Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

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, May 13th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly luncheon to hear from guest speaker Alex Froloff. 

On Monday, we had a guest speaker, Alex Froloff. Alex is a director of retirement services at Principal Financial Group. Alex specializes in helping small businesses find individual retirement plans for their employees and owners.

Alex gave insight into how small businesses can put away money for their employees and themselves through 401k and profit sharing. When employers start setting up 401ks for their companies they are able to figure out how they can invest into the 401k for their employees and it could also be tax deductible. Instead of claiming what your company made, you can put some of it into a 401k for your employees. If you match your employee contributions it is tax free and will continue to grow tax free. Additionally, for your kids you can create a Roth IRA and you can have them as an employee or they can be self-employed. You can invest in your child’s Roth and it will be a tax deduction for you and the child’s earnings with from tax free. The withdrawals can be tax free as well.

Alex and Principal Financial Group work with Michael Shafer and Edward Jones. If you have any questions on how your company can invest in your employees retirement, as well as your own, don’t hesitate to contact Michael.
