As the New Year begins at the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce, our thoughts have turned to all that is new.

We are eagerly starting the year with a lot that is new, including a group of new members and potential members who are poised to be part of the Chamber and challenge their businesses to do something new in 2017.  

We are kicking off our 2017 committees, with new ideas for our programming and events that will bring even more to our members and to the community.

On the technology side, the Chamber has launched a new website with many tools to help businesses create an online presence (ahwatukeechamber.com). Businesses can access analytics to review information about visits to their landing page on the website and can also showcase key offerings of the business, including special offers to customers and clients.

Our website will continue to evolve with new information and always has a calendar of current Chamber events available for anyone to view.

Our Save Local Now application is getting a facelift for 2017 start.savelocalnow.com. This is a digital marketing app designed to help local residents, as well as visitors to the area, find local businesses as resources for whatever they need.

On the app, businesses have a profile and can create information and offers to share with the community.  Look for the new, updated app to be available by the end of January.

Our Ahwatukee Chamber Community Foundation also begins a new phase this month within our Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!).  Beginning in mid-January, our middle and high school students will be paired with a mentor to coach them as they develop their new business plan for the actual business they will launch during the program.

 These mentors are part of the Ahwatukee and East Valley business community who will volunteer their expertise to support the students. Visit our Facebook page at facebook.com/YEAAhwatukee. There are many ways to volunteer in the YEA! program and we welcome community members to participate.

Looking for a way to get more involved in our community as a business  or as an individual?

We can help connect you to new resources to support new year goals. Our members represent all types of business and services, from business and life coaches, to local charities, to home remodeling companies and more.

 Let us help you start your “new”—you may just find that membership in the Ahwatukee Chamber of Commerce is a great new place to be!

-Lindy Lutz Cash is president and CEO of the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce.
