PRESIDENT'S LETTER

AS I SEE IT

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT / CEO • LAUREL ROSEN

F

or more than a decade, Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Laurel Rosen has led the Chamber to effectively advocate for the business community. Staying true to the Chamber’s purpose to foster, enable, and facilitate the success of Santa Monica businesses, Rosen sees the Chamber’s role as crucial when it comes to making sure the community is financially healthy and that those living, working, and playing in Santa Monica can enjoy a great quality of life.

Business Growth Supports the Community “Businesses are what build communities,” Rosen said. “Santa Monica's large companies help attract small, local businesses to our neighborhoods. These (speciality food?) markets, dry cleaners and restaurants help to serve the needs of residents and local workforce, they hire local kids, donate to our schools and churches.” For every $100 spent at a local business, as much as $70 goes directly back into the community. Many businesses support local non-profits and charities, and through sales and use tax revenue, business license taxes, and transient occupancy taxes more than $160 million was generated for the City’s General Fund last year. Measure Y (sales + use tax) also generated $8 million in funding for the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD), and Measure GSH is expected to generate additional $8 million this year for the district, and will fund the construction and preservation of affordable housing. “Large and small, these companies are supporting our communities,” Rosen added. “The Chamber helps these businesses connect with one another and have a stronger voice with local government. By doing that, your neighborhood and the entire community will thrive.” Women Business Leaders While supporting businesses has always been important to the Chamber, Rosen has led the charge to better connect with female business leaders. Through the Organization of Women Leaders (OWL) the Chamber celebrates and inspires women to come together to develop personally and build success for their businesses. OWL partners with City of Santa Monica’s Commission on the Status of Women to host a networking breakfast in honor of International Women’s Day and spends Women’s History Month looking for ways to support women and help them grow in the community. “This year’s feature story showcases some of the most incredible minds in Santa Monica, from all backgrounds and industries,” Rosen said. “Across the board we have very strong women leadership, and their stories are inspiring.” Moving Forward Recognizing that the Chamber is a cornerstone in the community, Rosen is focused on continuing to help members prosper and succeed through a proactive working partnership with all levels of government and community organizations. “It takes a lot of effort and determination to run a business successfully, and that’s why we do everything we can to help business owners thrive,” Rosen said. “Businesses are good neighbors, and they’re all playing a part in making Santa Monica the great city that it is.” Laurel Rosen, President / CEO Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce

HE WOMAN

2018

is proving to be another powerful year for women. In the wake of the Women’s March, #MeToo and #TimesUp, women are taking the lead, shaping discussions and driving changes in norms, values, and attitudes. In fact, from the workplace to the boardroom, perceptions of diversity and inclusion are shifting, and women are taking their rightful place in the conversation and at the table. And it isn’t just the leaders who are stepping up. Mothers, daughters, and hourly workers are linking hands with thought leaders, decision makers, and CEOs to unify their voices and change the status quo. s m c h a m b e r. c o m

YEAR OF THE WOMAN

he City of Santa Monica is home to 92,169 residents and 47,623 are women and girls. Focusing on women and their contributions to the community is not new here. The Santa Monica Commission on the Status of Women works to ensure that Santa Monica is a place where women and girls can fully realize their potential and have a strong voice in all aspects of the community. The Commission recently updated their 2004 “Report on the Status of Women and Girls” which looks at issues of inequality, the changes in status for women and girls, and ways to facilitate needed improvements. The organization also partners with the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce

Organization of Women Leaders (OWL) each year to host the OWL International Women’s Day Breakfast to herald Women’s History Month. This year the event was themed, “Nevertheless She Persisted: Honoring women who fight against all forms of discrimination against women” and perfectly captured the spirit of the outstanding women who call Santa Monica home. Women leaders have long been celebrated in Santa Monica, and OWL provides them with motivation, support and connections. Women make up 47.1% of the workforce in the city, and predominately work in “pinkcollar” professions such as arts/design, administrative support, education, healthcare, personal care, and sales. The women in the community are educated

too, and the proportion of adult women residents whom have completed a Bachelor, Graduate or Professional degree increased 11.2% from 2000 to reach to 61.5% in 2013. In 1997, 26 percent of American business owners were women. That number grew by only 3% nationwide, registering at 29 percent in 2015. However, Santa Monica’s numbers were higher as women-owned firms operating in the city increased 13.5% from 6,542 in 1997 to 7,420 in 2007. That number continues to rise with the latest Census data showing 7,864 in 2012. These numbers matter as the 9.9 million womenowned businesses in the U.S. generate upward of $1.6 trillion in revenue and $290.5 billion in employee wages. From the Pier to the C-Suite, Santa Monica is filled with vibrant, powerful women handling a multitude of roles


POWER OF PERSPECTIVE Kathryn E. Jeffery, Ph.D., Superintendent and President of Santa Monica College, traveled a great distance, literally and figuratively, to reach the position she has today. The youngest of five children, she grew up in Oklahoma City and worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Las Vegas, Nevada; and in different parts of Northern California before coming to Santa Monica. Add to that a passport full of international experiences, and it’s easy to see why she brings a global perspective to her work. “Sometimes, it is hard to know what you don't know," Dr. Jeffery says, "but travel takes you out of your comfort zone. It challenges you to get out there and experience something new, different. There are so many ways to view the world and the people around you. “Travel broadens your perspective and shows you more things to appreciate about yourself and others.” From Oklahoma, California seemed like the other side of the globe to Dr. Jeffery, yet today she’s very much at home in Santa Monica. In her current position, she has the opportunity to influence and make higher education decisions on how to best serve students, which she defines as one of her

greatest professional and personal opportunities. Further she stated, “I’m fortunate to have grown up during the Civil Rights era, in a time where I learned to use my voice to address restrictive norms and challenges. "I always pushed the boundaries. I set high goals, met them, and exceeded them. When I saw opportunities, I went after them because I was talented and capable. I opened doors for myself and held them open so others could follow. If there was something I thought I could do well and that would benefit others in a meaningful way, then I was and am fearless and limitless.” POWER OF POSSIBILITY Entrepreneur, tech educator, fashion designer, philanthropist, and public speaker, Dr. Sabrina Kay currently serves as the Chancellor and CEO of Fremont College. She understands the meaning of hard work, and believes that anything is possible. Despite not speaking a word of English, she started her career as a computer fashion designer shortly after arriving in the U.S. as a college student and single mother with her young daughter in tow. It was admittedly out of necessity that she caught the entrepreneurial bug, and she quickly founded, operated, and exited seven successful enterprises allowing her to retire in her 30’s and focus on philanthropy. She also earned four graduate degrees, served on more than 30 charitable

and civic boards, received various awards, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania, USC, and UCLA. “Life can be challenging," Dr. Kay says. "We eventually learn to juggle many balls – but may not be always graceful. Learning to juggle at least three important balls at a time is the key for balance – Career, family, and self-care. Until recently, I thought work life balance was a myth and many times dropped self-care. I am learning how important it is to take care of me.” Dr. Kay recommends that while it’s important to take care of ourselves, it’s almost impossible to always have that work-life balance, especially if you’re a first time entrepreneur. “Hard work and tenacity have their moments," she says. "Rather than stressing out about the work-life balance all the time, know that you pay your dues with hard work in the early years and work towards eventually achieving your life balance. As long as you know that, and you’re mindful, each day gets a little bit easier. It’s a process and anything is possible with hard work, including self-care.”

the Company’s Executive Management Committee. She has been a major catalyst for change, playing a lead role in facilitating the integration of Lionsgate and Starz following the studio’s $4.4 billion acquisition of the premium pay network in December 2016. She helped shepherd the combination of Lionsgate and Starz’s New York offices and orchestrated the relocation of Starz’s West Coast offices to Santa Monica right next door to Lionsgate’s 2700 Colorado Avenue headquarters. She also managed a major renovation of Lionsgate’s own stateof-the-art offices that was completed earlier this year. In addition, Ms. Somaini has been a leader in overseeing executive staff development at Lionsgate. Throughout her career, she has worked hard to create her own opportunities and realizes success is not always linear. “I’ve taken opportunities to go backwards in order to go forward," Somaini says, "and sometimes when everyone else was going left, I’ve felt like I should go right.” She’s helping others create opportunities too, and created an executive training program affectionately nicknamed “Minions

to Moguls” to engage and mentor the company’s next generation of executives, as well as a less structured group that consists of people she's hired, generally straight out of college. She has used these programs to help participants create goals and has focused on mentoring them as future leaders. “I’m excited to see where they go.” She hopes that the time she spends with them can give them the confidence they need to step fully into their careers and would tell any young woman planning to follow her lead to, “Make sure you have a voice and opinion," she says, " and make sure it’s heard. It is going to take a really long time for someone to notice you if you’re not tooting your own horn. “People see smart people when they have the courage and confidence to say what they believe in and what they think,” she added. “Just being visible and vocal is important. Of course, do it in a smart, professional way.” POWER OF PRESENCE Mom, entrepreneur, and author Mallika Chopra is also the founder and CEO of Intentblog.com, a website focused on

personal, social, and global wellness. Her intent is to harness the power of social media to connect people from around the world to improve their own lives, their communities, and the planet. Mallika is also the co-founder of The Chopra Well, a premiere YouTube channel that she launched with her brother, Gotham Chopra, and father, Deepak Chopra. With all of those responsibilities on her plate as well as a busy family, Mallika knows from experience how difficult it can be to balance it all. “I think that when you’re managing your family, business, and community obligations, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and stressed.” Mallika continued, “A few years ago, it felt really impossible that I would find a space where I felt more balance. I was really feeling overwhelmed and I couldn’t see where I would find joy and happiness,” she says. “Now I’m really in a great place, and I feel like I no longer have anything to prove. I think it’s something I worked on inside, finding more balance, acceptance, operating at a pace that is right for me.” For Mallika, living with intent is recognizing where she is, what’s practical, and taking the steps she needs to take to move forward. “One of the lessons my father taught my brother and I was to not take life too


seriously, and to not take ourselves too seriously either. That has been a big one.” POWER OF PRECEDENT Cynthia Renaud, Santa Monica’s new Police Chief, served as the Chief of Police in Folsom for the past seven years, and in the Long Beach Police Department for 20 years prior to that. She is also the 3rd Vice President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, has served on the Law Enforcement Executive Committee of the United States Attorney, Eastern District of California, is the President of the Central Sierra Police Chiefs’ Association, and a member of the California Police Chiefs’ Association. When Chief Renaud began her career 27 years ago, there were not as many women in law enforcement as there are now, and those who had been trailblazers in the profession were fighting hard to earn their places. “Some of them were literally the first

CYNTHIA RENAUD

women police officers in their organizations," Renaud said. "They helped me, first of all, by doing it. By showing the

women coming behind them that we did have a place in this profession and then modeling the behaviors and traits necessary for success.” Chief Renaud feels that in order to succeed, men and women need to be true to themselves, and for women stepping into similar professions, she says, “In male-dominated industries, women often feel the pressure to be ‘the same’ as the men, which to us, of course means we have to be better! So, we push, and push, and push ourselves. My advice to a young girl planning to follow my lead is this: take a deep breath, know you don’t have to be perfect, but do your best every day.” These women represent just a small fraction of the outstanding women who call Santa Monica home. And just as they have overcome barriers and shattered glass ceilings, there are many more living and working right here doing the same thing every day, as well as the future generations who are watching them and getting ready to follow their lead!

ducation matters, and in Santa Monica community leaders are focused on making sure that every child has the educational foundation they need to thrive. As part of that focus, the City, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, Santa Monica College, and community partners, have come together to form the Santa Monica Cradle to Career Initiative and find the answers to two key questions: How are our children doing? What can we do to help children thrive?

As part of their Initiative, the Santa Monica Early Childhood Lab School recently broke ground at the Santa Monica Civic Center.

The district serves 11,000 students in both Santa Monica and Malibu and offers Transitional Kindergarten through 12th grade via 10 elementary schools; two middle schools; one middle/high school; one comprehensive high school; a continuation high school; and a K-8th grade alternative school.

Dedicated to making sure that, “All students graduate ready for college and careers from schools that are safe, socially responsive and academically rigorous,” the district will create a self-reflective and shared system of accountability that consistently uses culturally relevant best practices to maximize equitable student outcomes.

Strategies and supports for the framework include the alignment of social justice standards to the California State Standards and the new generation science standards; with support for teachers to promote implementation of social justice standards across content areas, as well as providing them with professional development to help them create a learning environment where academic and socio-emotional goals are accomplished in tandem. SMMUSD currently boasts a graduation rate of about 95%, with the majority of students moving forward with post-secondary education options. Many students graduate and move on to Santa Monica College (SMC), a two-year community college offering a number of undergraduate programs. Accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, SMC is a thriving campus with approximately 34,000 students and more than 80 fields of study. The college has a number of excellent programs to prepare students for careers of the 21st century – including nursing and health care, solar technology and other “green” careers, entertainment

ure, Santa Monica is a laid-back, easy going California beach town, but with a number of cultural attractions, world-class shopping, and dining options, the city has also become a global destination. Voted “One of the Top Ten Beach Cities in the World” by National Geographic, in 2016 Santa Monica welcomed more than 8.7 million visitors who spent $1.96 billion.

mainstream, and the use of sustainable, organic ingredients is central to the cooking approach of the leading chefs around town. As a result, the local restaurants offer some of the freshest and most varied dining options in the country. From organic, vegetarian fare and California fusion to fresh seafood and top-rated steak, there are options for every palate, taste and budget. The food services and accommodation sectors are also huge employers, accounting for 14,910 jobs, and an annual payroll of $422 million. STAY There is no off season in Santa Monica, and visitors have their choice of 40 extraordinary hotels with rooms that range from high-end hideaways to world-famous oceanfront resorts, as well as a number of comfortable and surprisingly affordable hotel properties – most of which are adjacent to or within walking distance of the beach. To meet increasing demand, the Courtyard Santa Monica, and Hampton Inn & Suites LA/ Santa Monica opened in 2017, and The Proper (271 rooms) is set to open later this year.

amed by National Geographic as one of the “Top Ten Beach Cities in the World,” Santa Monica is known for its worldfamous Pier, sun-kissed beaches, and cool ocean breezes. While the city may have developed an iconic reputation for its laid-back California beach town charm, it is also a prime destination for those wanting to live active, healthier lives.


There are plenty of ways to get moving in Santa Monica. The Pacific Ocean provides a perfect place for surfing, paddle boarding, and swimming. The pristine 3.5-mile Santa Monica State Beach features volleyball courts, the South Bay Bicycle Trail and more. Beyond the beach, the Santa Monica Mountains offer dozens of trails for day hikes of all levels, and the city is also home to 27 parks. With almost unlimited options for residents and visitors to live active, outdoor lifestyles, many start their day hopping on a bike to get to work, heading to the boardwalk for a morning jog, or hitting the Santa Monica Stairs.

HEALTHCARE Santa Monica offers outstanding healthcare, as a number of world-class facilities call the area home. Healthcare is also big business in Santa Monica accounting for 11% of the city’s employment, and two of the city’s largest employers are Providence St. John’s Health Center and UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. Healthcare is more than an amenity, it adds to the economic vitality of the community.

PROVIDENCE SAINT JOHN’S HEALTH CENTER Providence Saint John’s Health Center, named one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for nine consecutive years, has a strong reputation for clinical excellence, and has been serving the community since 1942. With a full spectrum of care that includes leading-edge diagnostics and treatment, a 266 bed hospital, outpatient health centers and numerous outreach programs and

SANTA MONICA IS A COMMUNITY WHERE GETTING HEALTHY AND STAYING THAT WAY IS A WAY OF LIFE. A number of health and fitness practices have begun in Santa Monica and continue to emerge, and residents have their choice of yoga, Pilates and other fitness classes with some of the country's premier experts. There is also a wide variety of wellness care providers throughout the city. Whether you’re looking for a personal trainer, acupuncture, integrative medicine, chiropractic, massage, or reflexology, there are plenty of options from which to choose from. Adding to the area’s unparalleled wellness and fitness options, Santa Monica also features several Farmers Markets, organic grocery stores, juice bars and healthy restaurants. In fact, taking all of that into consideration, it’s easy to see why the 2017 Wellbeing Index shows that a lower proportion of Santa Monica residents suffer from many chronic health conditions – such as coronary artery disease – than the average American.

LEGAL MATTERS

NAVIGATING LEGAL ISSUES & PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS Hiring a business attorney is critical to starting and running a small business. You’ve analyzed your competition, studied your target customer, and received funding for your new business. Your accountant says you have a strong strategic plan for growth. Now it’s time to lease office space and hire employees – right? Think again. The input of a valuable partner is missing - input that could mean the success or failure of a small business - input from a business attorney. True, retaining an attorney can be costly. Yet, not retaining an attorney can cost a business even more. Going it alone can result in missed opportunities, business interruptions, expensive liabilities and the potential for legal action. There are many legal issues that need to be addressed when running a business, it’s critical to have a lawyer who can anticipate every possible twist or turn and who knows how to react to each development. Initially a business owner will need to determine if the company should be registered as a sole proprietorship, general partnership, LLC, LLP, or corporation. Laws governing these different business forms vary, especially in areas such as personal liability for business debts and business tax obligations. Different business structures provide different protections and risk to the business owner. When a business is at risk, the owner may be personally liable thus jeopardizing everything s/he owns. An attorney can help a business owner decide which type of corporate structure is best for his/her needs and type of business. In the marketplace, a business is defined by its brand and the intellectual property that illustrates that brand. All are entitled to legal protection. Intellectual property also includes proprietary designs, discoveries, inventions, processes, symbols, music and other private, business-related information. Trademark, copyright and patent registrations help a business protect those things that differentiate it among customers and clients. A trademark legally registers words, names and symbols that identify the source of a product. Protection from plagiarism of original writing is provided by copyright registration. Patents give owners the right to keep others from making, using or offering an exclusive item for sale. 42 I

Contracts are another minefield through which an attorney can show a path. Company owners will do business with many people: landlords, suppliers, service providers, customers, independent contractors and their own employees. Many of these transactions will require written contracts. Businesses lease many different types of facilities, from offices and warehouses to manufacturing and retail space. A lease is a binding agreement and dictates how and when the property may be used. An attorney will be able to tell if the agreement is appropriate for an owner’s business activities. Sales contracts detail the terms of a transaction including how and when

payment is to be made. Companies that operate without formal sales and service contracts leave themselves open to disruptions in the flow of supplies, merchandise and essential services. An attorney will ensure the terms are beneficial for all parties. Employment contracts can be particularly tricky. Legal protections, liabilities and relationships will vary depending on the working relationship. An employee contract details the terms of employment including pay, benefits and full- or part-time status. The employee works for the business detailed in the contract. However, many businesses also hire independent contractors. Because an independent contractor is exactly that – independent and not an employee – the terms of an agreement will be quite different. Other legal documents include an employee handbook, a confidentiality statement, and non-disclosure and noncompete agreements. A lawyer who knows small business will be able to review and negotiate beneficial contracts and employment materials. The best time to hire an attorney is before one is needed. A good attorney will not be cheap, but neither will be the liabilities you face without one. You can find the name of a qualified professional in your Chamber directory. Make that call today! u

THE LAW OFFICES OF ARTHUR G. LESMEZ, PC The Law Offices of Arthur G. Lesmez, PC (www.LOAGL.com), was founded by Mr. Lesmez in 1996. A lawyer since 1985, Mr. Lesmez was admitted to the California Bar after completing his undergraduate education at Syracuse University (New York), and his legal education at California Western School of Law in San Diego. For a period of 6 years, while in college and afterward, Mr. Lesmez was a licensed paramedic in New York, where he grew up. Well before that, Mr. Lesmez achieved the rank of Eagle Scout while a member of The Boys Scouts of America. For the first 12 years of his legal career, Mr. Lesmez gained experience working first for an insurance company and then private law firms, one with offices statewide. While at these firms, he defended large corporations, trucking companies, insurance companies, hospitals, doctors and municipalities in negligence cases where they were defendants. After this period, Mr. Lesmez considered his background, experience and knowledge

in civil liability and insurance defense, and determined that helping individuals who had been injured and the families of those who had lost their lives in cases involving the negligence of others was his true calling. He had always been a helper of others, and his defense background gave him a unique perspective on helping plaintiffs that not every other attorney in this area had. The firm grew from a single lawyer firm to its present configuration. Lawyers at LOAGL handle a wide variety of general civil litigation matters with an emphasis on negligence law, as it relates to personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, premises liability and medical malpractice matters from inception through settlement or trial. The firm also handles civil restraining orders for individuals needing them or those who find themselves facing such situations and needing help. With an extensive background in civil defense litigation, experience as a provider of pre-hospital critical care in emergency

medical situations, as a paramedic, and now over 30 years representing individuals, Mr. Lesmez brings a unique and very helpful perspective to his client’s cases and to the leadership of his firm. The firm’s lawyers are admitted to practice before all State and Federal courts in California, as well as The Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court of the State of California. In 1996, Mr. Lesmez was personally admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States of America. An extremely strong negotiator, Mr. Lesmez has settled cases for over $1 million. At trial he has been fortunate enough to obtain verdicts for his clients in the multimillion dollar range.
