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, December 14th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly meeting to hear from Mary Loos. 

Bixby Neighbors was started by Mary Loos in 2016 with Best Version Media as the publisher. Best Version Media started over ten years ago and now has over 25 local magazines in southern California alone. Together they have circulated over 3,800 magazines through out the Bixby Knolls community.

Mary graduated from Michigan State with a Bachelor’s in International Business. Before Mary created Bixby Neighbors, she worked for the Spanish Newspaper La Opinion as director of their website and later as Vice President of La Opinion’s new media. As a world traveler, web blogger, and journalist she decided to settle down in California with her husband, who is a marine biologist, and three kids to focus on her writing for her local community.  

Mary’s talk gave insight into how Bixby Neighbors benefits the community and enable their readers to relate to the people in the magazine.
