From Lentils to Luxury: Meet Chamber Staff Member Alexandria Anderson!
Alex came on as our Marketing & Events Manager back in October 2016 after just moving to Los Angeles from Port Angeles, Washington. She’s no stranger to the Chamber of Commerce world – she previously served as the Events Coordinator at the Pullman Chamber of Commerce. Their biggest event – the National Lentil Festival that has brought nationwide attention to Eastern Washington for producing the highest quality lentils in America! Now Alex is currently taking on one of the biggest events in Beverly Hills: Beverly Hills Tomorrow 2022: A Vision for the Future at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. We are extremely fortunate to have someone as sharp and fun to work with as Alex on our team, and if you’ve been to any one of our Signature Events in the past 8 months, you know why!
