The Arizona Outback (McMullen Valley) encompasses the vast Hwy 60 corridor that lies between the Harcuvar and Harquahala Mountain Ranges, traveling west from Wickenburg through McMullen Valley across to the Kofas, and on to Arizona's original "port of entry", Ehrenberg, AZ on the Colorado River.
The area is rich in history, gold mines, agriculture, cowboys and cattle drives, old miners and new enterprises. Vast open lands, mild winters, and the irresistible desert vistas make the area a favorite spot for winter snowbirds and off-road enthusiasts.
The desert dwellers that make this region their home, enjoy a unique lifestyle. No large shopping malls or busy rush hour traffic. Most make a daily habit of watching the sunset. Of drinking morning coffee while listening to the quail talk to their young. Of taking in a daily breath of the sweet smelling sage. Of saying hello to their neighbors. Most eagerly await the end of snowbird season, and just as eagerly welcome them back the next spring. The summer months are magical, full of secrets and surprises and hidden gems, all for the desert dwellers of the Arizona Outback.

The Chamber is working creatively to find new ways to improve the business climate in our community.

Every business benefits from economic growth and the creation of new jobs. More quality jobs contribute to a larger population with higher wages to spend supporting local businesses. That's why the Chamber is participating with La Paz Economic Development and La Paz County towards economic development within the county.
The Chamber is your voice – advocating for the policies that foster economic growth, jobs, and new opportunities for your organization.
The McMullen Valley Chamber is taking action every day, both as a community partner and as the principal advocate for business at the local, state and federal levels. We advocate for public policy that will encourage economic growth and foster a healthy business climate. We also connect our members with other community leaders, so that together, we can develop innovative ideas to help our region thrive. That's why the Chamber works at the local level to represent business interests with regard to City Council and School Board candidates as well as during local elections
The McMullen Valley Chamber is where people come together to do business, to learn and to make our community a better place. You can devote as much or as little time as you like, but by being engaged or by getting your employees engaged, you enhance the value of your company's membership and support the Chamber's efforts to build a thriving community all at the same time.
Even if you don't have time to be involved, the Chamber is still helping your business grow. In fact, 85 percent of our members are not actively involved. They join and renew each year to ensure that the Chamber can continue strengthening our local economy and advocating for public policy that will support a healthy business climate. In addition, we offer a number of marketing tools that will help you increase visibility of your business without taking time out of your day. Learn More
