Jan 24 – Benefits of Belonging to a Chamber

Michael Calvert

January 24th Meeting
(Meeting on the fourth Wednesday this month only.)

Michael Calvert, Executive Director
Downey Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber is a non-profit, action-oriented membership organization serving as the leading spokesman for, and the representative of, business in Downey. A voluntary organization, it unites business and professional people and firms into a central agency which lends itself to improving business and building a better community. It directs its energies toward improving the community and conditions under which business is conducted.

The Chamber enables its members to accomplish collectively what no one
could do individually. Its strength lies in attracting the greatest number of firms and individuals into membership to create a pool of resources from which can be drawn ideas, energy and financing. The Chamber is people – its membership.

Finally, becoming active in the Chamber is a great way to make valuable contacts by meeting other business and professional people in the city on both a business and social basis.
