Legislative Committee to Represent Business in Manhattan Beach
Starting January 20th the Manhattan Beach Chamber Legislative Action Committee will be back in full effect to represent business. The committee will launch with a focus on local issues and legislation directly impacting the City of Manhattan Beach. Our goal is to unify business voices into a clear concise messaging to affect the change needed.
Recently the Manhattan Beach has been very active representing business locally with successes on issues ranging from minimum wage to local civic ordinances. The Chamber ensured voices were heard with regards to the minimum wage increase from Los Angeles County. Over the past couple of months working alongside our local businesses and other civic organizations changes have been made to ordinances ranging from tobacco retail licensing to unmanned aircraft use.
With the ever changing climate our business community is faced with it is important to get ahead of issues and prepare a unified response. The Legislative Action Committee will focus the voice of the Chamber to deliver the most advantageous result for the community at large. It is integral you get involved ensuring your voice helps shape the direction of not only the Manhattan Beach Chamber but the community as a whole.
The committee will be chaired by former city council member Richard Montgomery and Charles Gale from the Metropolitan Water District. We are fortunate to have two people with such tremendous experience in local government working with the community to build consensus and speaking points.
All are encouraged to join us every third Wednesday of the month at 4 PM in the conference room here at the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce. In order to represent business it is essential as many diverse voices are heard on each issue. Taking time now can save you and your business down the road.
