The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce is one of thirteen local chambers of commerce to receive the 2024 Advocacy Champion Award from the California Chamber of Commerce.

This is the second year the award has been given to recognize chambers for excellence in business advocacy. Representatives of the Advocacy Champion chambers were honored on May 8 during the CalChamber Capitol Summit in Sacramento.

“Communities look to their local chambers to be problem solvers for the community,” said Nick Ortiz, CalChamber vice president of local chamber relations. “The Advocacy Champion chambers stepped up to the plate in a big way.”

Advocacy Champions published vote records of their state legislators on key business issues, joined coalition efforts to let state elected officials know about community sentiment on issues of interest to members, voiced the local chamber’s position at legislative policy committee hearings and met with state elected officials on important policy issues.

The 2024 recipients of the Advocacy Champion Award are as follows:
• Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce
• Fremont Chamber of Commerce
• Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce
• Lodi District Chamber of Commerce
• Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce
• Orange County Business Council
• Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce

• San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce
• Stockton Chamber of Commerce
• Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce
