Arizona Chamber Executives provides an avenue for chambers across the state to work together on issues at local, state and federal levels.
The annual legislative agenda is one way Arizona chambers show legislators and other elected officials how we stand together and advocate for Arizona businesses on issues affecting the business community and Arizona as a whole. This document also provides chamber executives the power to officially sign in for or against bills during the legislative session.

ACE's Economic Leadership Forum offers chamber executives the opportunity to meet on a regular basis for valuable professional development and to share experiences and management tools. Chamber executives acquire new strategies for success to strengthen the industry in an open dialogue, peer-to-peer setting. This confidential, non-competitive forum assists chamber executives in building long-term relationships based on support and trust. These relationships are invaluable resources to everyone’s success. Meetings occur quarterly at chambers throughout the state.
Why is a mentoring program important? Both the mentor and mentee benefit from the experience. Being at the top can be lonely when it comes to having someone to talk to in the chamber profession, so the mentoring program provides professional peers to discuss chamber-related challenges and successes.
Although each mentor/mentee relationship is unique, here are basic guidelines for the ACE mentoring program.
