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.
On Monday, December 4th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly networking luncheon. This week each member gave a one minute elevator pitch about their business and what a good lead for them is during our extended lead session. This is especially helpful for new members so they can learn more about the other members in a hurry so they can start giving leads.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Holiday dinner at the Long Beach Yacht Club. Madam President, Machelle Thompson was our member host and also provided superb live music for the event. We took a moment to remember long-time members Jack Dilday and Dick Stolz with a special song and photos. Another big thank you to all our table wine sponsors. The wine was flowing and all were having a great time.
