The Business Federation of Los Angles County (BizFed) launched its inaugural Business Makes LA County Work Awards last Friday. An award was presented to one business or business organization, plus one elected or appointed official, in each of the county’s five supervisorial districts. The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce received the Bizzi Award for the 4th Supervisorial District. BizFed is a grassroots advocacy nonprofit that speaks for 215 business groups representing 410,000 companies employing 5 million people across Los Angeles County. Nominees were vetted by BizFed leaders within deep roots in districts who represent massive network of association members and top-level investors.
The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce was presented the Bizzi award for the multiple roundtables they hosted this past year to connect members with high-level intel about strengthening restaurants, nonprofits, small businesses, large businesses, health care organizations, and more. The Chamber also participated in American Small Business Week to champion small enterprise owners who drive our economy. The Chamber’s active advocacy, PPE donations, signature events with elected officials, and monthly Government Affairs meetings have connected countless community members with the resources and intel they needed to thrive.
