Economic Development Council


The Chamber’s Economic Development Council (EDC) consists of an exclusive group of top business professionals in the City who meet once a month for lunch at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant or virtually to network and to hear a high-caliber speaker talk about a relevant public policy or economic topic. It represents one of the Chamber’s most exclusive networking events.

The EDC has hosted speakers such as Former Presidential Candidate Michael Dukakis, Dodgers President Stan Kasten, Metro CEO Phil Washington and the Consul Generals of France, Germany and Israel. Members of the EDC include senior City officials and members of the City Council, Rodeo Drive brand managers, large property owners, money managers, bankers and lawyers who have done business in the City and Region for decades.
