We’re not in charge of the weather, but we do impact the climate By Mary Ann Miller, President/CEO While we’ll all enjoy the “Chamber of Commerce Weather” during Spring Training this month, we can’t take any credit for it. What we will take some credit for is having a community that people want to visit, a welcoming place for living and working, and a healthy economic climate for starting and growing a business. For more than a century, the Tempe Chamber has worked to create a strong local economy to help businesses succeed. Mary Ann Miller We offer programs and services to business of all sizes, whether you are a one-person operation working out of your home or have thousands of employees across multiple campuses. We offer educational programs on topics ranging from accounting practices to personal development. Our Coffee Connections provides regular opportunities to share leads. Our Women in Business Mentoring Program teaches the skills to move up in one’s profession. The Business Owners Forum promotes the spread of best practices for business growth. In its thirtieth year, Tempe Leadership introduces all aspects of our community to a cross section of business and community leaders. Tempe Youth Leadership prepares high school sophomores and juniors for future leadership positions. We work with all levels of government on issues of interest to business, ensuring that regulations and taxes are reasonable and easy to comply with, creating a community where our youths graduate on time and are ready for successful careers, and where infrastructure is sound and transportation options exist. We develop an environment where business can thrive. Yes, we certainly enjoy our “Chamber of Commerce Weather,” but we are most proud of our “Chamber of Commerce Climate.”
