The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce was established on March 11, 1953, as the Westchester Chamber of Commerce. Since its inception, the Chamber has changed names seven times to better represent the areas and members it covers, before finally landing on “LAX Coastal” in 2007.

The Chamber’s mission is to promote business and enhance the vitality of the community. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) organization comprised of over 550 businesses with a board of 34 members.

As a 501(c)(6) organization, the Chamber is classified as a business league. According to the IRS, a business league is defined as, “an association of persons having some common business interest, the purpose of which is to promote such common interest.”

The Chamber is proud to serve the communities of Westchester, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, Marina del Rey, Del Rey and Ladera Heights. To find out more about how to get involved with your local Chamber, contact us today.
