Welcome to Indus Chamber
The Indus Valley American Chamber of Commerce
The Indus Valley American Chamber of Commerce was founded in 2001 by a group of philanthropistic and ambitious individuals who saw a gap in a business-oriented community that needed to be filled. They have undertaken this mountainous task and have exceeded not only the expectations of the founders but those of their well-wishers as well. Since the IVACC's inception, it's members have had the honor to directly participate in California's legislative process. They did this by entertaining and being entertained by California's most well-respected dignitaries in the political realm as well as in the social realm. IVACC has strategic alliances with the prominent South Asian community members at large as well as with prominent community members all across California. Above is a picture of some of the 2005-2007 IVACC board members with Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi, shortly before his recent legislative victory.
