Education Forum
The Chandler Chamber of Commerce has been a champion of higher education policy through its efforts in supporting endeavors to improve student success outcomes, offering scholarships and enacting workforce development strategies that better prepare workers to compete in the global economy.  The Education Forum is an informative breakfast featuring speakers discussing education hot buttons.  It is the Chamber’s duty to be the catalyst that links the agendas of business, government and education to ensure that the workforce of tomorrow is both stable and well-schooled by first educating the business community.  If the business community does not help to supply the resources to provide a progressive and educated workforce, it will deplete its supply of qualified workers.
