We encourage you to utilize the many services offered by our Chamber. As in
all successful organizations, we rely on voluntary participation and dedication

projects are developed and services improved.
The prime responsibility of the Chamber is to strengthen and promote the
Filipino-American business community of LA and its surrounding areas, and to
accomplish goals and objectives for its best interest.
My plan for this year is to continue building our success with our monthly
Networkings events, Workshops, Business Mixers, Business Expo, Job and career
fairs and to help our Kababayan get into new enterprises. . . . . To continue to
collaborate with our community partners such as VEDC, UCC, ABA-LA, LBA, and
