Don’t Mean to Brag, but…

I was fined last week at the Optimists Club meeting by Bob Hughlett for sending out too many emails. Dr. Bob’s not wrong, “I” do send out a great many emails from the Chamber to let you all know about upcoming events (Let’s Do Lunch next week!) and I’m sure they can seem like “Scott-Spam” at some point. But it’s my job – our job as the Chamber – to make sure the business community is engaged. This past Wednesday was Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce Day. For many of us in the chamber of commerce world, we have absolutely no idea what to do with this day. You see, chambers aren’t used to bragging. We are “loud and proud” about our members and the communities we serve but are overly humble when it comes to talking about “us”. So, when it comes to celebrating a day about “us” we’re sort of lost.

For those who don’t know, the Cerritos Regional Chamber is a group of about 320 members governed by a volunteer board of directors and run by a staff of four-ish (our bookkeeper only comes in one day a week). We have several committees, including the Ambassadors, who help us and, thankfully, we have a strong cadre of volunteers as well. From our secret lair in the far reaches of Cerritos…er…sorry, fell into comic book speak…from our office in the Cerritos Plaza, we work hard for each of you – to make sure this area continues to be the best place to live, work, and play. So, if you’d like, send us a message from time to time to let us know how we’re doing, or just give us a pat on the back next time you see us. We’re not a needy bunch, but it’s always nice to hear how we’re doing.

Are you ready for a fun-filled, fast-moving morning? Then join us at Mixin’ in the Mornin’ this Thursday at The Grove Cerritos (formerly Vintage Cerritos). This event is a blast! You are guaranteed to make new contacts while you speed network with other local businesses – don’t miss out!
