Message from the president

 

Hello Fellow Chamber Members,

It is truly an honor for me to take on the Presidency of the Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce. An honor that I accept with a deep sense of responsibility.

I have been a business owner in this community for over three decades now. My two daughters were born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga and attended elementary, middle, and high school here. Deer Canyon, Vineyard and Los Osos. Go Grizzlies 😉

I love and care for this community and I want to express my commitment to tirelessly work side by side with the Board of Directors, our Executive Director and staff, our city representatives and all of you, our members, assisting and supporting our business community.

It was not that long ago that I thought that the road map for this upcoming year was pretty much set. From where and when our major chamber events were taking place, to the menu we were going to enjoy during Installation Dinner. Today, all of that is irrelevant. None of that is happening. At least not in the near future.

During these challenging times, we are called to reinvent ourselves. We are called to look for the opportunities in the midst of these unprecedented times and find new ways to keep our businesses open and productive. We must adapt quickly to our new normal and continue moving forward with Purpose, Participation and Perseverance. The components of my new roadmap.

 

Purpose: Our Mission is our Purpose. “To promote a business-friendly environment to enhance the quality of life and the economy of Rancho Cucamonga” This is the reason why The Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce exists, and our decisions must align with it.

Participation: We must do this Together! Participation is crucial. A relationship cannot exist if it is one sided. We must stay connected, actively get involved, and support one another.

We need and invite you all to actively participate. For us as a Chamber to learn the specific needs of your businesses and to be able to allocate and bring the resources you need, you must stay connected and give us feedback.

Perseverance: In my opinion, a trait that small business owners learn to master. It is the ability to choose over and over to continue pursuing your dream despite any difficulties. We must persevere. We will be trying new things and sometimes they will not produce the desired results. We must keep moving forward paving the way to the future of our beloved Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce.
Remain Hopeful and Strong relying on the Certainty of knowing that we are a Determined and Hard-Working Business Community.

Stay Connected RCCC. I would love to hear back from you.

Sincerely,

Liliana Andriani – Angel Jewelers
Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce
President – Chairwoman
