The Voice of East Valley Business

Who We Are

Who We Are

The East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance is a coalition of several Arizona East Valley Chambers of Commerce seeking to represent the interests and needs of the businesses within the region. We are among the largest business advocates in the state.

Each year, EVCCA produces two reports on the legislative session, the first of which establishes legislative positions, and the second which rates legislators on their positions. The EVCCA also has their own lobbyist, Tom Dorn.

We seek inform members of bills that will be on an upcoming ballot an their projected effect. Business owners in the East Valley need to be informed on issues that can hurt, or benefit their business and take action accordingly.
