The Glendale Star
The City Council unanimously approved a three-year contract with the Glendale Chamber of Commerce for the city’s Chairman’s Circle Membership and general support services at a cost of $20,000 per year.
The city is a long-standing member of the chamber, which was established as part of the Glendale business community in 1927.
The chamber is a private, nonprofit, membership-driven organization whose mission is to serve the business community, provide programs and services to improve the economic environment, and serve as a reliable source for community information and business referrals.
Since October 2013, when current Chamber President Robert Heidt took over leadership, the chamber has grown from 475 members to more than 1,200, becoming one of the largest in the state of Arizona.
