Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce

So, what do you want? Seriously. What do you want for your business or career, your family, your neighborhood, your community? That’s the question the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce asks thousands of people every year. Well, everyone usually tells us their want or need without us having to ask. Business owners, tourists, students, working parents, career-minded professionals and everyone else knows the Southwest Valley Chamber is the go-to place. We have the answers to questions, solutions to problems, and ways to help people get what they want.

It all starts with good people supporting the Southwest Valley Chamber’s vision as the leading voice of business and regional prosperity. As chamber members, they want to expand the reach of their business, interact with other professionals, and be seen as a community influence through their association with the chamber. Our members do business with each and watch out for each other. It’s the relationships created and the camaraderie between like-minded people that attracts many to the chamber of commerce.

Because of the caring nature of its members, one of the best services the Southwest Valley Chamber offers to everyone in the community is the online calendar. Any organization, group, club or person holding an event in the four-city area can post their event free. Club meetings, fundraisers, festivals and fairs are some examples. There literally is something happening every day. See what’s happening at southwestvalleychamber.org.

We’re a state-designated visitor information center for tourists, people relocating to the one of our four cities, and year-round residents. Nearly 5,000 people stop at the Southwest Valley Chamber office every year. It’s a great place to find out what’s happening, where to find local products and services, and get answers to any question.

Our primary focus is support and services for local and regional commerce. I’m very excited to tell you about a new offering. Starting in February, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will have regular hours at the Southwest Valley Chamber office. It’s a huge opportunity for you to take advantage of SBDC services. Details and appointment scheduling are online at southwestvalleychamber.org.

The Southwest Valley Chamber has an amazing internship program for high school and college students, is active at the State Capital with government affairs and public policy on behalf of business, offers training classes for business owners and professionals, produces and participates in many community events, and much more.

Stop by the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce office to learn what’s in it for you and the reason why it’s always a great day in the Southwest Valley!
