The Chamber is the primary voice of business in the community working with local and state policymakers on issues that improve our regions business environment.
While businesses are busy creating jobs and driving our economy, they deserve to have a strong voice representing them in public policy conversations. The Chamber puts the business community at the table, working alongside government officials and community partners on ways to eliminate barriers to economic growth. We help public officials – and the public at large, when necessary – understand how businesses would be affected by particular policies and try to bring a fiscally responsible, community-minded perspective to policy negotiations.
The East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance is a coalition that includes Chambers of Commerce from Apache Junction, Queen Creek, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale and Carefree Cave Creek Chambers of Commerce.
The Alliance represents the interests and needs of the businesses within the region. We are among the largest business advocates in the state representing over 5000 businesses.
Each year, EVCCA produces two reports on the legislative session, the first of which establishes legislative positions, and the second which rates legislators on their positions. The EVCCA also has their own lobbyist firm, The Dorn Policy Group.
