[Castaic, July 9] – The Castaic Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors today announced it has voted unanimously to unite with the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, creating one chamber to represent every community within the Santa Clarita Valley.
“This was an important step for the greater Castaic community and for our business leaders to acknowledge it was the right time to start working in greater cooperation with the Santa Clarita Valley business community,” said Brian Higgins, president of the Castaic Chamber of Commerce. “Our unincorporated community has grown and we’ve found great value in working with the SCV Chamber. We’re both strong, active chambers, but it just makes good business sense to have one chamber.”
Sue Nevius, chair of the SCV Chamber of Commerce said, “I see Castaic as a vital part of the Santa Clarita Valley and we’re proud to have them and their members join us. It’s important that all local businesses are represented and working together on local and regional issues. This will allow us to have an even stronger voice on issues facing the SCV and our business community.”
Members of the Castaic Chamber will automatically become members of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber effective August 1, 2015, with full access to all member benefits. Castaic Chamber president, Brian Higgins, will join the SCV Chamber Board of Directors.
