Business Connections

It's the best networking in the L.A. region.  From referrals, to networking functions, to business matchmaking, the Chamber's many business development programs provide opportunities to connect with potential purchasers and build business relationships throughout the year.

Ambassadors Club

The Chamber's Ambassadors are member volunteers who educate and involve other members in Chamber programs and services to maximize their membership investments. Chamber Ambassadors call on all new members and encourage them to take advantage of the business development opportunities offered through the Chamber; represent the Chamber at ribbon cuttings and special events; greet attendees at Chamber signature events; and meet monthly to plan for upcoming activities and training. The club allows Ambassador to extend their business contacts; achieve professional and community recognition for individuals and their companies; and expand communication and marketing skills. For more information, contact Pat Clark.
