MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

Learn what our members have to say about the Chamber!

As a Business Coach teaching selling/networking, I’m asked a lot about the Santa Monica Chamber. I love sharing that my experience has been outstanding…and I’ve only been a member for a few months.

In that short time I have gotten 6 fabulous new clients and referred and connected others that I’ve met at the mixers, speed networking and breakfasts. Santa Monica Chamber = Great Support, Fantastic Connections, Fun New Business!

Laurie Hacking, Step Into More Coaching

We support the Chamber to have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people who are interested in making Santa Monica a better place to live, work, and play for residents, visitors, and businesses.

John Maceri, OPCC

Membership in the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce has given me a faster conduit to City Hall and has facilitated interfacing with the City Manager and City Attorney with concerns in my industry as for example when the City passed an Ordinance proposing to ban "sandwich signs" denoting Open Houses in Santa Monica.

Michael Gruning, Pence Hathorn Silver - Partners Trust

I've been a member of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years. It's offered me, as a local businessman, so many outlets to improve and grow my commercial real estate business. There are several informative committees to join to keep you updated on the local scene, educational seminars offered to better market my products and fine tune my business skills, and many other fun social events to mix it up and get better acquainted. I owe my success to this Chamber. Thank you!

Jeff Jarow, PAR Commercial Brokerage

My membership with the Chamber has enriched both my personal and professional life. The Chamber provides me with valuable educational programs, strong committee partnerships and above all, people work with people they like! The relationships that I have built through the chamber will last a lifetime. It is my privilege to serve and participate. There is tremendous value in being a Chamber member!

Linda "Tish" Tisherman, Staff Support, Inc.

I find that the best benefit is the interaction with business leaders and local government officials to improve the economic environment for our community. I consider my company's chamber membership a contribution to the well being of our city.

I am a long time member of the Santa Monica Chamber because of its effective advocacy and community leadership. The Chamber is a place a business can turn to for guidance and support when facing the tough issues today.

Mary Ann Powell, Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier

Tegner-Miller Insurance Brokers has been a Chamber member for over 70 years. The Chamber has been an integral part of our long term success in Santa Monica. I have met great people through the Chamber. The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce opens doors to City of Santa Monica government that I could not open on my own.

Dave Nelson, Tegner-Miller Insurance Brokers

In addition to keeping me informed with all aspects of the City, The Chamber is a great medium for cultivating relationships with local businesses.

Evan Pozarny, Muselli Commercial Realtors

The Chamber has been an enormous resource to enable our hotel in not only Santa Monica but nationwide, and with the adept leadership and friendship of Laurel Rosen at the helm, many doors have been opened that otherwise would have been closed.

The chamber staff has been most helpful in getting my business built by being a wonderful liason on city and building matters.
