Membership is powerful

SEE WHAT MEMBERS ARE SAYING ABOUT IT

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.

The Torrance Chamber has been a great resource for me since I first joined in 2008. I have attended many of the group meetings including PROFS and Human Resources, as well as Networking at Noon and other events. I have built some great relationships with other members and have had the opportunity to give as well as receive referrals for new business. Most recently, by mentioning I was looking to spread the word about a recently released book Business Success With Ease in which I am a co-author, I met the manager of Barnes & Noble and had a book signing in their Torrance location. I feel I have received a great value from my membership!

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.

Torrance has been Sunrider’s home base since the 1980s, and over the years, the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce has proven itself as one of the most effective organizations in the South Bay. At the corporate level, the Chamber provides a platform for our company to collaborate with other like-minded organizations, to address important issues in our community. On a more personal level, I’ve enjoyed and benefited from my interactions with some of the brightest minds in our region. Serving the community via the Chamber of Commerce has been an enriching experience that gives a sense of satisfaction in knowing that we are engaged in a significant work.

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 Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce has proven to be a valuable asset to our business. As our involvement in the Chamber has increased, so too has the visibility of our business grown within the community. Membership with the Torrance Chamber is a great way to meet local area businesses, and is a valuable partner in our continuing success.

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.

I’ve been involved with most of the South Bay chambers throughout my 30 years in community banking. The vast assortment of company types which the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce oversees is impressive. From local neighborhood retail stores to commercial/industrial entities to Fortune 500 corporations, the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce is strongly connected to them all. Their involvement with all levels of local government is equally impressive, and continues to be a great advantage and assistance to its client base. Lastly, the Chamber’s connection and support of local non-profit operations provides the much needed attention and support which in turn benefits all of us.

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!

The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in building my business. I’ve gotten new clients through my involvement, built a huge list of contacts and, more importantly, I’ve developed a lot of lasting friendships. Every business should be a member.

The Volunteer Center, South Bay-Harbor-Long Beach belongs to the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce because the Chamber provides a broad connection to the community that is not available any other place. It also provides a forum to let the community know about our organization, its accomplishments, and its needs. The Volunteer Center benefits greatly from the connections the Chamber provides and has provided for many, many years. Thank you, Torrance Chamber!

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!
