Today, the Apache Junction Chamber partners with federal, state and local entities, community organizations, and the business community to create an environment that is attractive to positive economic growth and opportunities. With the support of our members, the Chamber will continue to represent their interests, develop programs that give value to their membership, and give members the needed support that allows them to grow and prosper. In the early 1960s, a flourishing business community was forming along the Apache Trail. In June 1960, the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce incorporated for the purpose of “fostering and promoting social, economic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and civic interests of the area of Apache Junction, Pinal County, Arizona, and its trade area.” As with most Chambers of Commerce, business leaders felt the need for representation as a business community, and for a group to promote the then-unincorporated community of Apache Junction. It doesn’t get any better than this. In the shadow of the majestic Superstition Mountains, the Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce represents a diverse group of businesses located in a varied geographic region extending east of the metropolitan Phoenix area in Pinal County.
Celebrating 50+ years in operation, the Chamber offers benefits and advocacy for over 450 Chamber members. Serving the areas surrounding Apache Junction, the Chamber facility also houses the Apache Junction Visitors’ Center. This Arizona Office of Tourism designated visitor center accommodates over 30,000 visitors annually while receiving thousands of phone calls, and distributing information for relocation and tourism throughout the world.
The Apache Junction Chamber is focused on giving the business community the opportunity to affordably advertise and network while advocating for business on a local, state, and federal level. The EVCCA (East Valley Chamber of Commerce Alliance) represents more than 7,500 member firms from the Ahwatukee Foothills, Apache Junction, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Tempe Chambers of Commerce. Its purpose is to provide coordination and to advance the common business interests in the East Valley.
We would like to thank our current members for their support. If you are a non-member, please consider joining. We are committed to making Apache Junction a great place to live, work and prosper.
