In 2010, I transitioned from the San Fernando Valley to Beverly Hills in an entirely client-facing industry. The Chamber of Commerce was an invaluable tool in getting my new network established in an opportunity-rich, affluent community. My Book of Business has grown millions of dollars due to connections made via Chamber events. More importantly, the opening of our branch was expedited thanks to the Chamber’s ongoing partnership with the City and its regular advocacy of its members. The Chamber has helped make my business a known quantity in Beverly Hills; I couldn’t have done it without them.
Each year, the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce hosts a number of high profile events for members and the public. These events connect companies to a vast array of businesses in the community, build professional development, and inform members about economic and government issues. Get a glimpse of the events through the photo gallery here.
