A Community Service Program of the Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce

In cooperation with the US Chamber of Commerce. The mission of the Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce is to champion economic prosperity, foster a pro-business climate, and to improve the quality of life in our region. The Chamber is not a political action committee and does not endorse candidates.  We sponsor candidate forums because we believe people have a right to know what their candidates for public office say about issues that affect our communities. We provide forums as a public service, and we are privileged and proud to play a role in the democratic process.
