Welcome to the Covina Chamber of Commerce 2008-2009 Business Directory! The purpose of this directory is to provide a resource for the community while promoting Chamber members and the local economy. The businesses included in this directory are strong community supporters and they believe being active in the Chamber is one of many ways to market their business. So, please look through the advertisements carefully and make it a point to utilize some of the services offered.
The Business Directory is only one marketing option the Chamber provides to our members. We also create several opportunities for businesses to meet new contacts, develop business relationships and have access to civic leaders. These are important elements when trying to create and maintain a successful business, and one of the goals of the Covina Chamber is to make sure these connections continue to happen.
Please use this Business Directory as a resource! If you need a financial advisor, look here first. If you need a dry cleaner, look here first. If you need a plumber, look here first. You get the idea….Support the businesses that support the community!
The Board of Directors, Ambassadors and Chamber staff look forward to another successful year!
Good things happen when Chamber members get to know each other and do business together.
The first year that I joined the Covina Chamber of Commerce, I did not attend any of the functions. Consequently, I did not get any business from the Chamber nor meet any members. The second year, I jumped in and attended everything. I became an Ambassador and then a Board Member. Members got to know me personally, as well as how I might help them professionally.
For those of you who do not know what an Ambassador does, let me explain. We participate at ribbon cuttings, and get to know the new businesses in town. We attend the breakfast meetings and mixers in the evening. By doing this, I have met many wonderful people, done business with them and for them, and have accumulated many resources to whom I can refer others. The Covina Chamber of Commerce is a very friendly place and we like doing business with each other.
As a member you will receive a monthly newsletter that will inform you of what is happening in our business community. You can display your business brochures in the Chamber office, where many newcomers stop before they open or move their business to Covina.
We publish a map every other year that will help you find other businesses in town, as well as let others know where you are located.
We salute you, our members and thank you for your continued support of your Chamber of Commerce.
