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 web site is a one-stop-shop for business referrals. Your 25- word description and additional SEO 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.

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.

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.
