ABOUT THE CHAMBER The Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce has been serving the business and residential communities of Simi Valley since its establishment in 1952. Membership in the Chamber continued to grow throughout the 1970s. It was during this time that the Chamber launched the concept of Shop Simi Valley to encourage residents to spend their money at local businesses, added many networking opportunities for its members, and began to sponsor the Miss Simi Valley pageant. By the 1980s Simi Valley was experiencing rapid growth of its commercial and industrial segments. To better position itself to receive these emerging industries, the Chamber began Professional, Automotive and Government Divisions. In the 1990’s, the more business that came to Simi Valley the larger the Chamber membership grew. Due to its innovative programming, such as the Transportation Management Association and a Telecommute Center, its growing membership and its adherence to strict financial policies and procedures, creative programming and communications, the Chamber applied for and was granted accreditation from the U. S. Chamber of Commerce on June 13, 1990.

It has kept up its accreditation over the years, attaining a 5-Star accreditation in 2010, the highest awarded by the U.S. Chambers of Commerce. (See “Simi Valley Chamber Holds 5-Star Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce” article in this directory on page 13). The Chamber has since added the Simi Valley Chamber Tourism Alliance, which works with the local hotels and attractions to increase lodging occupancy and boost business in Simi Valley’s leisure and hospitality sector. The Simi Valley Chamber Tourism Alliance is focused on programs and services that will deliver incremental new room night sales to its members, including marketing of members, tourist promotion activities, and marketing of special events and programs.

The Chamber has been instrumental in making Simi Valley a family-oriented, business-friendly and visitor-welcoming community. There is no doubt that it has left an imprint on the community and will continue to do so for years to come.

BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP If you are a business professional or business owner in Simi Valley, you have likely been invited to join the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce. It sounds like a great idea that really makes you wonder, what can the Chamber do to help your business grow? The answer is simple. The Chamber of Commerce advocates on your behalf to create a business-friendly climate and promote economic development in Simi Valley. To do this, it spends an enormous amount of time and energy working with local, state and federal officials to deflect bills that may adversely affect business growth, taxes, or the ability to conduct business. Additionally, the chamber offers companies and their employees a multitude of services from educational forums to building relationships with residents, legislators, and other business owners, to expanding their streams of revenue.

The Chamber is Your Personal Cheerleading Section Many networking organizations leave the onus of success squarely on the shoulders of their members. Chambers see it as more of a mutually beneficial relationship and work together with business professionals to promote their businesses as well as secure their involvement in efforts to help the community. Since its establishment in 1952, the Simi Valley Chamber’s mission has been to “to foster and promote a strong business community.” Although the specific challenges may change over the decades, the role as a gatekeeper for the greater community remains the same: to ensure that Simi Valley grows through economic development driven primarily by a thriving business community.

CalChamber Legislative Summit President’s Circle Award

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Accreditation Program The U.S. Chamber’s accreditation program, the only one of its kind in the country, was established to provide chambers a way to track their growth and development, and assess their objectives and resources, program of work, procedures, and achievements. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce distinctions begin with “Accredited” and then graduate to 3-Star, 4-Star and 5-Star. Chambers must apply to be considered for these distinctions.

PRESIDENT’S CIRCLE AWARD Pictured Left to Right: Allan Zaremberg, President and CEO of California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber), Rana Ghadban, President/CEO Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce, Susan Corrales-Diaz, 2017 Board Chair of California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber)

The Chamber sends a delegation to Sacramento each year to lobby for business and meet with our State representatives. In May 2017 representatives from the Chamber attended the CalChamber Legislative Summit where they heard about current issues affecting business and were awarded the President’s Circle Award. This award recognizes chambers for excellence in business advocacy and helping their members comply with California employment law. The Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce has received this honor each year since 2009.

Simi Valley Chamber Holds 5-Star Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce If you thought the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce was outstanding, you’re in good company. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce agrees, so much so that they gave the Chamber a 5-Star Accreditation rating in 2010 and 2015. The Chamber had received its original 20-year general accreditation in 1990.

Each application is sent to a review board, comprised of U.S. Chamber of Commerce Board Members, who review a chamber’s planning and performance, looking specifically at its programming, organization procedures and communications. The extensive review process can take between six and nine months to complete.

Benefits of Accreditation What are the benefits of being part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s accreditation program? They include: • • • • • • • •

Enhanced leadership development A measuring stick with which to evaluate the quality of the chamber Better direction for the chamber board and staff A realistic program of work Upgrades in chamber bylaws, policies and procedures Pride in the organization Membership development Prestige, respect and recognition to the chamber

Over the years, many individuals, groups and businesses have contributed to the growth of the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce. However, there is no doubt that the accreditations it has received from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have helped to lift its level of prestige among community members and increase the confidence level of the business owners within its boundaries, resulting in an enhanced economy and overall good health report for the Simi Valley.

The 5-Star Accreditation is the highest of several recognitions that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce awards to chambers nationwide. The Simi Valley Chamber is one of only 106 chambers in the United States to have a 5-Star accreditation. That’s quite a feat when you realize that of the approximately 7000 Chambers in the U.S. only 199 carry any of the accreditations. More than 850 chambers have participated in the program since its creation in 1964. THE GUIDE  |  www.simivalleychamber.org 13

REAGAN PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY MUSEUM Galleries Bring History to Life Perched atop a hill with sweeping views of the southland, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is one of California’s most beautiful and unique destinations. Open since 1991, but wholly renovated in 2011, the galleries were designed to bring history to life. Where else in California can visitors walk onboard an actual Air Force One aircraft that flew seven U.S. presidents, touch an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall, or lay a hand on a real steel beam recovered from the World Trade Center after 9-11? Visitors may also enjoy the Library’s outdoor grounds, where you can stroll through a replica of the White House Rose Garden or the White House West Lawn, or pay your respects at President and Mrs. Reagan’s Memorial Site. The Reagan Library is also home to two restaurants, Reagan’s Country Café and The Ronald Reagan Pub, or guests may bring a picnic lunch and sit outside. The Reagan Library also hosts special days commemorating Veterans Day, Presidents Day and the Fourth of July.

In addition, the Reagan Library features many world-class special exhibits. In 2018, the Reagan Library is home to the Genghis Khan exhibit from February 16 – August 19, 2018. As the only stop in Southern California for this international tour, the exhibit features daily live cultural performances, hundreds of artifacts from Genghis’s 13th century Empire, and a virtual trade route along the Silk Road. Exhibit dates may change and additional admission rates may apply. Go to the Library’s website: (reaganlibrary.com) or call (800-410-8354) to see what exhibits will be open during your visit.Open seven days a week, the Reagan Library is only closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life. – Ronald Reagan

UCLA Health Better health begins with U! What can you do to ensure good health as you age? More than you might realize! Although genetics play a role in your long-term health, your diet and other lifestyle choices are equally important. At UCLA Health, we say, “it begins with U.” That is certainly true for your health. You control many key factors that can lead to good health. Here are a few for your consideration. Primary Care Good health begins with finding a trusted primary-care physician who will be your partner in good health. She or he will be the coach who guides you to make informed, healthy decisions in your life built on evidence-based knowledge, not the latest fads or internet myths. Regular visits with a PCP are essential for good health. Screenings / Vaccines Your PCP will advise you on which screenings and vaccines you need based on your age, sex, family history and other factors. At our UCLA Health-Simi Valley practice, for example, we are reminding all of our patients via our user-friendly web portal to be sure to get flu shots before flu season arrives. Your PCP also will guide you when to get vaccines for tetanus, pneumonia and shingles, when to have a mammogram or prostate exam and be screened for colon cancer, heart disease and other health issues.

Well-Balanced Diet. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, such as the Mediterranean diet, helps lower bad cholesterol -- and your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Exercise Diet and exercise go hand-in-hand in maintaining good health. Getting regular exercise, such as walking for as little as 20 minutes at a time, five days a week, helps reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes. Weight Management Losing weight is difficult, but definitely worth it for health reasons. Losing even small amounts of weight, especially around your mid-section, can produce big results in reducing your risk of diabetes, health disease and other ailments. Adequate Sleep Numerous studies have shown that a lack of sleep can lead to many health issues. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. If you’re having trouble sleeping, talk to your PCP. There may be simple fixes to help you get better ZZZs. Socialize Getting together with family and friends can be good medicine. Join Facebook to reconnect with former school friends or colleagues. Volunteer or join a club to meet and become friends with others. It can improve your health! Dr. Roya Mojarrad is a board-certified family medicine physician with the UCLA Health practice in Simi Valley. For more information, call (805) 583-7640 or visit uclahealth.org/Simi-Valley.

EDUCATION Simi Valley Unified School District From new residents seeking the best school district, to businesses relocating headquarters based on an area’s academic offerings, one of the easiest benchmarks to determining the quality of a community is found in its schools. If you’re new to a community, or your child is transitioning into a new grade level, how do you go about choosing the best school for your family? At Simi Valley Schools, almost all of our 28 campuses are Schools of Choice. That means that as long as there are empty seats remaining after all of the neighborhood students have enrolled in a school, those living outside of the neighborhood school’s boundaries can apply to attend that school. About 46 percent of our students attend a school that is not their neighborhood school, showing that Schools of Choice is a popular option for many of our families. With so many educational choices, families can quickly become overwhelmed. Thankfully there are some things you can do to narrow down your search and find the best school for your children. First, know that if you're already agonizing over this decision, your child will already have a great start with school, because you're an involved parent. This is probably the MOST important factor in your child's success!

42 THE GUIDE  |  www.simivalleychamber.org

You know your child best, so seek out special programs that support your child’s needs or talents. For instance, if you know you might face learning challenges, consider one of our four Title 1 schools. Title 1 schools receive extra funding for academic intervention, allowing struggling students to be pulled into small groups or one-on-one sessions with special teachers to work on challenging subjects. If your child has a servant’s heart, consider a program like Madera Elementary School’s Civic Leadership Academy. Have a major performer on your hands? Crestview Elementary’s CATS Academy can help shape him or her into a fine thespian. Look beyond test scores. Current performance indicators, such as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test, provide a school-wide average, which includes all student populations. For schools that have a large English-learning population, Special Education students, or low socio-economic status students, you tend to have scores that are lower because these student groups are challenged with additional factors. Test scores are not a good reflection of how teachers teach or how students learn.


Avoid online ratings sites at all costs! Online reviews of schools are problematic for assessing the school’s performance. This is because most people will only post reviews when they are frustrated with a school, teacher or student. There is no way to respond to these concerns on these sites, and too often these are very unique scenarios that may have been taken care of shortly after the post. (How many of us ever go back and revise an online review?) Also, some of these school rating sites use overall metrics to judge a school, even if the metric doesn't not apply to school. One example is Santa Susana High School. One of our highest performing schools for many years, and it always lands on the Best High Schools lists, but some school review sites have downgraded SSHS because it doesn't have an athletics program. Check out the “2018-2019 Guide to Simi Valley Schools,” found on our website’s homepage, SimiValleyUSD.org. This downloadable PDF guide has listings for every school in our district with a short blurb about what makes each school special, and contact information. It’s updated every year and it’s free. Visit as many schools as possible. Each school has its own culture and flavor. Some questions to ask:

• Do you like the facilities? • Are the teachers friendly? • Are the classrooms interesting and stimulating? • Is the PTA welcoming? • What special programs are offered at the school? • Do you need before-school care? • Do you need to be able to walk to school?

Every January and February, during Schools of Choice season, all of our schools host information events and tours for interested parents. Check our website, SimiValleyUSD.org, on the Master Calendar for dates and times. Even if you can’t make it to one of the posted events, every school will welcome you for a private tour. Just call the school to make the arrangements. It's great to talk to other parents to get a feel for what's worked and what hasn't. Just always remember to filter their information through the lens of their child and their experience. At Simi Valley Schools, our staff works hard to make every campus an engaging center for exceptional learning for all students. We are here to serve our community, because we know that at Simi Valley Schools, our students go from here to anywhere!

The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things. – Jean Piaget

SIMI VALLEY STREET FAIR Street Fair, a 40 year tradition There are some elements of a community that become part of its overall landscape and feel. The Simi Valley Street Fair is one of those events. It attracts tens of thousands of residents each spring to its vendor booths, games, food and other attractions. The family fair, which is currently produced by the Simi Valley Chamber, began as a consumer education fair in 1977. At the time it wasn’t a chamber event, but the result of a grant received by the Simi Campus of Moorpark College to educate the public about their rights as consumers. Over the years, despite several name and location changes, and unpredictable weather, the fair has remained a popular community event. In 1977, when Moorpark College’s Simi Campus received a California State consumer education grant, the question was how to use it. It fell upon then Dean Floyd Martin and Leeann Patterson, a Moorpark College home economics teacher, selected as co-directors of the project, to answer that question. One of the first things they did was contact other organizations in the valley, including the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce, Simi Valley Adult Education, the City of Simi Valley, and the Simi Valley Recreation and Park District to both get their input and secure their cooperation. Everyone agreed that a consumer fair would be the best use of the grant resources.

44 THE GUIDE  |  www.simivalleychamber.org

The fair, based on a model developed by the Camarillo Chamber, would combine consumer education directed demonstrations and discussions, as well as vendor booths to give the community more familiarity with businesses in the neighborhood. Fifty-one vendors participated in Simi Valley’s first-ever consumer fair. Held on Saturday, May 21, 1977 on the grounds of the Larwin Community Center, it drew a crowd estimated at 1,000. According to Martin, the vendors ranged in size from small mom and pop shops to larger corporations such as Simi Valley Ford and Southern California Edison. The first year of the event produced such a positive response from the community that Martin, Patterson and the advisory committee decided to hold another consumer fair the second year, but this time it would be a two-day instead of a one-day event. Planning was underway when the Board of Trustees of the Ventura County Community College District decided that it didn’t want to be involved in a consumer fair and returned the remainder of the grant money to the state. Despite the financial constraints, everyone involved wanted to continue the event. That second year, it was completely self-funded through company sponsorships and vendor fees. Held at the Larwin Center, the two-day event featured a circus tent. Martin said, “We were just a year early to making this a self-funding event for the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce.” The Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce took the fair over in 1979, renaming it the Simi Valley Trade Fair. The fair, which continued to grow in vendors and attendee participation, remained at the Larwin Center for a few more years when it was moved to Tapo Canyon and LA Avenue.


Around 2000, it was decided that the Trade Fair would no longer be held due to a steady attendance decline. Following a hiatus of a year or two, the Chamber decided to take the old Trade Fair concept and use it to develop a Street Fair. The Chamber was able to secure the Farmers Insurance Building parking lot as the new venue site. “The community loved it, as did the vendors, who were only there for one day,” he noted. “Over the next few years, attendance grew.” Recognizing the fair’s potential to bring the community together, the City of Simi Valley approached the Chamber about moving the event to Tapo Street between Cochran and Eileen in 2004. In recent years, the Street Fair has been held on Cochran Street between Galena and Sequoia. “This is when it truly became a street fair," said Seymour. "It took on a more festive environment.” Despite its many relocations, the Street Fair remains a popular Spring event in Simi Valley. The 2017 fair attracted over 15,000 community members and more than 300 vendors, more than a five-fold increase from 1977. On May 12, 2018, the fair will move to its new location on Simi Town Center Way. “Last year, in addition to the roughly 300 vendors featured at Street Fair, we had over 60 more vendors on the waiting list,” says Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Rana Ghadban, “and with even more vendors excited and eager to participate this year, we sought out and found a perfect ‘New Home’ for the 2018 Annual Simi Valley Street Fair. Our partnership with The Simi Valley Town Center is a win-win for the community! Our new Street Fair location is so large and such a great fit that it will allow us to feature up to 100 additional vendors, and expand this fantastic event to further entertain and benefit our local Simi Valley community!” The Simi Valley Street Fair has evolved over the years into a not-to-be-missed family festival that promotes goodwill throughout the community.

Many schools are California Gold Ribbon winners and National Blue Ribbon winners, and have numerous other acknowledgements that best reflect the excellence and creativity found there. Our website, www.SimiValleyUSD.org, contains schools and program information, as do the websites for each school within our District. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is excited to answer questions and give tours of their schools for curious families. Just call the school directly. If you're researching opportunities for your family, take a closer look at Simi Valley Schools. If you're already with us, thank you for being an important part of our family.
