Governmental Affairs Breakfasts (GABs)
Throughout the year the Public Policy Committee (PPC) hosts several Governmental Affairs Breakfasts (GABs). The GABs are designed for our Chamber's business leaders to meet with, in an informal setting, with key industry leaders and political officials. Past GABs have included Senator Curran Price, Senator Rod Wright, Senator Ted Lieu, Los Angeles World Airports Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, Los Angeles City Councilman Greig Smith, and many more.
In 2011, the Public Policy Committee launched a series of GABs dedicated to meeting the 2012 Los Angeles City Mayoral Candidates.
During major elections the Chamber works to host Candidate Forums, so that both the Chamber membership and residents of the LAX coastal area can meet the individuals running for office. Past candidate forums have been held for the leadership positions of the Los Angeles City Council District 11 and the 36th Congressional District.
