PRESIDENT'S LETTER

AS I SEE IT

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT / CEO • LAUREL ROSEN

S

ince 2007, 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 has brought strong leadership and fresh ideas to the Chamber, and strives to continually improve and invigorate membership benefits. Today the Chamber continues to grow and represents more than 800 businesses and thousands of employees.

Salute to Business “Businesses are what build communities,” Rosen said. “They create the fabric of our neighborhoods, and provide funding for our schools, our infrastructure, and so much more.” In fact, businesses build communities together – business to business, business to city government, and business to community. There are a number of ways that businesses help build a stronger Santa Monica. General Fund Businesses are the economic drivers of the community, and in Santa Monica 9,542 businesses employ 89,853 people. Collectively, Santa Monica’s businesses generated $3.2 billion in taxable sales last year and raised $16 million in funding for schools alone. When looking at the city’s 2018-2019 $734 million budget, 56% came from General Fund revenues, and property taxes made up 15% of that fund, sales tax another 17%, Transient Occupancy Tax contributed 15%, and business licenses accounted for 8% Public Benefits There are currently 33 development agreements in place on completed, under construction, and soon to be under construction projects in Santa Monica. These agreements are resulting in some tremendous public benefits that include participation in transportation management associations, bicycle parking spaces, rental bicycles, showers, lockers, and future bike sharing stations. These benefits also include millions of dollars being earmarked for transit and infrastructure contributions – resulting in a stronger Santa Monica. Direct Giving Charitable donations help better the community, and in Santa Monica, businesses of all sizes support local non-profits and charities, either through direct or planned giving, by serving on boards, or by volunteering. As a result of this involvement, nonprofits throughout the city are able to do more and give more to the populations they serve. Workforce Development Having a competitive workforce is key in Santa Monica, and Santa Monica College is a huge asset to many employers. In order for workforce development programs to be effective, there has to be a strong partnership between education and industry. This is why SMC routinely collaborates with local businesses, and works to bridge the gap between local market needs and workforce abilities. Moving Forward Recognizing the important role that the Chamber plays in the community, Rosen remains focused on ways to build a stronger Santa Monica and help members continue to thrive and grow. “These companies, large and small, bring products and services to the community, to the neighborhoods,” Rosen said. “They support our community, and we need to support them and keep Santa Monica growing in the right direction.”

Laurel Rosen, President / CEO Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce

Building Resiliency to Keep Santa Monica Safe and Sustainable The first in the country to adopt a Sustainability City Program, today Santa Monica is recognized internationally as an award-winning safe place to live and work. Its residents and visitors enjoy the beach, biking and walking venues, great weather, educational and cultural programs, world-class retail and a thriving business community. To ensure the Santa Monica community remains healthy, safe and sustainable, in 2017 the city adopted the most extensive earthquake building retrofit ordinance in the nation.

Optimum Seismic is Santa Monica’s partner in building resiliency to preserve the city’s hard-won achievements in sustainability and economic growth. Protecting city buildings from collapse prevents the loss of business operations, tax revenue, critical business services and valued multifamily housing where employees and their families live.


Since 1984, Optimum Seismic’s in-house engineers and construction experts have been providing seismic engineering and construction services to make cities like Santa Monica safer and more resilient. Learn more at www.optimumseismic.com/smsafe Š 2019 Optimum Seismic, Inc. All rights reserved.

BUSINESS KEEPS SANTA MONICA MOVING Santa Monica’s economy consists of businesses of all sizes – from the mom and pop shop to the global brand – and that results in a robust and diverse local economy unique for a city of its size. The Santa Monica business community is a perfect mix, and there is no denying the impact it has on the development and vitality of the city. Mayor Gleam Davis says that

SANTA MONICA MAYOR GLEAM DAVIS

diversity plays a huge role in the success of the city and the services it provides. “Having a robust and diverse economy means that we as a city can do a lot of the leading-edge things that we want and need to do,” Mayor Davis explains. “For example, we can implement the Preserving Our Diversity (POD) pilot program, which helps us address homelessness in the home and on the street,” Mayor Davis said. “Our diverse economy also helps us support local schools and youth programs, social service grants, arts grants and more.” NEW DEVELOPMENTS YIELD BIG RETURNS When businesses invest in Santa Monica, they are often investing in more than their immediate structure or facility. Oftentimes, development agreements, or deals made between the city and project owners, grant the applicant variances and/or other perks, and in exchange, the developer provides public benefits. These benefits have greatly impacted the city’s infrastructure and have made life easier for residents.

There are currently 33 development agreements in place on completed, under construction, and soon to be under construction projects. These agreements have resulted in everything from company participation in transportation management associations to bicycle parking spaces, rental bicycles, showers, lockers, and future bike sharing stations. The agreements have also resulted in transit and infrastructure contributions, parking improvements and more. BUSINESSES ENGAGE IN THE COMMUNITY Businesses play an integral role in Santa Monica that goes far beyond tax dollars and economic impact. When owners and employees actively engage in the community, they support other businesses, join organizations, hold commission posts, and serve on boards. They give back in a number of ways – individually and collectively – and make Santa Monica a strong, cohesive, vibrant community. John Maceri, Chief Executive Officer of The People Concern, sees businesses helping in a number of ways and whether they are

There is a tremendous opportunity to get involved.” Getting involved has been a way of life for Fred Deni, owner of Back on the Beach and Back on Broadway. For more than 40 years, Deni has been serving Thanksgiving meals first to Santa Monica’s homeless, and then to the area’s senior citizens at Back on Broadway. He has consistently served the Red Cross donating supplies and turning Back on Broadway into a commissary for volunteers and disaster victims during the Northridge earthquake and Malibu fires. He has also served Santa Monica PAL - a unique partnership between the City of Santa Monica, Santa Monica Police Department, and community members that help youth develop a variety of skills, build trust, and gain the self-esteem needed to help reach their full potential with the annual Chez PAL Dinner and the PAL Culinary Program. Deni has also supported the arts, several AIDS organizations and more. Deni opens his heart – and his businesses – in a variety of ways to help wherever it is needed, and as the latest recipient of the Roy E. Naylor Lifetime Achievement Award from the Santa Monica Chamber

of Commerce, he personifies Naylor’s commitment to community and family. What started as a Thanksgiving meal for the homeless has turned into a lifelong pattern of giving. “Santa Monica has been very good to me. It immediately became my home 47 years ago, and I feel like I’ve lived here all of my life,” says Deni. “I have seen some wonderful acts of kindness from my staff and others over the years,” Deni said. “I moved from feeding the homeless to being a student of the world and trying to change the energy. I still have it in my heart. I want to change things for the better.”

making food donations, gathering hygiene and clothing supplies, or making in-kind supports, they are making a difference. Volunteerism has also become a popular team building activity and Maceri sees a number of employee groups come in and donate their time doing everything from preparing and serving meals to gathering supplies for welcome home packages. “Our experience is that there are many businesses that want to be active in the community,” Marceri said. It’s where they are located, their employees are spending time here, and as good corporate citizens they want to give back,” Maceri said. “Businesses that

Judi Barker, who owns and operates the historic Santa Monica Air Center/Barker Hangar understands the importance of engagement. As the latest recipient of the Bob Gabriel Community Service Business Award from the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, she tries to utilize the Hangar for as many community efforts as possible. “This is not just an award, this is such an honor and I am completely humbled and surprised to be honest, that I am receiving it,” Barker said. “To understand who Bob Gabriel was and to be given this award with his name on it by the Chamber is a highlight of my career.” It is an honor that is well deserved. Barker has long been involved in a number of Santa Monica nonprofits including the Santa Monica PAL, the Santa Monica History Museum, Santa Monica Kiwanis, Santa Monica YMCA, and the Santa Monica Museum of Flying. She also served on the Board of the Santa Monica Airport Association for 32 years, and has worked with Angel Flight, EAA, and the women’s pilot organization, the Ninety Nines.

BUSINESS PLAYS A VITAL ROLE Statistics reported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) show that businesses operating in local communities are the foundation of the American economy at large. Not only do they provide valuable products and services to consumers, they fuel local economies with tax dollars, spur employment, and create community pride and development. In Santa Monica, businesses play a central role, advancing economic opportunity and building a resilient city now, and for years to come. While the city is home to world class creative endeavors and media companies, startups, and tech companies, there are many aspects to Santa Monica’s diverse economy. From the Third Street Promenade to Main Street to Montana Avenue, Santa Monica is rich with shopping, dining, service, and

recreational opportunities. These are the destinations that visitors enjoy and residents rely on, and they are exactly what makes the city such an ideal place to visit, and perfect place to call home. Mayor Davis points out that oftentimes it’s these local businesses providing services and opportunities that residents connect with most directly. “It’s our favorite restaurants, shopping destinations, shoe repair,” said Davis. “A thriving economy provides excellent opportunities that our residents can enjoy and take advantage of.” “Remember, we’re all part of a larger community, and that consists of residents, people who come here to work, and to visit. Businesses serve all of them and are a crucial part of our community’s ecosystem,” Mayor Davis concluded. “Everybody plays an important part, and whether we need to get tires put on our car or want to go to the movies or to dinner, having the opportunities that those businesses provide is key. Not just for the revenue, but for the opportunities they provide.” To learn more about businesses in Santa Monica, and the work the Chamber does to foster, enable, and facilitate their success, go to www.smchamber.com. n

ome of the best and the brightest have received their start in Santa Monica. The city has long been home to the creators, innovators and visionaries who shape our world, and educators are continuing to make sure that students have the tools and the skills they need to meet the challenges of a changing world.

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) is working to help students meet those changes and recently broke ground on a new building at Santa Monica High School. The Discovery Building, which is scheduled to open by the end of 2021, will house 38 classrooms for the school’s M and O houses and will include science and computer labs, three multipurpose rooms, common areas and seminar rooms. The new building will also feature a full-service kitchen and cafeteria, 24 I

HEALTH & WELLNESS

WELLNESS IS A TOP PRIORITY IN SANTA MONICA

W

BY MELISSA MILLER YOUNG

H E A LT H & W E L L N E S S

hile Southern California may be synonymous with sun-kissed beaches, cool ocean breezes and healthy living, Santa Monica’s city officials wanted to fully explore residents’ overall wellbeing. In 2014 the city launched the Wellbeing Project, measuring the overall quality of life in Santa Monica. The Project not only looks at whether or not residents are healthy, but also if they’re happy and thriving. Officials have used their findings to set priorities and make decisions that are effective and relevant to people’s lives. Five years after launch, City Hall is preparing to host an international Wellbeing Summit, and officials remain committed to helping residents become healthier - body, mind, and soul.

Beyond the beach, the Santa Monica Mountains offer dozens of enticing trails for hikers of all levels, and the city is also home to 28 parks. Many start their day hopping on a bike to get to work, heading to the boardwalk for an early morning jog, or hitting the Santa Monica Stairs. A number of health and fitness practices have also launched in Santa Monica and continue to emerge.

NAVIGATING LEGAL ISSUES

BUSINESS RESOURCES

PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS & FUTURE

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 44 I

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. 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 non-compete 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

media outlets is essential. A good communication strategy can turn media into instant supporters. To keep messages on point, designate a spokesperson, and quickly train them to appropriately respond to media. Message “templates” should be written and updated regularly, tailored to each crisis as it occurs. Internal communications in a crisis is

What would you do if someone in your restaurant contacted the media because they saw a roach crawling on the floor? My restaurant client (one of the oldest, and most beloved restaurants in Los Angeles) called to tell me that there were 3 television trucks outside his place of business wanting to get the story. Must have been a slow news day, but they were there nonetheless! What would you do if there were multiple television trucks camping out on your hospital campus parking lot, waiting for updates on a VIP patient’s health status? My hospital client experienced this several times during the 15 years I worked with them. Examples: Once when a former President was in; once right after the Farmer’s Market Crash, when many victims were admitted to the hospital; and once when a high profile star was having a baby. (The media heard a rumor that the 46 I

celebrity faked having a baby and stalked the place everywhere to get the story). What would you do if a participant in a crazy endurance race collapsed and almost died? And there was no one to talk to the media except for some volunteers who had no idea what to say? (I was writing their statements as they spoke to the media from Boston. They were in Fresno!) “No comment” is not the answer. “Confessing” every minute detail, without any real thought, might not be the right way to go either. In my 20-plus years of experience in this area, strategically planning for a crisis before a crisis occurs is key. Communicating during a crisis is one of the most important elements of a workplace disaster. Here are a few key steps you should take when a crisis, disaster or issue occurs: An ongoing relationship with your key

Make sure all employees know who that spokesperson is and how to direct the media to them. No one else should be talking to the media. Provide timely, accurate, and clear information to your employees to prevent internal inaccuracies and rumors that could permeate from your staff. After an initial crisis occurs, set up a post-disaster communications schedule and daily meeting with key company stakeholders. The most critical information should be released as soon as possible. Once the situation stabilizes, it is good to post information at set intervals, such as every morning and evening. I was at my hospital client’s location 24-7 for 3 days

after the Farmers Market crash. Having a crisis communication plan in advance of a crisis helps in reducing misinformation, assures an effective communication flow, and increases the timeliness of messaging. The plan should include key contacts, templates and detailed procedures on how and when to share information and with whom. It should include multiple means of reaching key stakeholders, such as text messaging, emails, and home phone numbers. A business telephone hotline with a frequently updated recorded message should be set up, with the capability of callers being able to leave voice messages. The same messages on the phone line should be posted on social media outlets and your business website. The biggest challenge is managing outsiders who may share misleading information which may end up damaging your reputation. This is why swift, precise communication is critical during crisis – whether it affects your organization internally or the general public. Effective communication with media is essential. A reputable PR firm can help put in place a solid media communications strategy. When the poop hits the fan, it’s easier to reach your key media outlets when you know them well. Experienced PR firms can also provide in-depth training to ensure your spokespersons can confidently and effectively communicate with the media, as well as develop a living, breathing crisis communications plan, not a book that sits on a shelf, gathering dust. Again, whatever you do, please don’t say “no comment.” It leaves the reader/viewer/ listener with the impression that you might be hiding something, or maybe even be guilty of something. Oh, and one more thing: When you are being interviewed by the media, don’t drink or lie. Believe it or not, clients have done this! Drinking because they were nervous, and lying to make the story sound better. Not good. For more information about crisis communications, there are many resources on line. To be referred to a local crisis communications firm, contact the Public Relations Society of Los Angeles. u
