Understand the advantages, disadvantages and ‘unintended consequences’ of purchasing an annuity.

About this Event

As Financial Advisors, we see the aftermath of the ‘unintended consequences’ of those who don’t understand the advantages and disadvantages when it comes to purchasing an annuity.

Answers to commonly asked questions that will be addressed include: What’s the difference between a Living Benefit and Annuitization? Can an annuity protect from market downside? If I pass away, will the annuity company get the balance of my account? What are the real fees I am paying? Is there still a benefit to owning an older annuity contract?

CANCELED: West Valley Biz 2 Biz Expo 2020

Dear Valued Members and Community Partners,

Each year, the West Valley Chamber Alliance works collaboratively to produce the Biz to Biz Expo, a significant networking opportunity to foster business relationships throughout the West Valley.  Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, we’ve collectively made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Biz to Biz Expo.  While this incredibly important annual event has become a favorite for many, the need to prioritize the health and safety of our members, partners, employees and community remains an utmost priority and was top of mind throughout the decision making process.  Although we will not be able to gather as in past years, we encourage you and your business to actively engage with your community Chamber.  Each day we work towards common goals; effectively advocate for business, foster relationship building and ensure communities are well served by their leaders and system of governance.  We look forward to Biz 2 Biz Expo 2021 and remain optimistic as the West Valley forges ahead.

Now more than ever, continued support and investment in your local Chamber of Commerce is vital and ensures continued momentum as we recover from this pandemic.  Chambers will continue to focus on steady, reasonable sources of insight and information while serving as a resource hub throughout recovery efforts. 

The West Valley Chamber Alliance is a partnership of the Buckeye Valley Chamber, Glendale Chamber, Peoria Chamber, Southwest Valley Chamber, Surprise Regional Chamber and the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce.

Sincerely,
West Valley Chamber CEO’s
Deanna, Robert, Scot, John, Raoul and Julie
