacy recommendations flow through the Chamber’s Public Policy Advisory and Economic Development Advisory Councils, open to any Advantage and Partner Council level members, to the Board of Directors which takes formal action on issues of importance to the business community. Many of these issues are addressed at the Chamber’s annual economic development symposium, Scottsdale Forward.
