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.
"Where women get into trouble and men get out of it."
We have been in business since 1991 (25+ years) at the same location. We are very involved in many local charities, hospitals, schools, churches and many other local charitable groups. J&L is a very different kind of jewelry store, there is never any pressure to buy anything. We have lunch for our customers every Friday, we have great candies for our customers and toys for kids to play with while their parents shop. We carry all price ranges of jewelry from $10 on up to any amount you want to spend on that special purchase. We have a wish list on hand for hints to your special someone.
