Melina's Message

The summer months are just wrapping up and with that the start of the Chamber year begins. Thank you to everyone who joined us this summer for one of our events. Most recently the Grand Re-Naming Ribbon Cutting Ceremony & Business Mixer for Anthesis formerly PVW held at the end of July.

Congratulations Anthesis and thank you for your continued contributions to the Montclair business community! I encourage everyone to stop by and check out the services they can provide.

The Chamber breakfast has been dark for the summer but will return again in September, please be sure to mark your calendars and check back with us for more information.

Lastly, keep an eye out for the launch of the newly designed Chamber website. If you have not already done so please send us a copy of your company bio so that we can get it added to the new website. Thank you and we hope to see you all at the next breakfast, stay cool!

Goodbye Chamber!

What an incredible year and a half it has been working for the Chamber! I want to start off by thanking Melina and Myra who made this place extremely welcoming, comfortable, and witty from the very beginning.

I began interning at the Chamber my junior year of high school. It was my first job and I was very timid and reserved and from the bottom of my heart I gratefully thank the Chamber for impacting my life in such a positive light. This experience has greatly opened my mind to be fearless in the pursuit of new opportunities. I was soon able to network and branch out into other jobs while simultaneously staying with the Chamber and learning to balance a successful work and academic life.

By the end of this month, I will be going off to UCLA and I look back with immense gratitude towards the Chamber for all it has done for me. I loved the environment, I loved attending the events, I loved meeting the members, and through it all I love what the Chamber stands for. Leadership, organization, and advocating for the growth and thrive of businesses together as a community. I cannot express how grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to work here, and I treasure what I've learned about the business community and the soulful foundation of where its strength lies, within the people and the heart of the city. Thank you, I will miss you all!

Board Chair's Message

Did you know that school started back this week? You may have noticed more cars on the roads in the morning hours especially around our local schools, it may have taken you a bit longer to get to work this week or maybe there is less activity (or more) around your business due to the change in schedules. Whatever the effect on your business there is a change in the community rhythm and change normally allows us a chance to evaluate our current opportunities and challenges before moving forward. As summer (the season) comes to a close I hope you take the next few weeks to revisit your goals for the year and are able to make adjustments if necessary to push forward in meeting those goals in the second half of 2017.

Your Board Chair,
Tim Walborn

 
Ambassador Team Leader's Message

I hope everyone had a good summer and are ready to get our Chamber going again. We are always looking for our members to be involved. If you're interested in joining the Ambassadors please give me a call 951- 733-8932. We don't ask much, just simple deliveries, reminder calls to members and helping out at events. You also get to know the workings of the Chamber. Hope to hear from you all soon!

Ambassador of the Month Spotlight

Eren Cello, Montclair Hospital Medical Center

Mrs. Eren Cello was raised in Ontario, California. She attended area schools and was always very active in her community, academics and athletic activities. As the firstborn daughter of immigrant parents, it was instilled in her that service to others should be the priority of her lifetime. Eren has always followed through on that passion and is instilling the same service-oriented life in her two daughters, ages four and two. Mrs. Cello has made conscious choices in her life to work for and serve organizations that give back to people who need it the most.

Eren attended California State University at Fullerton and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, with an emphasis in Public Relations. She worked full-time and attended school full-time to support herself through her undergraduate studies. During her time as an undergrad, she also interned at Metrolink in Los Angeles in their Media and External Communications department. While at Metrolink, she learned about passenger rail, helped launch their original Twitter accounts and helped facilitate the Holiday Toy Train Express stops for children during the holidays. Simultaneously working as an intern, Eren also volunteered at House of Ruth where her passion for helping women and children grew exponentially. Immediately following her graduation from CSUF, she was hired as a Community Representative for Inland Empire Health Plan. She was one of two representatives covering all of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties' children's programs. Eren is proud of the work that she did as a representative for the nonprofit health plan as her primary focus was to find children who were uninsured - because she strongly believes that all children have the right to access healthcare. During her time at IEHP she married her high-school sweetheart, Benjamin.

Mrs. Cello continued in the pursuit of serving the public by working for the March of Dimes, Inland Empire Region, where she worked closely with the families who had lost a child, who gave birth prematurely and with the companies that raised money for research on the causes of birth defects and premature birth. Eren also worked in the marketing department of Southern California Edison where managed projects and maintained the website by working with internal departments to optimize the information they presented on the website. While she enjoyed her time at SCE - it was the community connection she missed most, and so decided to accept the position as Director of Marketing and Communications for Chino Valley Medical Center and Montclair Hospital Medical Center. Eren is fortunate and grateful that on behalf of both facilities she represents, she gets the opportunity to support the cities of Montclair and Chino, local community programs, community business owners, schools and so many more community partners. More recently, Eren has been inducted into the Chino Rotary where she will serve as board secretary with full intentions of serving the local community with scholarships, mentorship and support. Eren is also an active ambassador with the Montclair Chamber of Commerce, and a part of Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce's Young Professionals Group. Currently, Mrs. Cello is working on her Masters in Communications from the University of Southern California.

Above all, Eren is most passionate about her family and raising two strong daughters alongside her supportive and loving husband. She believes that one way to change the world is to go home and love her family, and that is what she does every day.
