Membership Information

What Every Member Receives

• Tax Deductions: Your membership fees are 99% tax-deductible (consult with your tax accountant).

• Representation in the Halls of Government: The Chamber works directly with the Arizona State Legislature as part of the East Valley Chamber of Commerce Alliance, the state’s largest business lobbying organization. Therefore, Chamber members benefit from the strength of many. From paid lobbyists at the State Capitol to strong and productive relationships with city elected officials and staff, your Chamber fights for legislation and ordinances that favor your business.

• Website Listing and Business Referrals: Averaging 2,500 hits per month, the Chamber website is a one-stop shop for business referrals. Your 25-word description and additional keywords help you be found when anyone searches for products or services. We include a map to your business and links to your business website and social media pages. You are just a few clicks away from a new customer.

• Certificates of Origin: Doing business overseas? Your Chamber provides free required certificates of origin for our members. Non-members are charged $50.

• Communication: Monthly emails keep you up to date with the more than 200 annual events and committee meetings, providing you with the opportunity to choose the best events and programs for you and your business.

• Social Media: Life moves fast these days, and the Chamber is active on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to stay connected with you. Do you promote businesses on your social feeds? If so, include that fact in this description.

• Complimentary Admission to AM Connect and PM Connect: Whether you are a morning person or an evening person, if you want to meet other business professionals and enhance your business network, our free connectivity events are perfect for you. Varying in format and structure, our networking events attract a broad cross-section of business professionals.

• Special Member Rates for Events: Non-members rarely get the rates that members get when attending any paid event. Member pricing gives you a greater value.

• Member Orientation: Held every other month, these events introduce new members (and re-educate existing members) about everything the Chamber has to offer. As you add new employees, send them to the Know Your Chamber Orientation so that they can utilize the Chamber and optimize your investment in your Chamber membership.

• Ambassadors Committee: A great way to get known in a hurry, join the Ambassadors Committee and greet guests at events, ribbon cuttings and call on new members to help get them accustomed to the Chamber.

• Member to Member Discounts: Members often offer each other exclusive discounts in our Member Marketplace.

• SCORE Business Counseling: Access free business counseling from seasoned business executives who are standing by to help you with business planning, franchising, marketing, funding, copyrights, patents, and technology and information systems.
