Thee Imperial Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce (IVRCC) is one of 16 state-wide chambers to be named an HR Champion by the California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber).

“We are grateful for receiving the CalChamber 2023 HR Champion Award. This award recognizes the hard work and dedication of our IVRCC staff, the IVRCC Board and our commitment to our members. We’re looking forward to an amazing year of growth and member service,” said IVRCC President, Anne Irigoyen.
IVRCC’s Government Affairs Chairperson, Sherry Cowie and Director of Operations, Kayla Kirby attended the Capitol Summit to receive the award and to meet with the California Chamber of Commerce and State Legislators to discuss several state-wide issues affecting businesses and the community.
“The success of our business members is important to the Imperial Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce. This is why we work hard to help them maintain HR compliance by updating them with the newest laws and employer/employee requirements as they relate to their individual businesses,” said Cowie.
“California labor law requirements can be a puzzle for businesses of all sizes, especially smaller operations,” said Nick Ortiz, CalChamber vice president of local chamber relations. “We are pleased to recognize these HR Champion chambers for keeping their members updated on state labor law by participating at a high level in our compliance product resale program.”
