Policy Impact Series

The Chandler Chamber works hard to cultivate and maintain excellent working relationships with elected officials from the City Council to the U.S. Senate -- regardless of party affiliation. As a politically active Chamber, we believe a strong, collective voice from our business community is essential to aid elected officials in making policy decisions that are in the best interests of Chandler as a whole. We represent the business interests of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and large corporations operating right here in Chandler.

Our Public Policy Series is aimed at just such ideals. It is a chance to hear from our elected officials and industry experts on a range of issues that impact our community, businesses and beyond. The Public Policy meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of the month in an intimate setting that allows for deep discussion on all issues presented. Your attendance is encouraged as this is a rare opportunity to hear directly from decision makers while having your voice heard.
