“Joining the Encino Chamber of Commerce back in 1987
was one the most positive and constructive things I have done.
I have made excellent business connections with many of
the Chamb
er members, acquired property from members
or their referrals and became the Vice Chairman and Director
of a bank throu
gh relationships related to my board
participation.  Chamber members have become tenants
in my properties, including four Encino Chamber past-presidents.

I participate in numerous other chambers in the San Fernando

Valley, and by doing this I have seen the quality of members
in the Encino Chamber.  This quality is revealed by the
fact that over 50% of the prestigious
Fernando Award* winners have been Encino Chamber members.”

*The Fernando Award is the highest award for volunteerism and philanthropy
in the San Fernando Valley. It is supported by the Valley Chambers of Commerce,
civic and philanthropic organizations, entrepreneurs and corporations located in
the San Fernando Valley.


Locating services and products from reputable, dependable
and responsible companies can be a daunting task. As an
Encino Chamber member I have had the opportunity to meet
other business owners and develop meaningful relationships
with them. This is a tremendous help when selecting a company
to use, such as Auto Aid; West-Val Pharmacy; Roman Kniter, D.D.S.;
and Paul Davis  Insurance Services (health insurance and
Medicare supplemental insurance).

“I have joined the Encino Chamber right after starting my business in 1988.  I have been an active member as well as a board member since 1991. Throughout these years I have created long lasting relationships with the chamber members and have given and receive business.  I exclusively deal with the Chamber members.  Last year I purchased a home utilizing a Realtor and a Mortgage company who are Chamber members.”

“I was attracted to the Encino Chamber because they addressed issues important to the community at large as well as Chamber members.  Our business has prospered since joining and my family has used the services offered by members.  We also benefited from knowledge gained from speakers about various issues and opportunities including disaster preparedness and CERT training.  I have always said that the members are committed to the community and walk their talk.”

“West-Val Pharmacy membership is a “habit,” but a good habit. We do get some business from members, but not much. Yes, relationships are a plus and supporting other chamber businesses is our practice always. Being a member of the Encino Chamber of Commerce is my way of giving back to the community.”

As a local business owner, the Encino Chamber of Commerce allowed me to quickly get to know many of the other business owners in my area in softer settings where sales weren’t the focus.  This helped me establish deeper relationships that have led directly to sales, business partnerships and mentorships.
