Message from the President-Chair  
November 14, 2016 
Greetings Chamber Members,
All of us at the Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce, from the Board of Directors, Ambassadors and employees endeavor to bring our members great value with the quality events we present, the networking opportunities we provide, business forums and educational programs we offer and the business referrals we provide to help grow your business. Take the survey further down in this newsletter and let us know what is important to you and your business.
At our last BCN breakfast, our chamber staff presented information about "How to update your company profile". The discussion provided insight about how to maximize your business presence on the Chamber website so people visiting our website can locate your business easier. Members who attended were very excited and impressed with all the features and benefits our website offers. Be looking for more informational seminars in the near future.
This week, on Thursday night we will have our social mixer at Rossa's Cucina, Fine Italian Dining.  This is a wonderful location to network, have fun and make new friends. The food and drinks are delicious too. Hopefully we will see you there.
The Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce is proud to once again host the Rancho Cucamonga State of The City event to be held on February 23, 2017. We are seeking business sponsors for this wonderful community gathering. Sponsors will have VIP access to great food and beverages during the social networking part of the program. More information regarding the various sponsorship opportunities is available further down in this communication. Thank you.
Have a successful week,
Ernie Braunwalder
President & Chairman of the Board

Operation New Hope
 Operati on New Hope Learning Center is a trauma informed learning center that provides premier educational and vocational services for transitional age youth who have not succeeded in a traditional environment, resulting in a healthier individual and community. To achieve our  vision, New Hope Staff will model the values that are taught such as listening, fi nding solutions, practicing honesty, patience and acceptance. An important aspect of the ONH approach is that while it may focus on a particular behavio r- criminal behavior, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, aggressive behaviors, learning disabilities, or poor  self esteem-it is focused on the development of lifestyle management skills that address the entire range of human behavior - a holistic lifestyle approach.
