Gilbert Chamber of Commerce

The Gilbert Chamber proactively serves as the business advocate to strengthen the business climate in Gilbert. 

To support the growth of business, the Gilbert Chamber facilitates the popular Women Empowered program and five weekly referral teams. To advocate for our membership, we host an active Public Policy Committee and hold membership in the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. We keep a pulse on the needs of our membership to ensure the representation at the local, regional, state and federal levels. To raise up the next generation of leaders, we host programs that include Tours For Teachers, Career Shadowing & Mentorship, Interview Skills workshops and more. This year, we welcomed the 31st class to the Gilbert Leadership program. And there is so much more! 

The Gilbert Chamber is committed to representing the interests of our business community, providing access to resources and fostering meaningful connections.

What is your 2023 focus?

We will expand upon much of our current programming. We will continue our advocacy work through our Public Policy efforts and as part of the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance. We aim to launch a Business Academy program to provide solopreneurs, small businesses and their employees with targeted training and resources. To benefit veterans and bring attention to veteran-owned businesses, we will introduce programming that brings together veteran professionals. We will continue to collaborate with our community partners to support business startups, workforce pipeline development, career exploration and more. And we will expand our physical footprint within our community by increasing the frequency of our events and programs in the southern and eastern regions of our community. 

What are the top benefits of membership and/or participation?

Being a member of the Gilbert Chamber offers benefits to both business owners and their employees. Chamber members develop connections with a diverse and valuable network and knowledge base. They grow with, learn from and support one another and the needs of the local community. 

Members have increased access to local leadership; their voice is unified, and their input is valuable. In addition, consumers often view Chamber member businesses favorably with an increase in local reputation. Ultimately, members of the Gilbert Chamber know their interests are represented, they enjoy access to resources, and they have a platform to foster meaningful connections.
