James J. McDonald, Jr. - Fisher & Phillips LLP
"Congrats on your re-branding. I like the new logo, and the concept of "area." Your chamber is the most substantial and business oriented chamber in the Valley, which is why it draws members from as far away as, well, Irvine."
Anne G. Evans, MBA - Audio Video Simplified
the PDCofC has enabled the profitable growth of our business. Honestly, part of the reason that you have seen less of me and also of Rick at the PDCofC member events is because the PCCofC has enabled the growth of our business such that even in the off season we are so busy with answering to existing/potential clients that it is now challenging to find the time and energy to attend the networking events!
Forever committed members with gratitude
Heddy Schulkind Salerno - Director - Creative Possibilities
As you know, I've been a member of the Palm Desert Chamber for a little over a year. I just wanted to share with you and other members of the Chamber the REAL reason that we have all joined a chamber or two. It's to get business. It's to meet people that can use your services or products or know someone that can do the same.
Well, I want to share my story with you. I attended the Business Expo last year and met Jason and Burt from Desert Business Interiors. Being in the plant business, it was a perfect compliment to the great interiors that these guys could provide. We met again at a chamber mixer (yes, you do have to go to those things) and was given a referral to a job they had just finished, VIP Urgent Care. After several months of negotiations, VIP Urgent Care now has beautiful plants, great containers and a fabulous guaranteed plant service! Similar to the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce, who, by the way, was also referred by DBI.
My thanks to Jason and Burt from Desert Business Interiors, for trusting me with their clients, to Barbara from the Chamber, for working with me, and to Blake from VIP Urgent Care, who knows what he wants. And of course, to the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce for giving me a vehicle to meet people and grow my business.
Looking forward to another great year and more referrals!
Stephanie Greene - Principal - Furino-Greene Creative
The team here at Furino-Greene Creative has always valued our ongoing relationship with the Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce. They are fantastic partners in a variety of cross-promotional events that we are involved with through our clients, and we have certainly benefitted from all of the networking and educational opportunities that they provide. We recommend to all of our clients to become active members, and we look forward to all of the great events to come!
Stacy Thetford - President - Thetford Web Development
The Palm Desert Chamber of Commerce has been such a great resource for me and my business. Thetford Web Development has grown due to the contacts and friends that I have made through the chamber. Referrals are always the best customers and by getting involved with the chamber and staying involved, many chamber members are my clients and have referred other clients to TWD. It is true; your membership definitely works for you if you get involved!
Leslie Spoor - Owner, Executive Errands
The Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce is the best local resource for networking with other area companies and allows us, as members, to have a voice for potential legislation issues affecting our businesses. The key to maximizing the benefits of membership is to participate.
Keith Goff - President, Rabobank NA
Being involved in chamber functions throughout the year has allowed the bank numerous opportunities to host events and network with the community. Being a part of the Chairman's Council has provided the bank with additional exposure opportunities to one of our major targets; small business owners.
Ray Rodriguez - Owner, Casuelas Cafe & Cork Tree California Cuisine
The PD Chamber and its Associates have provided me with a real life MBA in business. From finance to sales to HR and every business need in between. The Chamber has been my primary "go to" resource.
Lew Miller, Owner - Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning
The Palm Desert AREA Chamber has allowed Heaven's Best numerous networking opportunities whether it be the Monthly Mixers, Profit Connection, the Breakfast Meetings or the many other networking opportunities. Be involved!
David Herrlinger, Vice President - Hot Purple Energy
We hope it's becoming clear that Hot Purple Energy is more than just a solar company. We care about the health of the valley and its economy across the board, and are fully engaged to this sustainable cause. There are few desert organizations that take this engagement to heart as earnestly as the Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce. As the tide rises, so do all boats.
George Argyros, Owner- John's Restaraunt & Towne Center Cafe
Being a member of the Chamber and the Palm Desert Community for many years has helped me not only professionally but personally. I have grown my two businesses, met many great people, and look forward to more great things and growth in the future - come check out my remodel soon.
Connie Golds, Owner - Desert Best Friend's Closet
Joining the Palm Desert Area Chamber increased our visibility in the Coachella Valley. I love attending the Chamber breakfasts-they are a perfect venue to network, promote our nonprofit and meet other business owners.
Chuck Weisbart, Owner - It's in the Bag Travel Store
Nothing in the business to business environment here in the Coachella Valley comes close to the experience and playback we get from all of the benefits we see via the PDACC. After 23 years in business we are amazed at all the new tricks that this chamber comes up with that are fresh, energizing and totally original.
G. Aubrey Serfling, President and Chief Executive Officer - Eisenhower Medical Center
The Palm Desert Area Chamber helps Eisenhower Medical Center reach community members who might not be aware of the health care support we can offer businesses as well as the entire community. The leads we receive via the Chamber help us track our outreach & communication efforts.
