About our Chamber
Unlike the other Chambers in the County the American Canyon Chamber is only 18 years old. The Chamber was run in its early years by a dedicated group of volunteers. The first Executive Director came on board in 1998 with a total of 60 members. The Chamber grew larger and stronger. The chamber changed leadership in April of 2007 and again in 2010. Today we boast a solid membership of 170.
The mission of the American Canyon Chamber of Commerce is to promote, preserve and strengthen the prosperity of our membership and the community. The American Canyon Chamber of Commerce subscribes to the following core competencies as defined by the Western States Professional Association:
Our membership makes the most of networking opportunities! Member businesses volunteer their office space and, with the help of a strong Ambassador Program, the Chamber provides 12 monthly networking mixers a year. These mixers continue to attract more attendees each month; just when you think the last one was a show-stopper, the next month rolls around and everyone is amazed once again!
In November of 2007, our Chamber started a Governmental Affairs Committee (GAC). The ultimate focus of our GAC is to influence governmental policies, programs and regulations to enhance the business climate in our community. Our strategy is to analyze proposed local, state and federal legislation, regulations and ordinances. The Committee will research and advocate for new or revised programs for legislation to improve, not burden, local business.
Although new, we have analyzed, studied and taken positions on ballot propositions and measures, sent questionnaires to candidates and posted the results, hosted forums and interviews and through various mediums advised the public of the outcome. It is a GAC goal to become more vocal regarding legislation that adversely affects our business community.
With the help and support of the business community and our community at large, the American Canyon Chamber of Commerce is becoming a quality resource that can be counted on. We measure our success by our growing membership and community support.
