Everyone agrees these are troubled times; life is not what it used to be. Our economy is floundering, business is down for many people, and a state of uncertainty exists. We experience disconnectedness, communication overload, lack of control, and we are cranky about it! You can hunker down and hope things get better, or you can move forward toward your goals.
Please join United Chambers for a motivational luncheon led by Guest Speaker Mimi Donaldson, with lots of humor, who will provide four growth strategies for tough times and the five pitfalls to avoid on your road to triumph.
The four strategies are:
- Build stronger ties to your clients and customers.
- Take time to consider what is positive.
- Redefine what your business is.
- Review all expenses and build cash reserves.
Mimi will take you from misery to mirth, and have you laughing about the very troubles that make times tough. $25 for Chamber Members and $30 for Non-Chamber Members.

TOM LABONGE NEWS
Councilmember Tom LaBonge requests that you save the date of Thursday, March 8, from 8-9 a.m. to attend a press conference with DWP representatives to formally announce the Headworks Project.
As many of you already know, especially those living in the Silver Lake and Los Feliz areas of our district, the River Supply Conduit Project has been under construction for the last two years. Yet many residents do not understand what the pipeline project is all about. This visit to the site of Headworks on Forest Lawn Drive will give you a good understanding of this massive and historic infrastructure project that will be delivering drinking water to the people of Los Angeles.
Please mark your calendars. More information to follow.
Best, Alice Roth

Love a Library
On Saturday, Feb. 25, Councilman LaBonge and the CD4 Education Collaboration hosted three District Elementary Schools for the 2012 “Love a Library” event at Central Library in downtown Los Angeles. Third-graders and their parents from Charles Kim, Rio Vista, and Franklin Avenue Elementary Schools were bussed to the Central Library for a day of learning and reading. Some 50 students and their parents participated in the event, meant to instill a lifelong love of learning and reading and to make sure the kids know that the Los Angeles Public Library is a special resource for them. Studies show that if students aren’t reading at grade-level by the third grade, they begin to fall behind and their prospects for graduation grow more remote.
