The Greater Phoenix Chamber announced its participation in the statewide #BacktoBusinessAZ campaign.

The #BacktoBusinessAZ is a digital marketing campaign launched by the Arizona Chamber Executives (ACE) to promote businesses across the state of Arizona. The digital campaign includes a multi-pronged approach aimed at highlighting local, Arizona businesses and fostering economic prosperity through a grassroots email and social media campaign that is being executed by local chambers of commerce. The #BacktoBusinessAZ campaign will educate the public on how they can safely support local businesses as they reopen after the pandemic.

“Getting Arizona back to business is the most significant priority for the Greater Phoenix Chamber. As we all come together to navigate this challenging time, it’s vital that we work together to reopen our state’s economy and support businesses with our dollars” said Todd Sanders, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber. “By working with our local chamber partners, the #BacktoBusinessAZ campaign will showcase local companies and how people can support their work every day.”

ACE, a nonprofit organization that assists chamber executives throughout Arizona to become informed, effective leaders in their communities, is launching #BacktoBusinessAZ.

“ACE is proud to provide local chambers of commerce with an additional resource to support local businesses,” said ACE Board Chair, Patty Villeneuve. Villenueve serves as the President and CEO of the Carefree-Cave Creek Chamber of Commerce, a role she has held for approximately ten years.

The Greater Phoenix Chamber will be supporting members by promoting member businesses and resources to the public using the #BacktoBusinessAZ hashtag.

“The #BacktoBusinessAZ campaign will support the Greater Phoenix Chamber’s efforts to showcase our members in every industry as Arizona moves toward a strategic, phased-in reopening plan,” said Sanders.

About #BacktoBusinessAZ

The #BacktoBusinessAZ is a digital marketing campaign, launched by ACE, to promote businesses across the state of Arizona.  Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic slowdown, businesses have been forced to shut down or seen a drastic reduction in their operations.

The #BacktoBusinessAZ campaign will support Arizona businesses as the state reopens the economy in a phased-in approach that encompasses public safety guidelines. The campaign will garner organic support for businesses as they work to get back to pre-COVID-19 operations.
