THE VOICE OF BUSINESS
The Chamber strives to be the strongest voice for the local business community. The organization supports a positive economic climate in which commerce in the local area, city and state can continue to flourish and remain competitive and diverse.
The voices of many are significantly stronger than the voice of one. The Chamber represents approximately 550 businesses and over 15,000 employees. Together, our voices will be heard and we can make a difference in the local political landscape.
The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce “Policy Pillars” is a living document that will continue to evolve and change. These positions are designed to set a framework when making decisions on policy, but are to be weighed with the inevitable changes of our community and business climate.
These positions were accepted in accordance with a vote by the board of directors on January 17, 2013.
