THE CHAMBER’S TOOLS HELP MEMBERS ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN BUSINESS

Visibility

The Chamber coordinates over 130 events and programs every year—each an opportunity for members to expand their visibility. Advertising is also available.

Credibility

Positive brand perception is essential, and the Chamber helps members set the stage. Members can volunteer for speaking engagements to share their expertise and elevate their credibility.

Profitability

When a business’s visibility and credibility rise, so does its profitability. Consumers trust businesses that are involved in—and care about—the community.

The Torrance Chamber’s Governmental Affairs Policy (GAP) group meets to determine Chamber positions towards legislative issues affecting the Torrance Business Community.

Business Learning & Development

Exclusive training opportunities on a variety of hot topics give members a competitive edge over non-members. It’s like a set of continuing education courses — at no extra cost.

Members unlock free unlimited access to these six monthly programs for learning, collaboration, and relationship building: Governmental Affairs Policy, Health & Wellness, Ignite Torrance, Professional Roundtable of Financial Services, and Tech Talks.

Plus, these incredible programs give non-members a chance to get a feel for membership for free.

Cost Saving Programs

The Chamber develops partnerships and initiatives to provide members with exclusive savings that go beyond the office.

Gain a Voice

The Chamber gives member businesses a voice they wouldn’t have otherwise. Members gain a say in what happens in government through the Torrance Area Chamber’s effective advocacy efforts.

The Chamber’s full-time Government Affairs staff advocates tirelessly on behalf of member businesses every day. Weekly staff reports, a monthly advocacy newsletter, and the Chamber’s Grassroots Advocacy Center keep members engaged with how the Chamber is helping protect the interests of South Bay business.

Brandon Matson (TACC), Bob Brandt (Red Car Brewery & Restaurant), Chef Shafer (The Depot & Buffalo Fire Department restaurants), Kirk Rossberg (Torrance Bakery & Sandwich Shop), and Donna Duperron (TACC) testified in Los Angeles in opposition of the minimum wage hike, 2015.

Access to 130+ events and meetings per year

Chamber members enjoy discounted pricing at events. Members may also participate in event committees with other area business professionals to help make Chamber events the special experiences that they are. Committee participation is a great opportunity for members to grow their visibility and credibility.
