LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce announced the addition of the Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce (LAJCC) to its family of affiliate organizations. With this announcement, the Junior Chamber, which was founded in 1924 as an affiliate of the L.A. Area Chamber, will once again operate out of the Chamber’s headquarters, a partnership that will allow both organizations to have a more effective and significant impact on business and community leaders of tomorrow.

“We are delighted about this renewed partnership with the Junior Chamber,” said Chamber President & CEO Gary Toebben. “It’s a perfect fit, because like us, the Junior Chamber has a longstanding history of improving quality of life through its contributions to the economic and social arenas throughout the region.”

Known for their tradition of high-impact programs, the LAJCC strives to empower young professionals through professional enrichment, leadership development and community service.

“The Junior Chamber has a long, rich history of preparing future leaders,” said Kwiri Yang, LAJCC Board President. “We believe this new partnership will give the Junior Chamber the focus it needs to meet the needs of today’s young professionals in exciting new ways.”

“As a part of this transition, we are taking the opportunity to gather input from young professionals and leaders across the Los Angeles region, to effectively build on LAJCC’s legacy of relevance and impact,” said Chamber Vice President of Leadership Development Nancy Olson, who will lead the Junior Chamber.  Programming is currently on hiatus, and will re-launch in April 2017.
