Welcome to the annual Chandler Chamber of Commerce Business and Relocation Magazine! It is my pleasure to present everything that is awesome about Chandler. Not only will we share exciting and informative articles about our fabulous city, but also the many benefits of being a part of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce.
This year, the theme of our magazine is “Where Business Meets Community.” We found this to be extremely appropriate as it is the 30th anniversary of The Ostrich Festival. The festival began in 1988 as a tribute to Chandler’s rich history with the quirky bird. Chandler has gone through many changes over the years, but one thing remains the same: The Chamber’s dedication to bring business and community together. The Ostrich Festival is a wonderful event that does just that. For three days, a multitude of our small businesses set up shop at the festival and have the potential to reach over 100,000 attendees.
The Chandler Chamber strives to encourage and support local economic growth be it a small startup or stakeholder corporation. I’m pleased to say that the Chandler Chamber is as committed as ever to our valued members and their businesses, as well as creating a cohesive community.
As the proud president of the third largest Chamber in the state of Arizona, I am truly fortunate to spend my days working with a talented and dedicated staff, an amazing board and a group of supportive and enthusiastic members. I hope you enjoy reading this backstage pass to all that is Chandler and I look forward to continuing to work with and encourage local business for many years to come.
