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.

·         Our Business Promotion committee was put on hold until we were able to go back to in person meetings. Realizing that it might not happen for a while, they decided to retool how networking should be done. With the permanent installation of hybrid meetings, we have started a new way of networking: Networking Past the Room to Zoom. This will allow new and old members to be to connect during our meetings either in person or through zoom and gives an opportunity to give one person companies the chance to join a networking association.

   In 2020, we were hit with the COVID-19 virus that shutdown the Long Beach area as well as much of the country. The way we network through close and personal interaction was stopped and we lost members due to financial hardship caused by the pandemic. The board decided to adapt and retool how we network by creating hybrid meetings. They also decided to create new levels of membership like the affiliate and non-profit memberships to bring in new members for the 2021 year.

   Thank you

   Our Joint Board Meeting is on Feb 8th.

   The Annual Presidents Installation will be on Monday, March 1st for a simple but ungraded lunch.
