The Chamber links members to the community.
Through community events such as the Torrance Police Department Awards & Appreciation Luncheon and the Women in Business Awards & Celebration event, and regional networking events with outside business groups (such as the Japanese Business Association), the Chamber provides opportunities beyond the scope of the Chamber.
The Chamber’s Education Foundation establishes frequent conversations between business owners and the Torrance Unified School District. Over the years, the Chamber has developed several innovative programs to bridge the gap between education and the workplace, and help ensure that Torrance area students are taught valuable skills that modern businesses are looking for.
Leadership Torrance, a six month long class sponsored and facilitated by the TACC, is the premier way for members to improve their leadership skills and become more involved in the Torrance community. More than 750 people have graduated from Leadership Torrance thus far, and have reaped valuable social and economic benefits as a result of their time in the class.
State Senators Ben Allen, 26th District and Steven Bradford, 35th District, along with Assembly Member Al Muratsuchi, 66th District, give an enlightening presentation to Chamber members at the 2022 State of the State address.
The Chamber links members to the government.
The Torrance Chamber’s Governmental Affairs sector has taken business advocacy in the South Bay to new heights in recent years. The Chamber makes it easy for member businesses to voice their concerns for new business legislation. To do so, members may attend Governmental Affairs Policy group meetings (GAP), one of the Chamber’s free member programs, or submit feedback on how legislation is affecting their business. The Chamber writes position letters to Sacramento and works with local business owners to advocate in person on members’ behalf. TACC advocacy takes place on the local, state, and federal levels.
By hosting large regional events such as Lunch with Our Leader, State of the State, State of the Region, and State of the City, the Chamber facilitates a means for members and the community to hear directly from South Bay legislators on important governmental matters affecting the South Bay, Los Angeles County, and California.
The TACC works closely with senators, congressmen, and assemblymen on forthcoming bills the Chamber deems positive for business, and works tirelessly to defeat bills deemed bad for business. The TACC remains committed to advocating for business-friendly legislation that ensures a healthy business climate in the South Bay of Los Angeles County.
