Santa Monica Chamber’s New Chapter

A new board will take the helm of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce June 13 as is hosts its 93rd Annual Installation Dinner at the Fairmont Miramar.

Alongside the dinner will be a showcase of local businesses; the evening’s there is “Taking Business to New Heights”.

The new 2018 – 2019 Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce Board will be led by  incoming Board Chair Jeff Klocke, Vice President and General Manager at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier.

Fun at last year’s event.

“Our Installation theme will emphasize the importance of business in Santa Monica and focus on three key points including conveying the benefits of the business community to residents, highlighting Chamber programming that benefits the community and growing membership to increase the Chamber’s voice,” said Klocke. “I’m proud to implement this vision on behalf of our Chamber members and to represent the business community in Santa Monica.”

Klocke also serves on several Chamber committees, is a board member and past President of the Santa Monica Police Activities League (PAL), serves on the public relations committee for the Special Olympics Southern California and serves on the board of directors for The Bay Foundation. Klocke is the Chairman of the Branding Task Force committee and member for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).

“The Chamber’s Installation Dinner give us an opportunity to recognize our members for all that they do throughout the year to support the Chamber and Santa Monica, and discuss the Chambers role as the convener and catalyst to provide opportunities for new leadership to emerge,” said Laurel Rosen, President and CEO of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce. “This will be a wonderful evening as we thank our 2017-2018 Board of Directors and our Chairman West Hooker-Poletti – who did a magnificent job leading us during the past year. We will also be swearing in the 2018–2019 Board that will include our new Chair Jeff Klocke.”

A special highlight of the Chamber’s Installation Dinner is the recognition of exceptional individuals and businesses for their contributions to the Chamber, the community, and in helping make Santa Monica a great place to do business. Ellis O’Connor, MSD Hospitality, will be honored with the Roy E. Naylor Achievement Award. Kaiser Permanente and Perry’s Café and Beach Rentals will be presented with the Bob Gabriel Community Service Business Award.
