President's Welcome

Dear Business Community Member:

The Calexico Chamber of Commerce is a leading force advancing the growth of business, education and encouraging community and bi-national partnerships to strengthen the economy and enhance Calexico’s quality of life. The Calexico Chamber of Commerce is an excellent resource for business members, local residents and visitors. We field hundreds of phone calls, e-mails and requests for information about area businesses, festivals and events each year – connecting your business with potential new customers. Chamber Membership puts your business on our team!

The Chamber assists and supports over 300 small and mid-sized business owners by facilitating a multitude of networking opportunities and educational workshops that encourage relationship marketing with fellow Chamber and community members. We provide free resources such as ribbon cuttings, community profiles, mentoring services, business & residential relocation packets and demographic information tracking the trends in the Imperial Valley. We utilize our unique market position as a Southwest International Gateway to promote our Chamber members to prospective consumers, tourists and international neighbors.

As we prepare for future growth and prosperity, the overall needs of the business community are dramatically changing. Chamber membership is a cost-effective marketing and communications device for your business. As a Chamber Member, your business has free website presence on our highly utilized website with an individual ink to your website. Your business is also included on our Facebook Calexico Chamber of Commerce page which daily updates and promotes our members. Your business will be listed in our Annual Chamber Directory & Business Guide that is given out with every business referral request the Chamber receives and is included in each relocation and visitor packet sent out.

We encourage you to join the Chamber and become part of our Team! Begin to take advantage of our programs, activities and meetings. We welcome you to participate in any way your schedule allows.

Enclosed is our application form along with a “working” calendar of events and meetings. We look forward to answering any questions you may have and for the opportunity to assist you in becoming a member of the Calexico Chamber of Commerce. Please contact our executive director Hildy Carrillo at 760-357-1166 or 760-562-4435 for assistance.
