Some messages from our group...

What makes the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce a good chamber to be part of?

I am not exaggerating:  My experience in the last two years with our Chamber has been life-changing.  I've never been a "joiner" and never felt comfortable in groups. I met Jill Lederer, other wonderful Chamber staff and members when Abby Franke and I introduced them in 2012 to the beginnings of Abby's Millstone Baking Co. in Agoura Hills.  Since that time the support in the Conejo community for the bakery has been huge and continues growing daily by word of mouth (literally and figuratively).  My enormously positive business and personal experiences with Chamber members through the bakery led me to buy a second membership for my husband's and my construction forensics expert witness business, XL Services. So now I'm a two-time joiner who speaks in public, has friendships with many great business owners in the Conejo Valley and enjoys living in our area more than ever, in deep and lasting quality-of-life ways. 

I'm pleased to see that our Chamber continues to grow and grow.  I urge every new and existing business in the Conejo Valley and beyond to join us!

— Debbie Vardi - XL Services
