Nominating LAX Coastal Leadership

Did you know that the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c)(6), a nonprofit organization type that is classified as a business league? And that, as such, all of our funding is provided by you–our loyal members–through membership dues and sponsorships? Our board of directors are volunteers who donate their time to help elevate the business climate of the LAX Coastal region. We are an organization that succeeds entirely through the support of this amazing community, and we could not be more grateful.

As a community entity, the LAX Coastal Chamber is always looking for new leadership to get involved. From small business owners to CEOs, anyone and everyone can get involved with their local chamber if they are looking to make a difference. We rely on your engagement, and encourage you to let us know when you’re ready to facilitate change. From monthly committee meetings to serving as chair for one of our special events, there are many ways to let your voice be heard, but perhaps the most influential is serving on the LAX Coastal Chamber Board of Directors.

In accordance with the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce bylaws, current Chair, Liz Hall of the Inn at Playa del Rey, and the Board of Directors have appointed the following individuals to sit on the 2018 Board Nominating Committee:
