This week let’s take a look at the Why.  Specifically, why you should be a member of the Cerritos Chamber of Commerce.  It is a matter of my strong opinion that the Chamber must be able to answer the question regardless of the size of the company or the industry of the business.

First and foremost in my mind is the social obligation of all of us to actively participate in every aspect of the things that are going on in our local community.  This may seem extremely broad, but the chamber covers a very broad range of engagement.  Everything from the activities of the city to those of the local school districts, to the concerns of the community, to the impacts and effects of the businesses within said community.  We truly are “all in this together”.  The Chamber of Commerce is your connector of City, Community and Business.

Another very high priority of the Chamber is to provide meaningful and beneficial opportunities for the businesses.  Business success is a win for the city and the community.  The Chamber focuses a lot of attention on providing businesses with opportunities.  From networking meetings to direct referrals.  From educational information to very specific targeted business consultation on almost any subject.  From branding, marketing and advertising to event sponsorship opportunities.  The Chamber is literally a library of information and contact points.

If your business is already a member of the Chamber, congratulations, you are part of the solution.  If you know of a business that is not a member, I challenge you to encourage them to get on board or give me a call.  If you yourself or your business are not a member, give me a call and let’s get you on the team.  After all, we’re stronger together.

For a more detailed list of specific benefits, email me and I will send you the Member Benefits document.  It is two and one half pages.  Consider it a menu to select the tools and resources that align with your business strategy.

Remember to vote during the upcoming March 3rd election.  The Cerritos Chamber cannot provide an endorsement in favor or against Measure C, but we can provide information and assistance in the decision making process.  The City of Cerritos also cannot specify an endorsement in favor or against, but they have put together an information sheet to assist in the edification process.  The City has produced a flyer with detailed information about Measure C.  You can read this by clicking on this link http://www.cerritos.us/main/election/2020/_pdfs/measure_c_flyer.pdf or you can go directly to the City of Cerritos website at www.cerritos.us and click on the link to Measure C Information.

Finally, if you still do not have an answer to the question why should I join the chamber of commerce, please give me a call.
