Eastvale Chamber: Hello Eastvale

Linda Ceron

Linda Ceron

Hello Eastvale:

It’s always a little bittersweet when someone who has put time into a company decides to pass the torch and move on. There are usually big shoes to fill and lots to learn for the one accepting that torch.

So how does one grab the torch and run with it?

I am Linda Ceron, the newly named Director of Corporate Sponsorship for the Eastvale’s Chamber of Commerce.  I am up for the challenge and come with a wealth of knowledge, experience and three decades of Sales and Marketing background working for a Fortune 500 company. I look forward to continuing on in the past Director’s footsteps, providing the high level of programs and services that our business community has come to expect. I am excited to work with each and every Chamber member, Town official and potential new member business.

The Chamber’s mission, in short, has always been “to make Eastvale a better place to live, work and do business.” We know that what is good for business is good for the community. If businesses prosper, then people work and communities stay strong. I am proud to take the torch and run with it.

Here are some key things the Chamber will do for you as a member.

  • We will keep you informed. The “information explosion” has hit businesses hard. There is so much new information out there that it’s impossible to keep up; healthcare, taxes, new federal and state regulations; business trends. Of course not all of this information is vital to your business, but a great deal of it is. That’s where the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce comes in. We function as a clearing house for information that’s important to local business. Through newsletters, seminars, monthly mailings, weekly e-minders, and networking events, we get the word out to our members in an efficient, timely manner.
  • We give you a voice. A single voice crying in the wilderness might have been effective in Biblical times, but in today’s ever changing business landscape there’s more truth to the old adage about “strength in numbers.” As an Eastvale Chamber of Commerce member, your concerns are our concerns, and we’ll use every bit of political muscle we have to make sure our members concerns are addressed in the proper forum.
  • Many times, working “behind the scenes” lets the Chamber achieve some very impressive results that significantly benefit one or all of our 170 member businesses. We haven’t achieved “wizard” status yet, but we intend to keep trying!
  • The Chamber improves our community. If your business is a work of art, then your community is the frame that shows it off. The Eastvale Chamber of Commerce knows that good citizenship is good business, so we are the synergistic focal point for Eastvale business interaction with the community. We maintain liaison with Town government, service agencies, and other area non-profits to make sure that Eastvale business resources are effectively utilized to benefit every segment of the Town’s population.

If you’d like to learn more about the great work we are doing here at the Chamber and in your community – or just say “hello,” please feel free to give me a call.  I look forward to helping grow your business.

Eastvale Chamber: Hello Eastvale

Hello Eastvale:

 It is an honor to serve as Vice President of the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce. After residing in several locations throughout the United States, no city has been as infinitely unique as Eastvale. The dynamics and autonomy of Eastvale has brought solace to many families’ lives, including mine. This leads to why I chose to participate in community development and why the core principles of the Chamber of Commerce have been fervently pursued by the current Board of Directors: Contribute to the economic success and business development for the community of Eastvale.

 The business community’s success is essential for the City to thrive and continue to make Eastvale an attractive area to live. Thriving businesses inside the community will bolster City revenues (increased sales tax growth), contain goods and services demanded within the community, provide local residents with jobs, and increase local home values – subsequently increasing Eastvale residents’ net worth and quality of life. All of the concepts indicated are what Eastvale residents strive for and what the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce will unequivocally pursue.

 The Chamber’s affable relationship with City government has assisted in encouraging the City to increase business development inside the community. The Chamber speaks on behalf of the business community as a unified voice.  It also disseminates state legislation and protects local businesses from excessive regulation, which prevents economic growth.

 There is no paucity of home development within the City of Eastvale; furthermore homeownership is the number one catalyst to economic prosperity, but owning a home can also provide the necessary leverage capital to start that business many Eastvale residents have dreamed of.

I have personally visited several home office and brick-and-mortar businesses and listened to the success stories. The Chamber wants to assist these same business owners and provide the necessary tools for success.

One tool the Chamber provides is business education, and workshops will be extended to Chamber members throughout the year in the hopes of providing pragmatic business solutions.

 The Chamber has a dedicated and loyal leadership that is working diligently to lead this community to economic success and support community businesses, all the while continuing to align with City objectives for the benefit of this amazing city. All membership dues and proceeds are reinvested into the community.   

 I want to close with a quote from former President Ronald Reagan, who said, “America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.”  Let’s make Eastvale that shining city upon a hill and continue to work toward making it the best community in California.
