The Philippine American Chamber of Commerce of Arizona (PACCA) was established in 1994 by a group of Filipino small business owners. Elected Officers and Board Members serve voluntarily and hold term of offices for one year. The main objective of the Chamber is to promote, foster and enhance the business relationships between the members of the Chamber and the general business community locally and globally.

PACCA strives to assist Filipino-American entrepreneurs by conducting business and management seminars and workshops. It assists in the professional growth of its members with timely and informative speakers. Speakers include government and state officials, business consultants, economists, health experts and motivational speakers. Representatives from the Philippines Department of Trade and Industry, Internal Revenue Service, City of Phoenix, the Small Business Administration as well as speakers in insurance, labor, Census and immigration issues, to name a few, have also addressed the Chamber.
