A Word from Our 2016 Chairman of the Board

"I am looking forward to this year as we welcome the start of 2016. The Glendale Chamber will be moving forward in some very big ways, including welcoming our 1,000th member! The Chamber has grown dramatically over the prior two years and is now poised to achieve this significant membership milestone.

The Glendale Chamber offers significant value to all of us as members. The obvious things are in purchasing benefits, insurance benefits, and many opportunities to network in a social setting. But the Chamber is far more than all of those benefits combined. It is a voice for the business people in our community. The greatest benefit for all of us who are engaged in the “business of business” is to have an advocate the size of the ever-growing Glendale Chamber of Commerce on our side as we make progress to our goals together in 2016.

I look forward to spearheading that advocacy, along with Robert Heidt, our Chamber team, The Board, and all of you as we seek to make Glendale “the preferred business destination location” in 2016!

The very best of wishes to us all."

- Jeff Blake, 2016 Chairman of the Board, The Blake Group
