"When I arrived in 1994, I quickly grew to love this seaside city. A city full of passionate business leaders who are not afraid to give back to their community. A city consisting of its own airport, seaport, health, gas and water departments. A city that our famous Mayor Beverly O’Neill referred as the three T’s: Trade; Technology; and Tourism. We are a first class visitor destination with top quality accommodations, award winning restaurants, unique shopping venues and must see attractions such as the Aquarium of the Pacific, world famous Queen Mary, and the largest road race in America, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. What is not to love about this wonderful city?"
              — Randy Gordon, President & CEO

Marilynn Singer

"What stands out most to me about Long Beach is its beautiful diversity. Whether it’s the people who reside in it, the array of culture we possess or the number of food options we have. Long Beach is a one of a kind community that I am blessed to be part of."
              —Marilynn Singer, Membership Coordinator

Ajmaa Heggie

"With great schools, outstanding parks and unmatched nature centers, Long Beach is the perfect place to raise a family. I love Long Beach because my family is never short on activities or ways to get involved within the community. From concerts in the park to attending a sporting event at California State University, everything you need is in Long Beach!" #GoBeach!
              —Ajmaa Heggie, Controller

Jeremy Harris

"The uniqueness that is Long Beach is found in our community-supported small businesses while still embracing a large corporate presence. A big city with a small town feel due to our diverse neighborhoods and business corridors – offering craft breweries, a robust local art scene, entertainment venues, and iconic views. I love Long Beach for all of these things and what’s yet to come!"
              — Jeremy Harris, Senior Vice President

Judy Nelson

"Long Beach is often overlooked by people visiting the Los Angeles area…overlooked until they decide to go to the beach, attend an event at the Convention Center or visit the Queen Mary. In the past few years Long Beach has completely transformed itself into a beautiful place to live, play, shop and work. It has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, welcoming people from all walks of life."
              — Judy Nelson, Vice President of Business Councils

"From festivals to farmer's markets, breweries to boutiques, museums and much more, Long Beach has activities for everyone to enjoy. It's a beautiful city with gorgeous views and a tight-knit community that's always looking to grow and develop. I'm proud to call Long Beach home!"
              — Amanda Donahue, Special Events Manager; Executive Assistant to the President/CEO

"Long Beach is truly an incredible place made up of many distinct individuals, as a result, the city offers something for everyone. Our community grows every day, not only stronger, but more diverse and exciting. For those just visiting, there is never a dull moment. For those who choose to live here, our people are warm and welcoming, with new opportunities available every day."
              — Christine Bos, Government Affairs Manager

"I have loved being a part of Long Beach's development over the past few years. We have a forward-thinking city that is ripe for new opportunities. The residents and business owners of the city are extremely diverse, unlike any other city I've ever seen. Also, you simply cannot beat this weather."
              — Tyler Habeck, Membership Manager
