Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce Mixer
The Fountain Valley Chamber of Commerce held an open mixer for the city’s businesses on March 11th. Hosted by Zenia Joyner and her husband Sam, owners of “Fit Body Boot Camp,” these events are an excellent venue to meet the business owners and chamber members who do so much to support the community of Fountain Valley. The Fountain Valley Chamber is becoming more “progressive, professional and relevant,” says Cheryl Westley, Chair of the Chamber Board of Directors. Their efforts have yielded positive results as the city has seen job growth over last year and an unemployment rate under the national average.

Corona State of the City Address and Business Expo
On March 12th the Corona Chamber of Commerce hosted over 140 students from the Corona-Norco Unified School district for their annual career day. Corona knows that the path to success is by developing tomorrow’s future. These were supported by local businesses such as Altura Credit Union, acting as a potential employer for the students to interview with. Also at the event was Arellano Associates, which for over two decades has helped cities by notifying residents of upcoming city infrastructure plans. They highlighted the “91 Project” which will expand the 91 freeway. Both the West and Eastbound freeway will have a total of five regular lanes, two express lanes, and one auxiliary lane. Construction is underway and will be completed by 2017.

Newport Beach 44th Police Appreciation Breakfast
The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce hosted the 44th Annual Police Appreciation Breakfast on March 12th, attended by over 500 officers, their families and guests. This was a wonderful opportunity to honor the men and women who have chosen to protect and serve the businesses and residents of Newport Beach. The sold-out event also honored those fallen men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their community and their country. Among the accommodations, the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce honored the City’s finest and hard working individuals from 2014. It is reassuring to know that a special few men and women around the state and country continue to work so hard, giving all of us the opportunity of vibrant and safe businesses and communities.
