November 2016

President's Corner

Yeesh, next week is Thanksgiving, can you believe it?  Before you know it 2017 will be here – is it me or is time just flying by?

Tomorrow is our monthly Member Benefits Meeting.  It’s from 10:00 am to 11:30 am here at the Chamber Office.  If you have the time, you should stop in and learn about all the benefits the Chamber has to offer that are included in your membership.  Our Chamber’s focus is helping you grow your business. Stop in and see what we can do for your business.

Our Ambassador Committee is about to undergo some major changes; both in what the committee does for the Chamber and what the Chamber does for the committee members who invest their time.  If you want to be part of one of the most dynamic committees the Chamber has, you should be here at the Chamber office from 11:30 to 12:30 tomorrow (Thursday 11/17).

SAVE THIS DATE!  Thursday, December 15th the Peoria Chamber of Commerce is taking on the forces of evil from the North Phoenix Chamber and the Phoenix Metro Chamber at our member Laser Quest in a combined mixer/battle to the death.  Laser Quest is located at 3335 W. Peoria Ave, Phoenix 85029 (SE Corner 35th Ave & Peoria) with the event beginning at 5:00 pm.  There is no cost for Chamber members and only $10 for non-members.  This is a great way to expand your business network, meet new people and make some new friends.  We will keep you posted as the date gets closer.
