On February 7th our California State Assemblymember, Adrin Nazarian, spent the morning visiting a few Toluca Lake Chamber Members. It was a great opportunity for our members to personally ask questions and raise concerns about State Government, and how it affects their business. Assemblymember Nazarian fielded questions and listened intently. It was a productive session. We are hoping to have another round soon, so if you are interested in participating, please let us know! info@TolucaLakeChamber.com
