The Online Publication of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce - Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Working for YOU …

It may be August, but the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce had a full agenda last week, working for you. Here is a sample of our activities:

Chamber Plans an Exclusive Luncheon Featuring State Senate President ProTem Kevin de León, August 10th

The Chamber hosted a State of the State Address for the 3rd year in a row by State Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León at Paramount Pictures. The sold-out event gave our members a chance to meet with one of the most important public figures in the State of California. Watch the speech

Actor Jeffrey Tambor received the 2,617th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actor, best known for his work on Arrested Development and Transparent, was joined by other Transparent cast members, including Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Katherine Hahn. Watch the ceremony

The Chamber’s Healthcare Committee provided an opportunity for members to meet with Senator Ed Hernandez, the chair of the Senate Health Committee, at a meeting hosted at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. With healthcare being such an important current issue, this was a chance to learn what we can expect in healthcare in California in the near future.

The first Hollywood Chamber Dodgers Night was held on Friday, giving members a chance to network, eat Dodger dogs and get better acquainted. Although the Dodger lost a rare game, attendees had a great time.  Look for this to possibly become a new annual event.

The Chamber’s Decorations task force and the Hollywood Entertainment District BID met with a decorator to discuss bringing back holiday decorations to Hollywood Blvd.
