A Word from our Board Chair

A J Hampton

     First, I want to thank everyone for your support and prayers that have kept us going. 
Thankfully businesses and events are opening again, allowing us to finally be able to host in-person meetings and events. We enjoyed our first in-person Business 4 Breakfast with an awesome turnout and great reviews!  Our new member orientation was recently held for the first time in over a year, with forty-five businesses learning how the Chamber can help them succeed.  We have also held a few Grand Openings for new members and a recent Mixer at AR Workshops.  Chamber events gather loads of enthusiasm, so please make some time to join us.  Everyone is invited and it’s an excellent way to welcome new businesses to town and make some new connections. 
     Our new Events Coordinator- Jennifer is a wonderful addition at the Chamber office bringing a wealth of knowledge and new ideas. You should be seeing her emails about all our great upcoming events.
     It makes me proud that the Antelope Valley Chambers of Commerce can bring together our community, our businesses, our non-profits and both Cities - Palmdale, and Lancaster to collaborate together for the good of our entire community; making us a better place to live, work and play. 
Thank you
A J Hampton

Meet our staff  -  Jennifer Delgado, Events Coordinator   

Jennifer was born of Cuban and Puerto Rican decent in Los Angeles, but grew up in the AV so this has always been home to her. Extremely passionate about her work, she prides herself in always putting her best foot forward. She has been working in event planning for years and is thrilled to be part of the Chamber. She’s looking forward to meeting all the members and helping grow the Chamber and it's influence in our community. Simply put “I'm excited for what's to come and playing a part in the evolution of the Chamber as it continues to expand its reach and impact”.
She enjoys good food and surrounds herself with amazing people. Married for 13 years, her husband is an amazing RN here in the AV. They have a brilliant little girl who is 10 (going on 20 some days), and a Giant 120 lbs Schnauzer that is just a big sweetheart. “I never say no to dancing, a good drink or a fun day with family and friends.”
