... It's About People Getting Together
Leaders of All Ages and Places
"Bill Gray, President of Uponor (Apple Valley's largest company) said that you, President Ed and the entire Chamber works really hard for the business community and he really appreciates the leadership and we both want the Chamber to know that."
TO US CHAMBER CONFERENCE, LOS ANGELES, JULY 2014 "You should all learn from Apple Valley Chamber… THEY GET IT! Ed in the back of the hall here in LA, has his Apple Slices and Apple Sauce and other kinds of Apple stuff that I love and I've followed for years. He has this innovative "Apple Sauce" section EVERY WEEK about everything opening, closing or any good (or bad) news in town and they have become "The In-The-Know Source." And oh, he has $20 affordable quick ads for members next to it and makes a lot of money. And he has a laminated 1-page Quick Business Guide mailed to every home with every business number at a glance on a page. Brilliant chamber!"
"Apple Valley Chamber is the "$67 million Chamber!" They were the only opposition to road assessments being put on businesses and residents and the City decided to use other funds instead, saving ALL residents $2,500 each & businesses $4,000-146,000 each. A total win for a Chamber others should learn from and part due to their great relations with the City."
Thanks So much for coming to our event and Thank You even more for the picture/publicity. Ed, you truly are a fabulous example of a Leader who cares about his Chamber! Thanks SOOOO much!!!

If the model of Apple Valley is the future, then the future looks bright!
I feel blessed with our Chamber team.
We are very grateful to those who want to keep dollars in Apple Valley.
We feel that being an integral part of the Apple Valley community, is crucial to our long-term success, in addition to being a good corporate citizen.
Having worked in communications and web-design for many Chambers of Commerce, Apple Valley particularly stands out for being an excellent example of how Chambers should follow their lead and really connect, care and communicate with their membership.
