Presented in partnership with the Chandler, Gilbert, and Queen Creek Chambers of Commerce, this event features a regional and local update focused on major projects and key areas of focus.
Guiding Growth Podcast Series
So often, we define ourselves and others by a title or label. But, who is the person behind the success? Leaders are inspiring, memorable, and often a mystery to those whom they inspire.
Join our hosts, Sarah Watts and Ben Kalkman, as we explore the human journey of leaders - their stories of humility, triumph, roadblocks, and lessons learned - as they reflect on how they became who they are today and share stories of inspiration and hope with listeners.
We'll take away the title, just for a moment, and enjoy a connection with the soul.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies
It's an honor to celebrate the grand opening of a new business or the reopening or milestone anniversary of an existing business. We encourage our members and the community to attend these events to learn more about the products and services offered and to show a warm welcome to the business owners and their teams. These ceremonies are often attended by the mayor and members of the Gilbert Town Council, Gilbert Fire & Rescue, and Gilbert Chamber Board members and ambassadors. Ribbon cuttings are available in-person and VIRTUALLY viaFACEBOOK LIVE.
