Featured Member Testimonial
Get a Gift Card When You Refer a Member!
" One AZ Credit Union has been a member since 2000. As a new participant of the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, I’ve been blown away by the sense of community that the Chamber has. Everyone knows everyone and you feel welcomed immediately by the members and the Chamber team. It is much more than business, I’ve learned not only about everyone’s business but the people behind the scenes. I’ve attended Business Over Breakfast on Wednesday mornings, and have come to know many of the members as friends. I have gained connections not only for business, but for personal needs as well. I am looking forward to attend other events that the Chamber hosts throughout the month, I know they will be fun and very rewarding."
