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, April 8th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly luncheon to hear from Vince Bunting and the Long Beach K-9 Association. 

Vince Bunting has owned C.H. Topping brakes for over 35 years. C.H. Topping specializes in commercial, industrial, and personal brake systems. Vince, along with his son, can tackle any brake challenge and are trusted in the automotive industry, including many car museums.

 

Not only is Vince an avid car enthusiast and a member of many car clubs and automotive services, he is also part of the K-9 Officers Association. He has been active in the K-9 Officers Association for 22 years.

 

Vince’s talk provided insight into the background of the K-9 Officers Association. In 1979, the non-profit organization began supporting a K-9 unit for the Long Beach Police Department, though it has no official connection with the city of Long Beach. The Association, along with the handlers, purchase the dogs, mostly Belgium Malinois and Dutch Shepherds from overseas and provide funds for their food and medical care. Around the 1990’s German Shepards have been replaced with the other breeds due the dogs becoming too large and the possibility of medical issues. Additionally, the Association provides the handler with extensive training in local facilities while they interact with the dogs on a daily basis. Today officers Mike Parcells and Jason Wood, with his K-9 Aj, joined us. Officer Parcells has been on the job for 26 years and with the K9 division for 16 years. Officer Wood has been on the job 13 years and with the K9 division for 3 years. The duties the dogs are trained to provide include different services: search and rescue, drug sniffing, and bomb detecting. On average it costs the K-9 Association about $15,000 to $20,000 over a period of three to five years to purchase and provide for the dogs while they are in their care.

 

To assist in covering some of the costs the K-9 Association is hosting a car show on May 11th which will debut about 300 cars as well as provide a K-9 demonstration. Vince and the K-9 Officers Association have worked very hard to provide the Long Beach Police Department with a K-9 unit that is highly regarded as one of the best on the west coast. ..
