President's Message

Welcome! I am excited and humbled to be the Alhambra Chamber Board President during the 2018-2019 year. I look forward to seeing you all at Chamber and community events.

As I had mentioned at the installation banquet, the motto of the Alhambra Chamber is "Our Commitment to Your Business." In this regard, the Chamber will continue public and private partnership with City Hall and the Alhambra School District; advance business development initiatives in the City of Alhambra; provide advertising and marketing opportunities; and continue to take positions and advocate for legislative issues of major importance to the business community.

I represent my company, Southern California Gas Company, on the board of directors, and I have served as the chair of the Governmental Review Committee for numerous years, so I am well aware of how important reasonable legislation and regulations are to businesses. The Chamber will continue to advocate on behalf of the business community this coming year.

Other initiatives that we will continue to promote and are still very important to the Chamber and the City of Alhambra:

  • Award scholarships from the Scholarship Program to the graduates of Alhambra’s high schools.
  • Continue to grow our Chamber by increasing membership in the Chamber.
  • Offer high quality events, such as our monthly mixers and Business to Business Networking Breakfasts.
  • Enhance our partnerships with other business groups and nonprofit organizations that promote the San Gabriel Valley and its quality of life.

You may not know that Southern California Gas Company is well entrenched in the community, as we have both an operational base and a branch office in the City, and therefore, provide jobs in the community. We will continue our community participation and support of Chamber and City initiatives and projects.

I look forward to another successful year for the Chamber and encourage you to stay in contact with our professional Chamber staff.

Best regards,

Helen Romero Shaw
