Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1888, and is Southern California's largest not-for-profit business federation, representing over 1,600 businesses. The Chamber's early focus promoted the region's abundance of opportunities in agriculture and international trade. After World War II, the organization converted from a country-sponsored to a private business organization funded solely by its members. Its advocacy efforts started to include issues that also affected the four other surrounding counties. In 1967, the Chamber changed its name to the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce takes up key issues that affect the business community in Los Angeles. These issues include Affordable Health Care, Affordable Housing, Disaster Preparedness, Economic Development, Education & Workforce Development, Homeland Security, Improving L.A.'s Business Climate, Industrial Land Use, LAX Modernization, and Reducing Traffic Congestion.
View 2: Flags and national insignia from various nations decorate Broadway at 11th Street, in front of the L.A. Chamber of Commerce Building, which is located at 1151 S. Broadway. Among the insignia, directly in front of the Chamber building, hangs the swastika of the National Socialist Party of Germany. Adolf Hitler had recently become the German Chancellor.
