The chamber of commerce roots are traceable to 1599 in Marseille, France.  The chamber has a long and storied history of successfully assisting in the growth of industry and with business progress.  Despite these successes, many people speculate that the chamber has become outdated in our current hypersonic age of information.  Well, I for one am not buying it.

I see the chamber as an opportunity for unity, learning and strengthening.  The chamber is here to assist.  It is our business to assist your business.  We are going to continue to support business no matter the industry.  We are going to continue giving back to the local community as part of our pursuit to improve and we are going to promote unity.

In a time of increasing division in our great nation, the chamber remains strong in our drive to unite people and businesses.  We are going to promote unity at every opportunity; and why not?  There is plenty of opportunity for everyone.  We will specifically focus on uniting businesses with other businesses, but we will also be looking to connect suppliers to consumers.  Who knows; we may even unite some power partners.

Speaking of power partners, ours is this great city.  The City has approved the Chamber to host the 2020 City Council Candidate Forum.  Last week the date I listed for the event was incorrect.  The correct date is Wednesday, February 12th, 2020.  My apologies for any confusion that may have caused.

The Chamber united this past week with several new members.  Please join me in welcoming them.

Tax & Financial Group is a comprehensive financial services firm committed to helping their clients improve and achieve long-term financial success.  Karen Lomas, Financial Advisor will be getting actively involved in the chamber.  She is very passionate about providing educational learning opportunities.

Senior Helpers of Cerritos provides the perfect services for any of your loved ones needs, all done from home.  By providing non-medical home care, you’re gaining a genuine, in-home connection designed to give your loved ones the absolute best quality of life.  Owner Darshana Bhakta is looking to get engaged in several of the chamber’s opportunities.

Dip the Art of Shabu is a new restaurant located in Artesia.  As the name implies, owner Rishi Patel is looking to spread the word on his special recipe for Shabu.

And so it is, another week at the Chamber.  We’re here for you. Stop in and say hi.
