Membership is powerful

SEE WHAT MEMBERS ARE SAYING ABOUT IT

My favorite [Torrance Chamber] committee is all of them and I’ve served on almost each one or helped out and attended meetings many times. My belief is that you make your own luck and I’ve been extremely lucky. Being involved has enhanced and allowed relationships to build with so many Chamber members over the years.
Staying in touch and taking time to embrace the many opportunities that TACC gives is an unbelievable benefit. I’ve learned new things and honed skills that are invaluable to me and my clients. I will continue to grow as a person & business in many ways thanks to TACC programs. I’m happy to be an active committee member as it pays huge dividends.
Beyond my goal of helping others and myself in 2021, I look forward to seeing everyone at meetings and helping TACC businesses grow more!

Continental Development Corporation has benefited greatly from our membership with the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, we have received numerous referrals specifically for tenants at our Skypark Office/Medical complex located off Lomita and Hawthorne Boulevards. In addition, businesses looking to expand to other South Bay cities have also contacted us through the many Chamber communication channels.

I have been an active member of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce for 20 years now and I have loved every minute! As a past chairman of the board, I have developed life-long relationships and freindships with the chamber and the City. I always say, ‘you get out of the chamber of what you put into it’ – being a part of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce has been the best investment I have made in business…

Being a part of the TACC has been great for me and my business. Being a military family, I’m always looking for a way to connect with our new community and the Torrance Chamber is a great way to get plugged in and become a true citizen of the community. I’m able to learn about and patronize businesses I probably wouldn’t be familiar with. In addition, to that getting to meet some amazing people and build true relationships.
“The TACC is the place to be! You’ll truly feel like a member of the family.

Taking advantage of the many free programs offered by the TACC, I’ve gained knowledge in technology, HR, finance, and acquired the tools I needed to improve and grow my business. I’ve had the opportunity to create partnerships which leveraged leads and increased sales, received referrals and business from other Chamber members, and been given the opportunity to become part of and give back to the Torrance community.

Dear Donna,

I contacted you when I was at a loss for communication with one of our vendors that was located within your city. You were kind enough to help me with my situation. It is my opinion you went above and beyond the call of duty to assist us with this matter. I want to personally thank you for everything you performed to help us. I would recommend the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce as the most professional and helpful Chamber I have ever dealt with.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Torrance — South Bay has benefitted greatly not only from the many events we have the pleasure of hosting, but also with the relationships we have built over the years with Torrance Chamber members. I personally have served on the Executive Board and Full Board and have found the experience to be an asset to our organization’s growth through the years. Leadership Torrance, a program of the Torrance Chamber, is a great introduction for new members to become fully acquainted with the community and all that Torrance has to offer.

Thanks so much for coming out yesterday for our grand opening, despite the rain. I really do appreciate it. That meant a lot to me.  My wife and her family were definitely impressed by the show of support from the city and the Chamber of Commerce.  We’ll never forget it. Thanks again!

Thank you for your referral of Steven Griswold Insurance.  Steven is wonderful and was able to procure me the insurance I needed for the Faire. It feels great to have my insurance broker be someone who has actually attended the Street Faire instead of a broker in Tucson, AZ. Chamber networking works!
