Kaiser Permanente Chair of the Board
2021-2022 Chair of the Board
Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce
Dear Chamber Members,
Many of you will read this message as you prepare to take time away to celebrate the holidays. My husband, daughter and I are heading back east to spend time with family for Christmas – catching up with aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents who we have not seen nearly enough during this pandemic. Like many of you, we’re trying to piece together some sense of normalcy as we close out another abnormal year.
Amid so much uncertainty, the Torrance Chamber and our local business community have been buoys of optimism and connection for me. Despite the challenges of COVID, our members have been nimble, innovative, and resilient. They have demonstrated an incredible commitment to protecting public health and safety, while also working to rebuild our local economy.
These past two years have not been easy, and we know that many are still struggling – both personally and professionally. Please know that we see you and walk alongside you. Our business community is strong because it is truly a community, made up of people who want to see each other succeed.
My holiday wish is that each of you can savor time with family and friends, reconnect with the purpose that drives you each day, and honor the hard work you have put into surviving this past year.
Looking forward to a brighter 2022,
PS: If you’ve not yet finished holiday shopping, remember to invest in your community by spending those dollars locally.
