The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.
The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.
It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.
This is a family owned and operated flower shop which has been in operation for over 30 years. Allen’s supplies every flower need from a single rose to a full wedding or other social event. We are open every day of the year and guarantee same day delivery anywhere we service.
As opposed to many florists, we have a large supply of fresh flowers which customers are welcome to mix and match while our designers stand by ready to create arrangements if that is preferred.
Harry Goldman, the owner and hands-on operator of Allens Flower Market, has been in the flower business in one way or another for approximately 50 years. He also has a business background with a degree in business from Cal State Long Beach. You will find him every day and most of the day at the flower shop, still one of the best salesmen there.
He is always searching for new and interesting ways to expand and better the business, being one of the early florists to be involved in use of the internet, Yelp and web services.
On Monday, September 18th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly networking luncheon at The Grand Event Center. This week's classification talk was given by Harry Goldman, owner of Allen's Flower Market on his classification of Florist.
