The Sierra Vista Area Chamber is proud to represent the business community. Our goal is to provide programs and events that benefit our members. We could not do this without the support of the membership beyond their annual dues investment.
We hope many of our more than 500 members will take advantage of the events, sponsorship and other marketing opportunities provided throughout the year. We know that budgets are tight and that every marketing dollar must count, which is why we offer opportunities to suit every pocket – from just $100.

How do Chamber Events & Programs benefit you, the Chamber Member?
Chamber events are a way for you to showcase your business and build relationships through networking opportunities.
Business at Twilight
Our monthly, and most popular, networking event gives our members the chance to shine when they host a Business at Twilight. Showcase your place of business, products or services to an average of 50 to 80 people in just 90 minutes.
To cover the costs the Chamber requires $100 hosting fee to be paid by the business.
Good Morning Sierra Vista
Good Morning Sierra Vista is a networking event that happens on the second Tuesday of month designed to bring together the entire Sierra Vista Community. Business owners, community leaders, non-profits, and their staff members can benefit from attending. This program provides City, Fort, Community, and Chamber updates as well as a great networking opportunity while enjoying breakfast.
Be sure to bring your business cards for networking and the door prize drawing.
