A message from the Director
Thank you for your interest in the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce. By becoming or being a member of the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, you are committed to help build a better business for yourself, your family and your community. As a member of the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, not only do you help drive the local economy, you are helping to shape policy and practices for future generations.
This Chamber is one of a handful of Chambers across this great Country of ours that is fully member funded. That means we do not take funding from the City, the County or the State, therefore, there is no intervention in advocacy or lobbying efforts on your behalf. We go to work for you with Local, State and Federal officials to keep government out of your business and work to minimize onerous regulation on you and your enterprise. Your Chamber of Commerce exists to help improve your business.
Members with the highest satisfaction of the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce are the most participative. The Monthly Good Morning, Yuma! breakfast held on the second Thursday of the month boasts attendance of over 150 dynamic professionals. This breakfast is the single largest networking event in Southwestern Arizona. The after-hours monthly mixer, held the 4th Wednesday of the month consistently gives the host a huge boost to their bottom line. Even our Ribbon Cuttings have turned into social events!
I realize how precious your time is, so we have expanded the opportunities to participate in your Yuma County Chamber of Commerce. These range from attending our twice monthly events, attending any one of our committee meetings, sitting in on a Board meeting, e-mailing us with your ideas and concerns or simply reading BIZ, a monthly publication by the Yuma Sun, which features articles about the chamber, new members, renewals, and events that have been held.
It is my honor and privilege to serve the businesses of Yuma County, Arizona. I welcome your thoughts, ideas, letters, and most importantly, your involvement with the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce.
John Courtis, Executive Director
