12 Spirit of Sharing

I am excited about the high level of energy that I see around the Oceanside Chamber office, at our Chamber events and on our social media pages. I believe this is a result of having a dedicated staff and an amazing group of members… people who are passionate about their businesses and their community. I credit our creative staff for continually developing events, workshops and networking forums that bring value to our business community. And I am truly grateful to have a membership base that recognizes the value that we offer and actively utilizes our services. It is rewarding to see many of our members volunteering to speak at our business workshops, sharing their expertise and helping their fellow chamber members to grow. And the networking doesn’t end when we close our doors at 5pm. If you are a Chamber member and have not yet joined our Oceanside Chamber Members Facebook group, I want to encourage you to jump on board and take advantage of the “around the clock” networking we offer. I am confident that you will find this forum to be an exciting and supportive environment in which our staff and members are encouraging and promoting one another. I want to thank all of our members who support us with their finances, time and talents and also our dedicated staff, Membership Director David Zumaya, Event Coordinator Kristi Hawthorne, VP of Business Development Pam Rumer, Administrative Assistant Laci O’Brien and HR-Finance Administrator Tracy Chin. You guys make it a pleasure to come to work each day.

C h a m b e r S u p p o r t s Conce p t o f Co m m u ni t y V ision P l an and A g r i t o u r is m f o r S o u t h Mo r r o w Hi l l s The Oceanside Chamber recently sent a letter of support to the Oceanside Planning Commission encouraging the opportunity for residents and business owners in the South Morro Hills area of Oceanside to put together a community vision plan centered on the concept of agritourism. According to Chamber CEO, Scott Ashton, “the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce recognizes that the 3500 acres of South Morro Hills agricultural land is a unique and valuable asset for Oceanside. The possibility of creating agritourism opportunities in this community is exciting and compelling and the Chamber wants to do whatever possible to give this vision a chance to develop.” Some of the possibilities discussed for the farmland have included bed & breakfasts and boutique hotels. ​ long those lines, the Chamber’s Board of Directors voted recently to support a window of time of 24 months for a A community vision plan to be developed for this area. During this period of time, the Chamber’s intention is to not support individual projects proposed for this area. Chamber staff and volunteer leadership will continue to remain engaged with the property owners and city leaders during this time period.

C h a m b e r O p p oses A B -199: Bill Threatens to Drastically Increase Housing Cost s The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has contacted legislators in the California State Assembly to oppose AB 199 and its potential negative impact on economic development and housing in the State of California. The Chamber believes that this legislation, which includes a mandate to pay prevailing wages for private residential projects on private property is not good for business and not good for our community. With California’s housings costs at already 2.5 times the national average, housing is already a critical workforce issue in our region. The Chamber and numerous business organizations throughout the state believe this legislation would only serve to exacerbate the problem. Higher housing costs push our work force further away from the businesses that employ them and also mean fewer resources for healthcare and other critical needs of our workers.

S ocia l Media S e m ina r s 2017 These seminars are geared toward helping small business owners and non-profits leverage the power of social media to take their business to the next level of online marketing. Oceanside Chamber members using social media for their business will present seminars of tactics and tried-and-true examples of social media marketing. Each Seminar is from 9:00 - 10:30 am Chamber Office  928 N. Coast Hwy Thursday, April 27: Instagram Thursday, May 25: YouTube Thursday, June 22: Pinterest

Paci fic C ance r Fi t ness at t h e s tat e - o f -t h e - a r t T r i - C i t y We l l ness C en t e r Recovery and Survivorship Programs for Cancer Patients to Live and Feel Better

A decade ago, Susan Webster was treated for – and recovered from - breast cancer, but felt that support after treatment was lacking. Today, she is an avid, passionate and driven sports medicine enthusiast dedicated to helping others. “I have been where you are … I wanted to find a way to make something positive from my experience with cancer, and make the journey less scary for others” Susan experienced two lumpectomies followed by chemotherapy and radiation treatment to ensure all of the cancer was eliminated. It was during this time that she recognized the benefits of exercise, beginning her journey to becoming a cancer fitness coach. Once cancer free, Susan worked on her excess weight (lost 60 pounds!). Her doctor had recommended losing weight to reduce her risk of developing cancer again and lymphedema, a swelling of the limbs that is common in former cancer patients. She sought cancer survivor support groups and encountered many people who had similar questions about fitness and wellness. She wanted to feel supported, guided and encouraged knowing this was not the end but the beginning of a new life. The need for support, accurate information and “community” for cancer patients wanting to care for their bodies during and after treatment was evident, and Susan was inspired to pursue a Cancer Exercise Trainer certification from the American College of Sports Medicine. With fresh know-how and a passion to teach cancer patients and survivors about how to take better care of themselves, Susan founded Pacific Cancer Fitness (PCF) which is located at the state-of-the-art Tri-City Wellness Center. In addition to the fitness classes, led mostly by Susan, PCF hosts guest speakers who cover topics related to cancer treatment and healthy lifestyle choices. Susan is inspiring, uplifting and genuinely dedicated. “Every day is a gift,” she says with sincerity. “You have to find those things to be grateful for.” “Pacific Cancer Fitness is here to offer you hope, support, and some fun along the way.”

member spotlight C a l l in g A l l S m a l l B u siness O w ne r s!!! WA N T T O D O BU S I N E S S W I TH TH E G O V E R N M E N T? by John Engstrom Business Opportunity Specialist, SBA San Diego District and Levi Kinnard, Economic Development Specialist, SBA San Diego District

Are you a small business owner? Are you interested in doing business with the federal government? If you can qualify as an economically disadvantaged or socially disadvantaged small business owner, you might have the opportunity to be approved for the SBA’s 8(a) Program! According to www.usaspending.gov the federal government awarded approximately $471.7 Billion in contracts. There is a federal mandate that at least 23% ($108.5 Billion) of all dollars awarded for federal contracts be awarded to small businesses. That is great news for small business owners! The Small Business Administration has Business Opportunity Specialists in each district office to help small business owners get certified to do business with the federal government. Sections 8(a) and 7(j) of the Small Business Act authorize a Minority Small Business and Capital Ownership Development program, which is designated as the 8(a) Business Development Program. This is a nine-year development program, which commences from the date of SBA’s approval letter certifying the firm’s admission into the program. Generally a firm meets the basic requirements for admission into the 8(a) program if it is a small business that is unconditionally owned by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged individuals who are of good character and citizens of and residing in the United States, and which demonstrates potential for success. One compliance requirement a small business must meet to qualify for certification are Size Standards. Size determinations are different for many industries classification. Check to determine if your business qualifies for the 8(a) program, please refer to 13 CFR 124.102.

from circumstances beyond their control. For more specific information regarding socially disadvantaged status, please refer to 13 CFR 124.103. Economically disadvantaged individuals are socially disadvantaged individuals whose ability to compete in the free enterprise system has been impaired due to diminished capital and credit opportunities as compared to others in the same or similar line of business who are not socially disadvantaged. For more specific information regarding economically disadvantaged status, please refer to 13 CFR 124.104. We have a brand new program at the SBA San Diego District Office called Winning Work. Registrations and completion of applications can often be confusing and time consuming. Winning Work has developed a series of programs to simplify the process, get the registrations and numbers you need to complete the certification application process. This program is designed to help small businesses qualify for admission into the 8(a) program and identify government contracting opportunities. Winning Work works closely with the local Procurement and Technical Center (PTAC) to help small businesses identify contracts, develop marketing materials for their firms and meet government buyers. All services are confidential and provided at no cost to the client. Additional information is available by contacting John Engstrom, BOS, at john.engstrom@sba.gov or Levi Kinnard, EDS, at timothy.kinnard@sba.gov. Both are located at the San Diego District Office of the Small Business Administration.

Socially disadvantaged individuals are those who have been subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias within American society because of their identities as members of groups and without regard to their individual qualities.
