A Word from Our 2017 Chair of the Board

"It’s truly an exciting time to be a part of the Glendale Chamber of Commerce as we celebrate our 90th Anniversary and receive third-party accolades for the organization’s success.  The upward momentum of more than 1,200 Chamber members working together, combined with the City’s explosive growth, is inspiring. 

By staying true to our mission, the Chamber continues to offer our members business benefits and social networking opportunities, along with other services and programs – all focused on the goal of improving the economic environment. In addition, the Chamber’s ability to innovate and adapt to the needs of businesses allows everyone involved to flourish.  It’s this sense of community that’s making an impact and fostering opportunities where businesses and communities can prosper.  

Lastly, working with Robert Heidt, President and CEO, the Chamber team, as well as our impressive board of directors, I simply couldn’t be in better company. Their support, and undying enthusiasm of the entire Chamber, has me looking forward to the year ahead."
