The East Valley Chamber of Commerce Alliance, founded in 1999, is comprised of more than 5,500 businesses and seven local chambers: Apache Junction, Carefree Cave Creek, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Tempe. Business leaders representing each association meet monthly. Our purpose is to provide coordination in the advancement of common business interests.
Each year, EVCCA produces a report on the legislative session, which lists bills that have the most significance to East Valley businesses. It reports how each East Valley legislator voted on legislation relevant to the EVCCA. We hold a breakfast in December with legislators to discuss the next year’s agenda, and we employ our own lobbyist, Tom Dorn.
One alliance objective is to inform members of bills that will be on an upcoming ballot and their projected effect. Business owners in the East Valley need not feel helpless about government influence on their business. There is no excuse for ignorance. Each of us has the opportunity and responsibility to understand the issues and to get out and vote.
