The Chamber celebrated as the ribbon 🎀 was cut for new member, Sydnee’s Pet Grooming.
It's always appreciated when Chamber members, including Ambassadors, and surrounding businesses come out to show their support too. Various governmental official representatives presented welcome certificates to Sydnee’s ownership.
We give special thanks to Alice Dong, family to the ownership team, for capturing two Directors caricatures. #wearethefunchamber #mvchamber #ribboncuttings #missionviejo #buylocal #shoplocal

Today, a small group of Ambassadors and Directors paid visits to local businesses discussing the many benefits of joining the Chamber of Commerce.
The Group consisted of: Donna Lang Stoffel (Director/Ambassador, of Heightened Health), John Rodriguez (Director/Ambassador, of iFinance Mortgage), Cody Abril (Ambassador/Communications, of New Generation Dentistry), and Ashley Brunier (Ambassador, of Waste Management).
The focus was on business owners with little time to participate in networking events and therefore may hesitate to join the Chamber. We demonstrated (with Cody and Ashley, younger representatives of their respective businesses) that business owners might be able to identify another trusted employee to attend and represent their business interests at Chamber-sponsored events and help to build more solid business relationships that could lead to increased referrals and closed business.
Many businesses showed positive interest in becoming Chamber members, some immediately and others in the very near future. The "group" even stopped by to visit fellow Chamber member, Julie Schmidt, of Team Logic IT. So great seeing you, Julie!
We thank Donna, John, Cody, and Ashley for taking a couple hours of their busy day to participate in this important campaign. #mvchamber #missionviejochamber #missionviejo #wearethefunchamber #communityoutreach #millennialcampaign
Many visitors come to our Chamber Daybreaker's Networking Breakfast on Tuesday's. After visiting twice, our guests generally decide whether or not the Chamber is a good fit for them and their business.
Director and Ambassador Chair, John Rodriguez (iFinance Mortgage) scheduled a one-to-one appointment with guest, Bethany Pryor (Bethany Pryor Photography) to see how she enjoyed her Daybreaker's experience. Bethany truly enjoyed meeting so many professionally-minded business owners who enjoy building long-lasting relationships and referring business to each other.
Bethany plans on joining the Chamber now! Please enjoy this brief video interview giving us a little more information on Bethany's photography services. #mvchamber #missionviejochamber #missionviejo #powerofvideomarketing #onetoonesarevital

Mission Viejo Chamber Member South County Outreach Honored By Senator Patricia Bates as "Non-Profit of the Year". Congrats!
SACRAMENTO – Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) has honored Orange County’s South County Outreach as the 2019 Nonprofit of the Year for the 36th Senate District. This recognition is part of a larger celebration of CalNonprofits’ “California Nonprofits Day” at the State Capitol’s South Lawn that took place yesterday.
“South County Outreach is a tremendous force for good in Orange County and I am proud to honor its work for positively changing thousands of lives,” said Senator Bates. “Whether feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, or teaching computer skills, the people of South County Outreach are making a real difference in our community.”
South County Outreach (originally Saddleback Community Outreach) is a tax-exempt 501(c) (3) non-profit and non-sectarian organization dedicated to ending hunger and homelessness in Orange County. Its Transitional Housing Program puts a roof over the heads of 17 households every year and its Food Pantry distributes over 800,000 pounds of food and keeps nearly 2,500 children fed annually. #chambermemberspotlight #mvchamber
