Scott Radcliffe's Thoughts
Exciting Times at the Chamber
There is a renewed energy at the Cerritos Regional Chamber of Commerce. Yes, a lot of it has to do with the Holiday season that is upon us, but not all of it. Last week’s Annual Holiday Mixer was a rousing success, thanks in large part to the excellent attendance. It also may have been the fantastic food and beautiful setting of the Sheraton Cerritos, but I think people are genuinely excited about the Chamber.
We’ve renewed our focus on Member Benefits and stressing the importance of making sure that we are providing value for your membership investment. For instance, in January we will be launching a new weekly referral oriented networking Leads Group. Aptly named “Cerritos Connected” the group will meet right here in the Chamber conference room. The group will work to drive more member to member business and develop lasting relationships.
In February, we’ll be launching a Business Educational Series whereby each month one of our business members will present on a topic of interest to other members and businesses. Our preliminary list of topics to cover includes Computers, Taxes, Internships, Financial Planning, City Power Source, Cyber Security, Business Consulting and the list continues to grow. One member will present on the area of expertise in a non-sales oriented, informational format, designed to assist our member’s by providing important information that will benefit their business.
Speaking of excitement, I ALWAYS get excited about our new members. New members can also be of benefit to the entire membership as they bring new opportunities. Here are this week’s new members.
Allstate Insurance – Sandra Molina. As a resident and fellow worker in Cerritos, Sandra understands our community. She’s here to help you choose the insurance coverage that fits your needs. Sandra stated, “You can count on me and my agency to help you get the protection you need wherever you’re headed!”
The Dental Office of Long Beach joined to promote their business to the community of Cerritos. They boast, “Your smile says it all; we are committed to helping you look, feel and smile your best”. They are a dedicated team dedicated to your comprehensive care with advanced, proven technology.
CQ Infotech is a professional IT solution company that specializes in managed IT, infrastructure and global delivery services to our clients, ranging from small regional companies to Fortune 500 multi-national corporations. CEO Anil Ramineni’s real passion is working with our local youth and speaking on Entrepreneurial programs. He is looking forward to connecting with ABC Unified and Cerritos College. That’s exciting.
Long Beach Kids Dentistry also joined this week. They boast, “from baby teeth to braces, we provide dental care that grows along with your child”. Located in the Long Beach Town Center, they are conveniently close to support the Cerritos community.
Well, there you have it: exciting stuff!
