The Chamber was instrumental to our launch, including a ribbon cutting ceremony with important City officials. We are very active in the Chamber’s monthly networking and social events some of which have allowed us to show our store. Through the Chamber, we’ve met hundreds of important business and local community contacts, resulting in new business relationships and clients.
You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee’s meeting on Thursday, January 11, 2018.
We are excited this month to host a debate on the issue of "net neutrality," an important if sometimes misunderstood issue. Please join us for a discussion with perspectives from both sides of the debate over the FCC's recent changes to existing net neutrality rules. We are fortunate to welcome two different perspectives on the issues from Professors at the University of Southern California.
Mark Lloyd is a clinical professor of communication, teaching in both the Communication School and the Journalism School. Professor Lloyd is a lawyer, a public policy advocate and an Emmy award-winning journalist. From 2009-2012 he served as the associate general counsel and chief diversity officer at the Federal Communications Commission, advising the Commission on how to promote diverse participation in the communications field. Prior to joining the FCC, Mr. Lloyd was the vice president for strategic initiatives at the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights/Education Fund, where, among other duties, he led a national campaign to assist the most vulnerable communities make the successful transition to digital television service.
Professor Lloyd will be speaking in favor of net neutrality.
Milan Miric is a Assistant Professor of Data Sciences and Operations at the USC Marshall School of Business. He has researched and written extensively on both on digital innovation and competition for marketplace attention with ties to net neutrality and platform availability. Professor Miric will be speaking in favor of the recent FCC decision repealing rules on net neutrality.
We will also be receiving updates about the latest legislative and policy developments and want to hear your feedback on what our priorities should be for 2018!
This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the important issues in our City and region and to provide your input! Please join us!
