BNI Noon Networkers at South End Racquet Club

Last week at a Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce event, I was approached about coming to a meeting of the BNI Noon Networkers at the South End Racquet and Tennis Club, which was held today. BNI stands for Business Networking International, an global business networking organization that has been around for 25 years. The premise is that each chapter limits membership to one business per category. For example, at the networking event I attended today, there was a realtor, dentist, graphic artist, auto mechanics, computer repair person and several other occupations represented. I was invited since they wanted a photographer in their chapter.

It was my first meeting with the group, and they definitely exude enthusiasm. Whether it was the recital of the BNI Networking Code of Ethics, or the 30 second pitches members [and guests] made, there was lots of applause. We were encouraged to utilize BNI to improve our VCP, Visibility, Credibility and Profitability. While I was there I did pick up a couple business cards I am pretty sure will be used and I gave out a few. If you are a small business owner, you might want to see if BNI has a chapter local to you.

Waves of Grain Beerfest 2012 – Roundhouse Aquarium Fundraiser

These photos were taken at the Waves of Grain Beerfest 2012, held at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach, CA. This was a fundraiser for Roundhouse Aquarium in Manhattan Beach, an environmental organization committed to fostering and promoting the education of the oceans, tidelands and beaches of Southern California. It is tough to beat a fundraiser that showcases craft beer, but Waves of Grain did just that by providing craft beers from around the country as well as several local breweries.

Local breweries in attendance included Bootleggers Brewery from Fullerton, Cismontane Brewing Company from Rancho Santa Margarita, Golden Road Brewing from Los Angeles, El Segundo Brewing Company, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery from Redlands, Strand Brewing Company from Torrance, Smog City Brewing from Tustin and Old Orange Brewing Company from Orange. Other breweries in attendance included Allagash Brewing Company, Anchor Brewing, Ballast Point Brewing Company, Black Market Brewing Company, Chimay, Drakes Brewing, Firestone Walker Brewing Company, Karl Strauss Brewery, Kona Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lost Coast Brewery, New Belgium Brewing, North Coast Brewing Company, Schneider-Weisse Brewery, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company, Unibroue and Widmer Brothers Brewing.

These photos are from the ribbon cutting ceremony for Budris & Van Haren, Attorneys at Law. There was an impressive turnout of Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce members; as well as The Mayor and about five city council members. The law firm of Budris & Van Haren specializes in both Criminal and Family Law. If you have a friend that needs help, don’t get involved.
