Spread the Love

Spread the Love – support our members!

Valentine’s Day has arrived and what better way to spread love in our community than to spread the love amongst our members! The LA Metro Chamber Spread the Love Giveaway is an opportunity for our members to give a little back to our members, support each other, and have a chance at winning big!

What you do: Pick one of our Spread the Love envelopes, pay the amount on it, and give us contact info for notification of winners. Feel great knowing you are supporting Chamber members! Claim your envelope at an upcoming event, at our office, or over the phone – and enter for a chance to win one of four packages, each with more than $1,000 worth of member items (gift cards, service coupons, and incredible stuff – all purchased from members)!

How it works: We enter your name the number of times that is on the envelope. So, if you purchase envelope #136, you will get 136 chances to win and will have paid $136. We will spend $4,000 at our members to get the best services, products and more to make into baskets for you to win!

We love purchasing from our members, and hope you do too! This is a great way for each of you to spread the love!

November Chamber Breakfast

November 14, 2019

Martindale Country Club, Auburn

This month, we’ll have Breakfast for Dinner along with our regular speaker program at Martindale Country Club from 4:30PM-7:00PM.

This month’s topic: Veteran Hiring for Employers

Many Americans outside of the military are unaware of the many skills and experiences that veterans acquire while in service. Misconceptions about what sort of skills one picks up while in military service abound, and some employers mistakenly believe that the skills that veterans have are not transferable outside of the military world.

In an effort to clear up some of those misconceptions, Leo and Tom will discuss the overarching military culture, bring light to the many intangible skills that employers can benefit from by hiring a veteran, and address the misconception that the skills that veterans have are not transferable outside of the military world. They will also share some veteran hiring success stories to help you understand that hiring a veteran is not only a good idea, it’s good business!

Don’t forget to bring business cards for door prizes and networking and $5 for 50/50 tickets!
