Join the chamber on Thursday, June 7 to discover how we can help boost your business. The event will give local businesses the opportunity to learn first-hand how the chamber provides networking opportunities, publicity and exposure, business referral services, educational resources, and proactive public affairs.

Kendra Fleetwood, owner of CK’s Tavern and Grill explained, “As a small business owner and full-time mom, my time is perhaps my most valuable asset. Learning to prioritize my time, while trying to continue to grow my business is my greatest challenge. The last three years have presented extremely challenging economic business conditions, and like many fellow small business owners, I have looked hard at reducing operational expenses. Nonetheless, I have made it a priority to continue to be a contributing member of the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce. The networking opportunities afforded me over the past eight years with fellow community leaders is invaluable to the success of a family-owned small business like mine. The chamber allows me to invest my time in a streamlined, visible, and high impact manner with my fellow peers and within our community.”

The event takes place at Tukee’s Sports Grille, 4804 E. Chandler Blvd., from 5 to 7 p.m. and will feature a drawing for an iPad and a complimentary annual chamber membership. Join that night and save 20 percent. Current members who refer a new member receive a free month added on to their membership. Come network, enjoy delicious appetizers and a cash bar while experiencing the services the chamber can provide.
