chamber 2016 innovation award competition
To prove themselves a resource for this "new" worker, the Chamber introduced LAX Coworking, a workspace with supplemental educational resources and program for professionals on a tight budget.
Within today's changing business climate, the ways of the traditional brick-and-mortar business are evolving. The new professional is mobile, often working a schedule outside of 9 to 5. As the LAX Coastal Chamber, we were excited to reinvent ourselves in order to better help this new type of worker, all while still offering the same great Chamber of Commerce service.

As a special perk, full-time LAX Coworkers also receive an honorary LAX Coastal Chamber membership where they benefit from more than 60 years of business experience and connect with over 500 Chamber members.
Chamber members are also invited to use the coworking space--from hosting board meetings to using a desk for the day, any and all are invited.
The Chamber knows that when an organization focuses on its members' needs, it receives rewards tenfold. When an LAX Coworker establishes a new business through the support of their local Chamber, it builds a loyalty that will last.
As one proud LAX Coworker stated, "It's nice to know you're not alone when you're launching!"
Because of the program, the LAX Coastal Chamber is seen as a valuable resource to professionals and millennials who would not have otherwise known they existed; giving the Chamber the chance to prove that they're not "your grandfather's Chamber."
