“People in the West, in general, love their cars,” she said. “Traveling by car has been a way of life in L.A., but the Metro system is already serving 1.4 million riders every day. The process comes slowly and it happens in baby steps.” “We’re not suggesting people give up their cars, but we’re saying, ‘Try transit for one day a week— for a doctor’s appointment to commute to work, whatever. Try our online trip planner. Many people who try it find that it is a lot simpler than they thought.” Like a balanced diet, Tonilas said public transportation should be part of every commuter’s menu of options. “We don’t look at the car as the enemy, more like a

She outlined the plan as follows:

The change is already being noticed.

We strive to make all guest visits efficient, hospitable and memorable by providing modern, world-class facilities and services that showcase the ambiance and excitement of L.A. and the lifestyle and warmth of sunny Southern California.

The millions of people who travel through our airport are not just passengers or customers; they are guests who are valued and appreciated and deserve to be treated as such. Our vision is to work with our LAX partners to foster an LAX experience that showcases the excitement of Los Angeles in ways that are modern, efficient, innovative, exciting, yet caring. The use of the term “guest” is not just a name change, it’s a culture change. It’s an immediate attitude and mindset shift in the way we view

and treat our passengers. The words we use are powerful because when we change the way we speak, we change the way we act. Our investment in and support of these programs are unprecedented and are part of our big and bold commitment to being customer-centric, especially in the midst of our $14-billion capital improvement program. How we treat people and how we make them feel during their airport journey is a critical part of our mission to connect the world to people, places and cultures. Helping to ensure that the more than 50,000 employees of LAX provide an exceptional experience to its millions of guests, the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) recently approved contracts for airport-wide customer service training, performance management and employee-appreciation programs—designed to engage the entire airport community and ensure service excellence.

with a mission to “serve the world, connecting people, places and cultures” and a vision of “gold-standard airports—delivered.” “I envision a future where LAX will be recognized among the top tier of major airports worldwide for quality of passenger experience,” Flint said. “We want to address every aspect of performance from airport access, check-in and security lines, fixedbase operators and other general aviation business service levels: to food quality, restroom cleanliness and gate crowding.

She said she also wants LAX to be a leader in sustainability. “Sustainability affects all of us as it helps us lower the cost of doing business at the airport. It leads to better products and enhanced customer relationships with our stakeholders, and it creates more opportunities for employees to make a positive impact in the community where we operate,” Flint said. “At LAX, we are highlighting sustainability by adopting design guidelines that will apply to all future capital projects at the airport. The guidelines will encourage energy efficiency, reduced emissions—leading to better air quality. We will look for more solar opportunities, more charging stations for electric vehicles and use recycled water for our landscaping.” “All of these sustainability features

According to early projections, Los Angeles 2024 is expected to leave behind a surplus of $161-million, despite the potential $6-billion cost. The official LA 2024 bid states, “we designed a plan centered on sustainability and fiscal responsibility. That means maximizing the use of our existing world-class facilities, civic spaces, unique geography and iconic backdrops.” In holding with the Olympic Agenda 2020—the official strategy of the International Olympic Committee to strengthen the Games and

Currently, state legislation SB1465 is under review to create an Olympic Games Trust Fund to potentially alleviate many of these concerns, but is awaiting action by Governor Jerry Brown.

From media coverage to local excitement, even if Los Angeles does not reign triumphant against Budapest and Paris at the International Olympic Committee Session in Peru this September, the effects of the Los Angeles 2024 Olympic Bid will still be heard, seen and felt.

lAX COASTAL DOES METRO A personal perspective on taking public transportation in Los Angeles

ou’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times, and you’ve sat through hours of traffic as we try to make Measure M come to fruition: take public transportation. The benefits have been touted; whether you’re looking to avoid traffic or save the planet, everyone knows that public transportation is a great idea, and yet, according to census data, only 7% of Los Angeles County residents are regular users. Why? What is keeping us from making the right decision when it comes to our daily commute?

Y

With horror stories abound, from urine-stenched seats to the “crazy homeless man” that everyone supposedly encounters, it’s easy to see why anyone would be hesitant to change their routine. But maybe we should. As your local chamber you know the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is here to fight for what is best for the LAX Coastal community, so in 2016 our staff and Leadership Academy class went on their own Metro adventure to shed a little light on public transit. Hesitation is often the child of fear of the unknown, so let’s take the unknown out of the equation and inspire engagement instead. Being unfamiliar with the Metro system in general, our first mistake was attempting to find our way Downtown on our own. At first glance, the Metro Bus and Rail System map is daunting. What do all of the numbers mean? Where is everything going? Is this really what Downtown looks like? Our

wrong. After circling for what felt like millions of years and making one poor gentleman feel incredibly uneasy as we followed behind him on his walk from the station to the street at a leisurely 3 miles an hour (only to give out a sigh of exasperation as we realized he was smarter than we were and did not park in this lot), we found a duo heading to their car and happily nabbed their spot. The time was now 8:43am. Overall confidence lessened by 15% (but we were surprised to find out you can park at this station for up to 72 hours).

heads started to hurt before even stepping foot on a bus, until we realized there must be a better way. We headed over to proud Chamber member, Google, and found our saving grace: Metro Trip Planner. The ease of using this system was refreshing; just say where you are, where you want to go, what time you are leaving, and how little you want to walk and viola! Instant game plan. Our game plan told us it was time to head to the Metro Rail Green Line.

Time to purchase our TAP cards. For those as unfamiliar as we once were, TAP cards are like credit cards for public transit: great for those of us who don’t often have exact change in our pockets and enjoy the ease of refilling our balances online. We found ourselves the proper kiosk, rejoiced in the lack of a line (confidence increased by 5%), and prepared to purchase 15 TAP cards for our Leadership Academy students who would be taking this Metro adventure themselves the following day. We happily pressed the button to purchase a new TAP card and learned the hard way to choose the correct option because, after that, things weren’t entirely self-explanatory. Were we just adding one fare? Did we want to add a total balance? How come you have to be as fast as The Flash to get a receipt? Confidence decreased by 3%, we annoyed a few people in line, engaged in conversation with a Veteran who informed us that the Military bus fare was discounted to $0.35, and bonded with the confused family at the kiosk next to us who looked just as lost and confused as we were. But luckily, after the first 2 cards, we got the hang of it and were buying TAP cards like a pro. Pro tip: Always buy your TAP card at a kiosk and not at the Metro office. When we called for support they informed us that the kiosk price was $1 cheaper!

Our next mistake was that karma finds you when you try to cheat. Don’t drive to the Aviation LAX Station, which is only a few blocks down from the chamber office, unless you are arriving extremely early and are looking forward to circling a parking lot, over and over again. We arrived at 8:32am, planning on boarding the 9:11am Green Line, completely confident that we had left ourselves enough of a cushion to avoid stress. We were

With smiling faces and a handful of TAP cards, we TAP-ed our way onto the platform just in time to hear our Green Line pull away from the station. Our smiles flagged a little, but the near-empty platform was almost worth it. The view was beautiful, the furniture was eccentric—complete with concrete lawn chairs—and small bits of literature were included as aesthetic enhancements. We waited patiently on the side of the platform head-

way onto the bus. Never doubt the importance of asking for help.

When the light rail arrived we joined the small group of passengers already on-board and took our seats. We sat by the window, for the first time taking in the scenery that we are normally dissuaded from looking at when driving a vehicle. We smiled as we watched the cars on the freeway who had to deal with traffic jams and inconsiderate drivers who didn’t know how to use their turn signal and, yes, we did feel a little like gloating. There was something incredibly freeing about the experience. The Green Line was going to take us exactly where we needed to go. It wouldn’t get lost, it wouldn’t get stopped by traffic, and it even gave us a little time to ourselves. Our morning commute was, for the first time we could remember, filled with peace. Next stop: Harbor Freeway Station.

We took our seats near the back and settled in for the longest part of our journey. This bus ride was estimated to take us nearly 30 minutes, so we planned on spending it in comfort and conversation. Our fellow bus patrons were engrossed in their own worlds of books and phones and iPods and none of them raised any red flags, contrary to popular media belief. The woman sitting in front of us laughed quietly to herself at our stories while commenting on Facebook. The gentleman to our left bobbed his head along to a beat none of us could hear. We watched cars disappear from view as they were left behind, stuck in a traffic jam our Silver Line wasn’t hindered by as we continued along the 110 freeway on the Metro Express Lanes. Again, we felt a sense of quiet and peace, as well as satisfaction, as we were finally able to drive on the bus-only lanes that have been taunting us since their construction.

For the final leg of our journey we needed to board the Silver Line at the Harbor Freeway Station, so we hopped off our rail, looked around for the proper signs to tell us where to go (good on you, Metro! Your signage was definitely on its A Game), and caught the proper vantage point just in time to see us missing our ride. Again. Confidence did not decrease—we started to notice that sometimes these things happen and Metro seems to account for it—and we walked down two sets of stairs to our stop. By this time we noticed we were waiting for a bus, not a rail (we must’ve missed that note on our trip planner) and that there were two options for the Silver Line: 910 and 950x. Again, confidence did not drop, rather we did what any normal person does when lost: we asked for help. So when the driver of the 950x Silver line appeared about 4 minutes later and we asked, “Do you stop at Spring Street?,” their nod raised our confidence level by 15% and we TAP-ed our

As we made our way Downtown, exiting the freeway for surface streets, we were able to once again enjoy a view that we so often miss. Rather than being hyper-aware of wayward pedestrians and getting lost in a myriad of one-way streets, we were finding Escape Rooms we never noticed, watching groups settle in front of the Staples Center, and looking at the people making their way up and down the streets. We are often averse to traveling Downtown, disliking the maze of busy streets and expensive parking and the hassle of traffic, but sitting on the Silver Line, with its charmingly ugly seat cushions and broken TV screen, erased our apprehensions. We could finally see the allure of our metropolis and the draw to using public transportation on a regular basis. Bus patrons even seemed nicer than fellow Los Angeleno drivers; instead of exchanging swear words

and middle fingers in the midst of a crowd, we saw a man holding the bus doors open for an elderly woman and a young adult moving his bag to clear a seat for another gentleman to sit down. Maybe there is a little something to togetherness. Who knows, maybe the world would be a nicer place if more people took the bus. True to its word, the bus pulled up to Spring St./Temple St. at 10:11am (after we stopped our philosophical inner monologue long enough to remember to request the stop. Pro tip: Pay attention to where you are, the bus driver doesn’t know what stop you are looking for unless you tell him), and we were finally standing right on the steps up to Los Angeles City Hall. We had made it, with very little in the way of mishaps and misgivings, and our City Hall looked beautiful as always. We stood there with a smile on our face, arms akimbo, and ready to do it all over again. (Okay maybe not, we really have to get back to work. Can somebody call us an Uber?)

INGLEWOOD AVAIRE SOUTH BAY With LAX being transformed into a world class airport and future Metro projects already underway, modern methods of transportation are increasingly influencing our way of life (and not just through traffic). Responding to that influence is Avaire South Bay, a transit-oriented apartment community built in the Inglewood neighborhood. Located across from the Aviation/LAX Metro Green Line Rail Station, Avaire South Bay apartments are not only luxurious but also public transit friendly, looking to breathe new life into the community along Aviation Boulevard. Opened in 2016, Avaire features over 250 apartments and is building a community “where your life can take flight.”

LOS ANGELES Sandstone properties A community’s success often depends on relevance and growth, not just the amazing men and women that work and live within its boundaries. Sandstone Properties, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm, is helping fulfill both of these requirements through their newest development along Sepulveda Boulevard. Johnson Fain, an architecture firm, is working with Sandstone Properties to develop a 175 resident, 5-story apartment building adjacent to the Howard Hughes Center that will not only allow for increased growth within the community, but will also offer over $87,000 worth of upgrades to the Sepulveda streetscape. This property is one of many working to improve living conditions and foot traffic throughout the area, however, as of print time a project timeline has yet to be released.

INGLEWOOD CITY OF CHAMPIONS Football is coming home to Los Angeles. After a two-decade absence, our backyard will once again be the home for not one but two NFL teams: the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. On November 27, 2016, local leaders and NFL representatives broke ground for the future City of Champions district in Inglewood. Designed by HKS, a New York based architecture firm, the City of Champions will be a multi-use district for entertainment, retail, and residential purposes, featuring a $2.6 billion, 80,000 spectator stadium. The stadium is expected to open in time for the 2019 NFL season, is already the host for Super Bowl 2021, and (if the Los Angeles bid is accepted) will play a prominent role in the LA 2024 Olympics.

Altitude Apartments offers a contemporary living experience, complete with salt-water swimming pools and private balconies, all within walking distance of the Promenade at Howard Hughes Center and Westfield Culver City Mall. Bordering the Silicon Beach corridor, these apartments provide a modern connection to a thriving community, as well as ease of access to LAX, the beach, and a variety of other local hotspots.

manhattan beach manhattan village mall June 2016 marked the beginning of an exciting transformation within Manhattan Beach: the renovation of Manhattan Village. Viewed as a premier shopping destination within the South Bay, Manhattan Village is looking forward to interior renovations, inspired by a coastal-chic atmosphere, and the new open-air extension coined The Village Shops. Reminiscent of a resort beach town, The Village Shops will feature new stores and restaurants with a family-friendly ambience, as well as pet-friendly areas, gardens, water features, and more. Construction for the North and South locations is expected to begin in early 2017, and they promise that “with more to come, you’ll love it!”

Connecting Your Local Business Community A quick glance into the LAX Coastal ecosystem, dedicated to your success

CONNECTIONS

RESOURCES

Binge Networking & Speed Networking

Certificates of Origin

Ditch your pitch at Binge Networking, where you can focus on connecting to fellow professionals over discussion topics rather than a simple business card exchange. Every other month Binge Networking alternates with Speed Networking, where attendees can connect one-on-one in 3 to 5 minute intervals to network and make connections.

The chamber is a designated organization for issuance of Certificates of Origin, documents required of exporters by foreign governments.

Networking @ Night Monthly Networking @ Night mixers enable members and not-yet members alike to mix, mingle and build relationships. Each mixer is hosted by a chamber member, whether it be a local restaurant, hotel or other business type, to showcase the great venues we have available within the LAX Coastal area.

Young Professionals The LAX Coastal Young Professionals represent local business leaders who are young, or young-at-heart, and join together for social events, community service projects and networking opportunities to better solidify their place as a rising generation of leaders.

INFLUENCE Striving to be the strongest voice of business in our region, the chamber works closely with members to develop and advance policy positions that foster economic growth and improve quality of life. The chamber’s impact is facilitated by connecting members with lawmakers to discuss critical issues and actively engaging our elected officials to promote a pro-business agenda.

Government Affairs Breakfasts Interact directly with the elected officials, policy makers and department heads of our area over breakfast. Attendance is limited at GABs so that members receive the “face time” they need with lawmakers and key leaders in order to express their views and engage in discussion.

Power Hour Power Hour is a series of VIP events for our corporate partners to engage with fellow industry leaders in an intimate setting. Attendees discuss important issues affecting business and listen to a presentation from a featured speaker.

Public Policy Committee Comprised of members interested in local policy, Public Policy shapes the chamber’s advocacy agenda. Focusing on analysis of critical legislation facing the business community, Public Policy is an opportunity for members to help position the chamber to take a leadership role in advocating for business. 20 | LAX Coastal Magazine 2016-17 | www.laxcoastal.com

Chamber Website Visiting the chamber website connects you to the current membership directory, calendar of events and chamber leadership. Members can also take advantage of resources such as a job board, the latest hot deals and press releases, and an informational blog. Visit www.laxcoastal.com to explore your digital opportunities.

Committee Involvement Education Committee is a conduit connecting businesses to education, advocating for high-quality education and promoting strategic partnerships. LifeStyle Committee is a women’s forum designed to promote relationships, economic empowerment, business exposure and fun.

LAX Coworking Offered as a resource for our local startup and entrepreneur community, LAX Coworking offers collaborative coworking, programming and mentorships to help elevate your business to the next level.

CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING KIEWIT

A company cannot stand still for long—either it goes ahead or it slides back.

562.946.1816 | kiewit.com

Since 1984—when the Fortune 500 powerhouse was simply two brothers with a strong work ethic—Kiewit has built itself a foundation of excellence. Focused on offering the best construction, mining, and engineering services a company can offer, it comes as no surprise to hear that Kiewit is no stranger to admiration. In January 2017, Kiewit was recognized by WIRED Magazine as the mind behind one of “The 7 Most Majestic Infrastructure Projects of 2017.” Seattle, Washington’s Hood Canal Bridge originally opened in 1961 as the world’s longest saltwater floating bridge. Regularly used as the main source of transportation between the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas, the bridge had fallen into disrepair over the years until finally undergoing a $347 million renovation and retrofit through the work of Kiewit-General. The bridge was open to traffic in April 2016, with rumors of future light rails and bike paths to make the already majestic structure more accessible to the public. Kiewit truly is a company that chases their dreams. In the words of their founder, Peter Kiewit, “we should make every effort to improve and expand our operations… a company cannot stand still for long—either it goes ahead or it slides back.”

understanding of how people learn can lead

A strong education often leads to a strong foundation for success, and when it comes to school sometimes success doesn't always equal a degree. For many, sometimes the most important aspects of education are the ones we receive in the interim: an advancement of knowledge, a building of confidence, and a sense of community.

to a new golden age of education.

Aiming to expand the traditional definition of community, the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) has joined the “maker movement” in order to further education while crossing national boundaries, and has now been rewarded with a 1.72-million-dollar grant from the National Science Foundation for doing so. Across the globe, a variety of institutions such as GSEP are creating “makerspace labs,” a collaborative effort to pair students from all over the world in order to complete tasks, conduct research, and help one another learn more effectively. This grant, secured by GSEP professor Dr. Eric Hamilton, will enable the university to establish 12 makerspace clubs in the United States, Europe, and Africa and spur research into the “maker movement” itself. Thank you for building knowledge and breaking boundaries, GSEP!

THE G2 GAllery 310.452.2842 | theg2gallery.com

Nature is beautiful, especially when you’re inside the walls of Venice’s The G2 Gallery. The G2 Gallery is an award-winning green art space, with a dedicated focus on contemporary nature and wildlife photography, featuring a philanthropic twist: all proceeds from art sales are donated to environmental causes. Visitors to this space can enjoy exhibitions with eco-conscious themes, created by photographers— often locally based—who use the camera as a tool to inspire environmental conservation. The inspiration for this model began with Dan and Susan Gottleib’s shared interest in both photography and conservation. It was these passions that became the catalyst for The G2 Gallery’s opening in 2008 and continue to drive them today. To date, The G2 Gallery has helped support non-profits such as the Friends of Ballona Wetlands, the Santa Monica Mountains Fund, the Theodore Payne Foundation, and many others, raising over $1-million dollars toward the environmental cause.

Technology is advancing. In today’s market, the cell phone that is resting in your back pocket is 32,600 times faster than the computer that was used to NASA’s 1962 journey to the moon; so not only is technology advancing, it’s advancing at an alarming rate. But the rise of technology is not only influencing our handheld devices, it’s also having an effect on other aspects of life, like our finances. Banking apps, mobile deposits, and wireless money transfers are the new norm. “Going to the bank” has never been more convenient, but are we risking our safety in return?

food & beverage zpizza

A small act of kindness can change the world,

310.342.0179 | zpizza.com

whether it is saying something nice to a stranger

Did you know that, according to Statistic Brain, 350 pizza slices are eaten every second? Pizza has become a food staple across a variety of countries and cultures, and while some might think that you can’t improve upon perfection, zpizza disagreed. Recognized as the “best crust on the planet” by LA Times, zpizza has been a slice above since 1986 and continues to improve.

or sharing a meal with a friend in need.

But serving delicious food isn’t the only reason that zpizza deserves to be recognized. Chris Bright, CEO, understands there is always room for more good in the world, especially to the world’s children. To facilitate that, zpizza has created multiple programs aimed at supporting local schools. From Jr. Chef Parties (where children can make their own pizzas and earn a Jr. Chef certification) to Spirit Nights (when a percentage of the day’s zpizza sales are donated to your cause) zpizza is truly trying to make a difference. One particular effort of note would be the Nice zSlice program. During the month of October, National Bullying Prevention Month, zpizza partners with local schools across the country to help make the world a nicer place. By rewarding positive behavior with certificates for free pizza and offering a $5 Smiley Face pizza, zpizza is working to increase daily acts of kindness, rather than simply punishing bullies for their negative behavior. Schools looking to participate in the 2017 Nice zSlice campaign are encouraged to visit zpizza.com/community for more information, or simply head to zpizza Tap Room at 5933 Century Blvd. in Westchester.

Currently, the Port of Los Angeles lists more than 40 Freight Forwarders and Customs Brokers within the Los Angeles area (with Manta listing over 13,000 within the United States!), but did you know the difference between the two? To put it simply, a freight forwarder is a company that can help you import and export goods and a Customs Broker deals with all of the paperwork that surrounds the importing and exporting of goods.* *Learn more at portoflosangeles.org

HEALTH & BEAUTY Here you will be treated like family because you are family.

playa pharmacy 310.823.4500 | playapharmacy.com

The science behind health and medicine has come a long way since its inception. Antibiotics have replaced leeches, rest and fluids have replaced bloodletting, and a knowledge of proper hygiene has replaced the need for plague masks. We no longer need to speculate about a patient’s symptoms, we diagnose them in order to provide the best treatment available today. But health isn’t just about treating an illness, it’s about treating the person; it’s about having a holistic approach. “According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health—the primary goal of holistic medicine practice—by gaining proper balance in life,” states WedMD. The idea is simple: treat the patient as a whole, not their symptoms, to find the best path to a healthy life. It isn’t always about what pill you can take (although modern day medicine truly does have its advantages), sometimes it’s about a lifestyle change to achieve the best results. When you think about your local pharmacy, do you think about pills and prescriptions or holistic medicine and a healthy lifestyle? At Playa Pharmacy, not only do they believe in a holistic approach to healthcare but they also believe in treating their customers like family. Their first goal is your optimal health, so, when appropriate, they encourage prevention and treatment through proper nutrition, supplements, herbs, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, and more. At Playa Pharmacy, they will customize your care and counsel you on the available treatment methods, all at a competitive price. In the words of Playa Pharmacy’s owner, Joe Chehade, “Come see for yourself, you’ll be treated like family.”

In the modern age, the majority of an individual’s time is spent indoors. From working in the office to relaxing at home, indoor-fatigue becomes a common complaint as well as a habit, even in spite of knowledge touting the health benefits of fresh air and vitamin D. The best solution to this issue is, of course, to spend more time under the sun, but what about those of us who cannot fit that luxury into our schedule? Perhaps it is time to bring some of the outdoors inside.

to the community for over 30 years.

In July 1989, NASA released a study on the benefits of indoor plants at producing clean air. House plants are one of nature’s way of reducing toxins and pollutants from the air, such as ammonia (found in household cleaning supplies), formaldehyde (used in paper towels and synthetic fabrics), and xylene (from paint and vehicle exhaust). Keeping indoor plants can also help reduce humidity and provide a sense of happiness or well-bring to those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. And of course, they’re nice to look at!

Speaking of things that are nice to look at, the Marina del Rey Garden Center is no stranger to beauty. Opening in 1977, the Marina del Rey Garden center has become a staple in the Westside and South Bay communities as a reliable source for top quality plants, unique statuary, and more. With a staff of highly trained nursery professionals, they are a qualified and friendly resource for all of your plant needs. Whether you’re looking for a fruit tree for your front yard, a “plant doctor” for a sick flower bush, or an aesthetically-pleasing succulent to brighten (and de-pollute!) your office, the Marina del Rey Garden Center is definitely the place to go.

hospitality cambria hotel & suites

We asked our guests what they wanted—and then delivered.

310.436.5339 | cambriaLAX.com

Cambria Hotel & Suites is no stranger to innovation. Choice Hotels—parent company to the Cambria brand, the first upscale brand in the portfolio—first formed in 1939 under the name Quality Courts United. Recognized as the nation’s first hotel chain, Quality Courts did not stop there. Expanding upon their reputation as an influential force in the lodging industry, Quality Courts was the first to offer guaranteed reservations, first to provide 24-hour front desk service, first to offer in-room telephones, first for non-smoking rooms, first global hotel app for iPhone, and now, the first to offer Cambria LAX El Segundo. City by city, Cambria is changing business travel for the better by giving their guests exactly what they want. For those looking to tie into Silicon Beach tech, Cambria LAX offers SmartCast HDTVs, free high-speed wi-fi, and the Choice Privileges app that removes the need for room keys. If you’d rather relax, try heading to their Social Circle Bistro—featuring a hyperlocal signature drink, the “Segundo de Nada” cocktail—or laying in a poolside cabana cooled by personal fans. And of course, their El Segundo location means you’re already within driving distance of any other Los Angeles perk, from Downtown LA to the beach.

Voted Best of the Westside

Currently, Cambria LAX El Segundo is scheduled to open in April 2017, and they can't wait to meet you.

manufacturing manufacturing in los angeles

Congratulations to Boeing, American Apparel, and Chevron for being

Los Angeles does manufacturing. No, seriously. We do. Although the phrase “American-made” might seem to be dwindling in the midst of overseas labor and manufacturing technology, Los Angeles is still considered to be the largest manufacturing hub in the United States. From our ideal weather (perfect for machinery testing) to the convenience of the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports (allowing for import and export ease), our LA backyard truly features multiple advantages to the manufacturing industry.

recognized in the 2016 Book of Lists!

Not only is our region a perfect climate for the production of goods, it is also the home to companies that are the best producers. In the 2016 Los Angeles Business Journal’s Book of Lists, three LAX Coastal Chamber members were listed among the top 20 Manufacturers (ranked by number of LA County employees): Chevron, member since 1995, was listed #19, American Apparel, member since 2003 and recognized as the largest apparel manufacturer in Los Angeles, was listed #3, and the Boeing Company, member since 2012, was listed #2. The Journal also states that manufacturing jobs in the Los Angeles area are on the rise, increasing by almost 10,000 over the past year.

Primex is working toward more environmentally-friendly and sustainable manufactuing practices. Not only do they recycle solid waste, water, and processed byproducts from their plants, but they also feature a 1.1-megawatt solar photovoltaic system, which can generate over 1.7 million kilowatt-hours of clean solar power—the equivalent of removing 1,283 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere!

From the production of aerospace technology to tortillas, the Los Angeles manufacturing industry is vast, profitable, and advancing each day, and we are proud that our members are a part of it.

medical services Leaving patients healthier and happier. After all, smiles are contagious!

siliconbeach.dental 323.539.3134 | siliconbeach.dental

For those of us living within the melting pot of Los Angeles, acceptance is almost a given. With a variety of cultures living within the same boundaries, not a day goes by without a Los Angeleno seeing and/or interacting with someone who is different. This practice becomes so every day that it is sometimes too easy to forget that this is not always the case. The idea of acceptance is near and dear to the heart of SiliconBeach.Dental, a dental practice in Culver City aimed at making their patients healthier and happier (because smiles are contagious). SiliconBeach.Dental has been working to better the lives of Tindi and Bibiana Mashamba, albino sisters from Tanzania. Albinism—while common enough that an estimated 1 in 20,000 people worldwide are born with it—is seen as a form of witchcraft in many parts of Africa, leading to albino children being hunted. Tindi and Bibiana have been granted asylum in the United States to keep them safe and help enable them to receive an education, and SiliconBeach.Dental has been working with both the girls and local programs to raise awareness, funds, and provide connections for the girls to receive medical treatement.

(AND TRAFFIC).

A teenager’s dream of a career as a commercial airline pilot moved one step closer to reality this year, thanks to the foundation he built through Flight Path Museum & Learning Center. A graduate of the Flight Path’s flight simulator program, Demetrius Ingram soloed his first flight in 2012 on his 16th birthday. Today he is working as a co-pilot for Clay Lacy Aviation in the Van Nuys Airport, flying VIP passengers aboard chartered business jets.

Learn what Reason Foundation is doing to Increase Mobility in Southern California at:

After graduating from the Flight Path Flyer’s simulation program, Ingram completed flying lessons at Hawthorne Airport and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. His first job, co-pilot for a small airline in Alaska, introduced him to Clay Lacy, CEO of Clay Lacy Aviation and Flight Path benefactor, who became his mentor before hiring him in January 2016.

pet services westside dogs la

Cary and Shana look forward to meeting you and your pets.

310.927.0089 | westsidedogsla.com

In 2012, Shana and Cary Tepper moved from New York City to Marina del Rey with their Yorkie, Cody. As loving and passionate pet owners, one of the first things they did after their move was to look for local pet care, but they struggled to find the excellent care that Cody deserved. The duo, passionate not only about their Yorkie but about all canines, decided to take matters into their own hands and opened Westside Dogs LA. Since 2014, Westside Dogs LA has provided dog services to pet owners in the cities of Marina del Rey, Culver City, Venice, and surrounding neighborhoods. Shana and Cary understand that finding a responsible, reliable, and professional dog-walking company is the key to achieving peace of mind when someone else is taking care of your pet. But how do you find such a business? Westside Dogs LA has some tips to helping you find the best company to take care of your beloved canine: Look for a company that is bonded and insured. Since you’re providing access to your home as well as trusting the company with your furry friend, finding a company that is properly licensed protects both you and your pet. Only sign up with professional, full-time companies as part-time organizations tend to be unreliable. Make sure that the company and all staff members know pet first aid and are pet CPR-certified. Always schedule an in-person meet and greet so that you and your pet can interact with the person you are about to hire. To learn more or to schedule your pup for their next “pawventure,” reach out to Westside Dogs LA to add a new friend to your family.

professional services neuroacoustics for peak performers If life is a game and we're all playing together, don't you want to be at your best?

323.356.7870 | drjuliek.com

You are not alone. While who we are and what we do are not the same, the process of discovering who we are and finding comfort and pride in that realization is universal. But exactly how do we come to that discovery? At Neuroacoustics for Peak Performers, Dr. Julie Kokesch Psy.D. and her Neuroacoustic Brainwave Entrainment Program work to capitalize on your human potential. Imagine going to the gym for your brain. Just like strength training can enhance the capabilities of your muscles, Brainwave Entrainment can enhance the capability of your brain, building upon the abilities you already have by making them faster and more efficient. The technique works by influencing your brain through sound waves. Sound and light is introduced to a subject resting comfortably in a NASA-designed Zero-Gravity Chair, acting as an electronic tuning fork, resonating throughout your body. During the program you become one with the sound, activating the auditory, visual, and kinesthetic centers of the brain to trigger the Entrainment response. After a session, athletes report added focus and clarity, artists and musicians state they feel more creative, and professionals express a state of relaxation and deeper sleep. By unlocking your potential, you can truly become a Peak Performer. Isn’t it time for a little discovery?

real estate betty betts escrow company

Home sales in Westschester, California have increased 46% from 2015.

310.670.2398 | bettybettsescrow.com

Real estate is a fluctuating market, and for some it is also frustrating. According to RealtyTrac, there are currently 3,249 properties in foreclosure within the boundaries of Los Angeles, with only 1,233 listed for sale. It is easy to grow disgruntled, dissatisfied with the housing market, but housing market trends are actually on the rise. The price of Los Angeles homes has been steadily rising over the past year. From September 2015 to 2016, the median sales price increased from $650,000 to $700,000 with more than 2,500 homes sold. And while sales in Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey were down 5% and 17% respectively, home sales in Westchester increased by 46%. There is a lot of information out there regarding buying and selling your home, but you don’t need to wade through it alone. Betty Betts Escrow Company is a full-service independent escrow company, with over 50 years of experience. Since 1961 it has been their goal to provide their services with integrity, accuracy, and superior customer satisfaction, leading them to become the strong real estate partner they are today. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, Betty Betts offers you peace of mind with a smile.

ONE LAST LOOK Proudly working for the LAX Coastal community—not just the LAX Coastal Chamber At the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce, our staff believes in making a difference. From building relationships to advocating for businesses and beyond, your local chamber is truly a full-service organization working to elevate the LAX Coastal region. While each staff member might have different strengths and personalities, we all have one thing in common: we don’t just work for the chamber, we work for the community. Christina Davis, our President/CEO, is continually connected to the LAX Coastal community. She is a rotarian for the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary, a board member for Badge of Heart, an active participant in the Renew Visitation Committee, and involved with the Westside Association of Chambers of Commerce and South Bay Association of Chambers. She also regularly speaks within the community on behalf of rotary clubs, church groups, or schools, to spread awareness of local issues or our area’s history. Originally growing up in Westchester, Christina is now sending her daughter to school in the Westchester community, proving her heart can never move too far away from her hometown.

Chamberlain Duru, our Vice President of Membership, is a constant advisor. From overseeing the LAX Coastal Young Professionals—known for their community outreach through local beach clean ups, school supply drives, and mentorship programs—to sitting on the board of directors for the Westchester Vitalization Corporation, California institute of Health and Social Services, and St. Bernard High School, Chamberlain makes sure to stay involved and is always around to provide insight into your outreach or fundraising strategies.

Judith Ciancimino, our Office Manager, is the friendly face of the LAX Coastal area. Recently named a Neighborhood Hero by Councilmember Mike Bonin, Judith is involved with almost every aspect of our community and always willing to offer a helping hand. Currently, she is a Westchester Elk, a Playa Venice Sunrise Rotarian, a board member for the Marina del Rey Boat Parade, and a volunteer for countless other organizations. No matter where you go within this community, you’re sure to see Judith’s warm smile.

Kirby Israelson, our Creative Director, loves to help make the LAX Coastal community pretty. Her talents can be seen within the pages of the HomeTown News, the walls of Airport Marina Counseling Service, the collateral of the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club, the business cards of multiple chamber members— such as Jen Law Firm and In Style by Bobbie—and on the faces and arms of local children (because she is also a face painter, of course!). Kirby loves what she does, and she is proud to be able to share her gifts with such a wonderful neighborhood.

The LAX Coastal Chamber itself is also a community partner, proudly partipating in community events— such as the WAM Block Party, Community Connections Expo, Jet to Jetty, and Race for Success—and engaging with all of our community's leaders. We build strong relationships with protective agencies, neighborhood organizations, homeowners associations, and government officials. As your local chamber, we make sure we are connected to all aspects of this community in order to better be a resource for those that matter—you.
