â€œTry not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.â€
â€” Albert Einstein
Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce membership could ultimately increase your 'value' ten fold. Please stop by so we can show you how this works. Even if you are a current Chamber member and do not feel it is working for you, please call, e-mail, or stop by the office so that we can guide you through the real value of Chamber membership. We have a wealth of ideas to help you promote your business through the Chamber.
And the Chamber is stepping into the 21st century with a new networking event to help your business make the necessary contacts you need to help build success. On April 21, the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce will hold its first ever Speed Networking Event: Power Monday. The event includes a 20-minute power presentation on how to present yourself more confidently and is followed by 'Speed Networking.' Successful speed networking sessions have been held throughout the country and now you have the opportunity to attend one here in the Crescenta Valley. Please call the Chamber for more information. Seating is very limited; make your reservation early.
