History of Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce For more than 125 years, the Greater Phoenix Chamber has evolved to meet the needs of the business community. Today, the Chamber is a strong pillar of the Greater Phoenix region.
Beginning in 1888 Although Arizona was not yet a state, leading business owners in the Valley of the Sun organized the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce on November 13, 1888. The Phoenix Chamber originally spearheaded efforts towards attracting more settlers to the Valley, building a railroad to tap the rich forest country to the north, building better roads and supplying accommodations for those who traveled here for the winter sunshine.
Through over 120 years and a couple of name changes (it was known as the Phoenix Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce from 1973-1987 and became the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce in 1998), the Chamber has never wavered from its original mission: to help area businesses succeed and make the Valley a better place in which to live, work and do business.
