On Monday, August 14th 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 Kimberly Rodgers co-owner of Jungle Promotions on her classification of Business Promotional Products.  

Kimberly has been in business since 2001. She and her ex-husband (who she swears is a great guy) run the business together. Their son also works at the family business and they are grateful for that. When she's not working Kimberly loves to cook. 

Jungle Promotions is located in Huntington Beach off Bolsa. At her warehouse she does embroidery and some silk screening as well as warehouse items for her customers to be assembled and shipped as needed. Jungle Promotions also has a website where you can place an order online but Kimberly recommends you call her instead. The value that she brings to the equation is her wealth of knowledge, creativity and ability to stay within branding guidelines. Call Kimberly with a need and she will find you a great solution that fits your industry within your budget. Literally that all she needs to produce something unique for your company. 

During the lead session many of the members gave testimonials on the terrific job she has done for them producing awards, pad folios, pens, shirts, bottle openers, reusable bags, uniforms, blankets and much more! 

If you have an event coming up, need new uniforms, appreciation awards or client appreciation gifts contact Kimberly today and she will email you a few sample products that fit your need.

  • Eric Speier’s 30 day abeyance is up. He has submitted an application to change his classification to Website Design (from App Developer). He wasn’t getting enough leads for mobile apps and feels he will get more if everyone is referring web design business his way. It’s the other 50% of his business and he’s been a great member. He is also our IEA ambassador and planning to attend the IEA conference in October to represent the EALB. Mike Givens will not be staying on as an associate. 
  • Motion to approve Eric Speier of 5 Elements Entertainment for the classification of Website Design
  • Motion: K. Gragson  2nd: M. Thompson Discussion. All in favor? Yes Any opposed? No
  • Tom Bennett has not attended a meeting since he was sent the strong reminder that he is in violation of the attendance requirement and did not respond to Kellie regarding changing his classification. Jim Choura and Machelle Thompson spoke to him over the phone. Recommendations on how to deal with this issue? 
  • Motion to terminate Tom Bennett’s membership. 
  • Motion: J. Choura 2nd: S. Williams Discussion. He is in violation of our bylaws. He has a long track record of bad attendance, is probably not in the correct classification anymore and has been unresponsive to the Executive Director in an effort to remedy any of this. All in favor? Yes. Any opposed? No.
  • Members will reach out to Performance Plus and invite to a lunch. 

1:40 PM K. GRAGSON  BUSINESS PROMOTION

  • When will the committee meet again. Not sure. Will ask Kimberly Rodgers to fill the vacancy left by Diane Grisham on the committee. Do you have a date for the event? October 2018.
  • Kellie is handling the Back to Execs lunch/mixer. The graphics are ready the date is set for September 11th at noon. A few members have been helpful in providing names of previous members to be invited. Menu ideas/recommendations: patriotic theme, tables of different sizes in a mixer format, wine and beer, finger food menu. 
  • Adding more details to the invite and Jay will put it in his paper. Thanks Jay! 
  • It’s a reunion hosted by the EALB but is also open to potential new members.
  • Kellie recommends having a Christmas dinner event early in December since the kickoff event wont be until October. Machelle Thompson offered to have it at the Long Beach Yatch Club. The Yacht Club is closed on Monday’s so it will likely be on a Tuesday evening the first week of Dec.

  • The speed networking meeting was a hit. Members would like to do it quarterly/semi annually but with a better menu.

  • Machelle would like to see 8 new members join by the end of the year. Kellie has been asked to create a thermometer poster for that.
