The Mission Viejo Chamber is pulling out all the stops to “Make Business Happen” in 2020.
Growing your business, networking, and engaging with a community of like minded individuals is what makes the Mission Viejo chamber unique.
With exponential growth in membership and record visits to networking events last year the chamber has put together a plethora of events for you to look forward to. The Mission Viejo Chamber is super excited to share an abundance of events that can grow your business and allow you to give back to the community.
From the Oso Fit 5k to the Inaugural Tri City Chamber Mixer 2019 was a year to remember for the Chamber of Commerce. We nearly doubled in size.
We recognized Jan for Coastal Naturopathic Wellness Business and her more holistic approach to good health.
This month’s topics: Energy-saving tips for the office, SDG&E’s weather station network, heat pump water heaters, green real estate training
AAUW Interbranch Council Orange County, and the Mission Viejo Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsoring a panel on Human Trafficking. The City of Mission Viejo is giving its strong support for this free community program.
At the Mission Viejo Chamber, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to benefit the members. We recently decided that one piece that was missing for the growth of our chamber and a benefit to members was good solid education opportunities on a regular basis that would assist our members with the growth and development of their businesses. We have formed an education committee.
This committee is responsible for the planning, scheduling, facilitation, and execution
of Chamber educational classes, for the benefit of the general membership and surrounding community.
Among other things the education committee will hold a monthly Lunch n’ Learn the first Wednesday of each month. The first class will be held on February 5th at Oggis Pizza on Alicia. Oggi’s is stepping up to be our premier sponsor for the first quarter. These will be a free event and lunch will be served at $10 per/person, if you desire. These seats will be limited to first 15 RSVP’s for each Lunch.
For details of the classes and to sign up go to www.missionviejochamber.com and make sure you download the MVCC App.

NEW MAYOR BRIAN GOODELL
Mayor Brian Goodell is a long-time resident of Mission Viejo. He is a graduate of Linda Vista Elementary, La Paz Intermediate, Mission Viejo High School and UCLA.
Brian was one of the original members of the Mission Viejo Nadadores swimming and diving team, and was the first person from Mission Viejo to win an Olympic Gold Medal, winning both the 1500-meter and 400-meter freestyle swimming events in world-record time at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal.
Based on the writing seen on the internet and in printed brochures, many people are confused about the use of single vs. double quotation marks. It’s actually quite simple. Double quotation marks are the standard form used for almost all occasions. Single quotations marks are generally only used to enclose a quotation within a quotation.
