    Jason Loeb Chairman of Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce

    in Business

    If I've learned anything throughout my career, it's the power of relationships. When launching my first company, Sudsies Dry Cleaners, I joined the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce with the hope that it would help me uncover networking opportunities. However, any member soon finds that an affiliation with this organization is so much more fulfilling than simply advancing a business – it's about the people. Throughout my tenure, I've been able to tap into the minds of the area's greatest industry leaders, whose shared experiences and best practices have marked my life both professionally and personally. My once-small business has now grown into several companies, but most importantly, my networking relationships have grown into friendships.
    Sitting on the Board of Governors for 14 years, I'm excited to now lead and advance the Chamber's exceptional culture. I've watched this group evolve into an A-list team of passionate, dynamic people who all understand and are eager to answer the needs of its membership. With their support, I'll be able to drive opportunities and policies that benefit the organization, but also demonstrate our priority to foster a strong community in which businesses, residents and visitors can thrive.
    Joining the Chamber has proven to be an invaluable experience and it's my personal mission to ensure the same rewards for our existing and future members. From the seasoned to the promising, each member has the power, through strong relationships, to impact and contribute to the development of this great city. As your leader, fellow member, mentor, learnee and friend, I look forward working with you.

    At your service,
    Jason Loeb
    Chairman

    Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce Benefits

    in Current Events

    We have a couple of returning guests this morning, Jeri Wilson and Pamela Rice, representatives from the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce.


    Jeri Wilson is the Owner and Business Development Director of Your Actualized Visions Advertising Agency. Jeri started her agency 2 years ago after working in the advertising field for 7 years at one of the world’s largest agencies. She began her own agency after hearing from clients how much they enjoyed working with her, but hated the company she worked for. A group of clients urged her to start her own agency stating they would be her first clients. After hearing this for a few years, she took on the challenge and has never looked back. Pleasing her clients is Jeri’s top priority and Your Actualized Visions Advertising offers everything under one roof.


    Pamela Rice has a background in Medicare Health Insurance/Sales.  She was in the Healthcare industry for 20+ years and decided to change her career and get out of the health care industry altogether.  Pamela started at Office Depot in 2004 and is currently a Territory Development Manager for the South Bay communities. She is responsible for growing the territory for new business as well as maintaining the current client base.  Pamela loves her job and enjoys the social aspect of connecting with different people in the various chambers she does business with daily.


    This morning, Jeri and Pamela are going to tell us some of the benefits and advantages of being a member of the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce
