Chamber President's Message
To Our Guest & Members,
The Chatsworth/Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce has been proudly serving our local businesses for over a century. What we do is two-fold: we are here to support local businesses and help them grow and thrive. And we are also here for the residents of the communities we serve as a resource for them to easily find the services they need, and to keep it local. We know the challenges small businesses face, and it is our pleasure and our duty to help them flourish, and keep the economy in our communities flourishing as well.
The Chamber does a fantastic job of giving local businesspeople the opportunity to network with other local businesses. Face-to-face contact with your business partners and customers, networking with peers, developing relationships, and supporting those with whom you do business is what doing business is all about... whether you employ five, or five thousand. Doing business with a person that you know well, and grow to trust, means everything. Rather than relying on Yelp reviews or blindly choosing a business from the phone book, the Chamber allows you to meet new people and find your own personal “rolodex” where you can refer their business to your own network of people with confidence.
I've heard so many people say they joined a Chamber but didn’t get anything out of it. I asked them how many events they’ve attended and their answer is usually one or none. When you join the Chamber, whether you’re shy like I was or just busy, you need to put in the time and attend at least one event a month. Get to know your fellow Chamber members, and over time, you will see the benefit, like I did. Since joining the Chamber so many years ago, those “strangers” that I met at my first event have become my friends, my resources, and people that I know I can trust.
Thank you to all past and current members, volunteers, Board of Directors, employees, executive directors and community leaders for helping to build our Chamber to the successful resource it is today.
Remember, the Chamber works for you, when you work with the Chamber.
Sincerely and proudly,
