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.

GLENDALE & LOS ANGELES
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) Music Director Jeffrey Kahane weaves together works old, new, and somewhere in between in a fascinating orchestral program that opens with the world premiere of Old Keys, a new concerto by young composer and piano virtuoso Timothy Andres, winner of the prestigious 2011 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer award. Old Keys, an abstract piano concerto about form and gesture, was composed as part of LACO’s innovative “Sound Investment” commissioning program, now in its second decade.
Concertgoers are invited to celebrate the new work with LACO musicians in the lobby after the concert. Complimentary refreshments are provided for all ticket holders.
Tickets ($24–$105) are on sale now and may be purchased online at laco.org, by calling LACO at (213) 622-7001, or at the venue box office on the night of the concert, if tickets remain. Discounted tickets are also available by phone for seniors 65 years of age and older and groups of 12 or more. College students may purchase rush tickets one hour before curtain.
