The following is a message sent by the Echo Park Chamber of Commerce as an open invite to individuals and organizations invested in Echo Park commerce.
I’m Kamran, your new President. Some of you may know me as the co-founder of Bedrock.LA. I’m honored to serve you and I’m very excited to introduce our new board and see everyone at our mixer Thursday, May 8th at Taix (more on that below).
If you haven’t met us all already, our new board is:
- Masa of Echo Park‘s Rhonda Reynolds as Vice President
- The Park & The Echo‘s Ruth Kim as Secretary
- Urban Hillsides‘ Darren Hubert as Treasurer
Some of you may be wondering where we’ve been for the first 4 months of 2014. Well, we’ve been very hard at work transitioning from the past board and bringing the EPCC into the information age. We have a new website, twitter and facebook accounts all with beautiful photos by Gary Leonard.
For any chamber of commerce, membership, participation and community are key:
Let’s talk Membership:
We have a brand new membership. Members can now not only pay by credit card via our new website http://EPCC.la but you can automatically renew your membership every simply by paying on our website (of course, you can cancel membership at anytime). The ability to have automatic renewals has been a major request from the membership. After a lot of hard work and a generous donation from Recurly, we have an easy, secure and important piece to healthy membership. If you have any feedback on this, we would love to hear it.
This is your Echo Park Chamber of Commerce and your opportunity to get involved. At the mixer we will be forming committees and are looking forward to working closely with you to bring Echo Park business to its full potential.
Community (here is the mixer part!):
Commerce for our first 2014 General Meeting/Mixer event on Thursday May 8th, 2014. We will be introducing our new board as well as our agenda for this year. As busy local business owners, we know you don’t always have a chance to get to hang out with your neighbors so don’t miss this opportunity to come out and meet your fellow business people and help improve our business community through our shared resources. Please RSVP here so that we can get an idea on refreshments and please do pass along the invitation to other business owners. If they’re not already on our mailinglist, they can also subscribe at EPCC.la.
