Teaming Up with California State Polytechnic University

By Zeb Welborn | March 6, 2020 |

The Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce has dedicated its mission to the development of local businesses and those within our community.

President, Zeb Welborn knows this mission starts by playing an active role in the growth and education of those who will take the baton next. He acknowledges this by saying, “the biggest responsibility of a Chamber is to promote business in the area they serve. Helping and supporting youth is a great way to fulfill the mission of our Chamber”.

When Zeb saw an opportunity within the Chamber Valley of Commerce website, he decided that student perspectives would greatly improve and modernize the online presence of the chamber. After going to the office about internship programs, he was connected to professor Dr. Kristen Schiele and her Digital Marketing classes.

“Connecting my students with the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce was a wonderful experience. Zeb was so great to work with, and I truly appreciate the great opportunity he gave my classes” says Dr. Kristen Schiele. This connection later created enough content for two classes to benefit from Zeb’s original internship program request.

Students were presented with the real life task of improving the online presence of an organization and were made accountable for their participation. This accountability made students gain a higher desire to succeed in this project. Student, Ashley Quintero says, “it allowed me to put my creative side to work…I believe working with a real organization really gives you that push to do your best and take it seriously. It allowed (me) to put what I learned throughout my college career in the college of business and show what I have to offer.”

The entire community has benefited from this project that exposed Cal Poly Business students to the actual marketing needs of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce. Students gained real life marketing experience to place on their portfolios, the chamber had hands on involvement in the development of these students whilst the Chamber received valuable insight from a fresh set of eyes, and students have new resources for their future endeavours.

Student Experience on Real Life Marketing Needs:

Unlike most semester projects, this one, that partnered with Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, allows students to include their submissions into their personal portfolio to share with future job prospects. Students were assigned to study the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce’s mission and compare it to its online presence. Once those observations have been made, they were assigned to create various forms of website and marketing recommendations to present to Zeb Welborn.

The pressure of presenting how they have used what they’ve learned to a real client encourages a student to try their best for the organization, the organization’s president, and for their own personal brand and portfolio. Quintero says, “Most companies hire marketing interns or employees to bring in more customers, members, sales, etc and change their status. Chino Valley definitely needed this and we gained the desire and obligation to make this company better in marketing to attract new members”.

Although not what they are normally used to, students agree that this project has enhanced the skills they have been working on their entire school career. When asked what skills they feel were improved during this Ethan Dang lists, “content creation, communication with team members, and public speaking,” as improved qualifications while Nick Nguyen explains that his, “time management, designing, and analysis skills” were polished during this project.

Students were given a task that involved a real client in an environment where it was encouraged to communicate their ideas with each other. This created a team amongst them where each member would guide their peers in their strengths and lean on one another when approaching something new. Quintero mentions this project approach, “makes you rethink and question yourself in a positive way to improve”.

Learning concepts like web design, digital marketing, and marketing strategy to later present as recommendations to Zeb helped students gain knowledge of those concepts, and real life marketing experience, preparing them for their post graduate lives.

CHAMBER INVOLVEMENT IN DEVELOPING STUDENTS OF COMMUNITY:

The Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce’s hands on involvement boosted self confidence in students and helped them gain more passion for the skills they seek to improve. Student, Ethan Dang says “Once we were able to connect and communicate with the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, my perspective of the organization shifted. I became invested in demonstrating my best efforts to help them as much as possible”.

In order for students to get the full digital marketing experience from this project, they had to understand why Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce online presence was important. Zeb Welborn emphasizes, “The Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce is the hub of the Chino Valley business community. The better we can make our business both online and offline, the better it is for our businesses”.

Knowing that the quality of the work they present to Zeb has an effect on the betterment of local businesses, transformed the classroom into a conference room. Professor Dr. Kristen Scheile says, “by working with the Chamber, the students learned about real problems the organization is facing and were able to work together to give solutions for the client”.

This project was not only about their grade, it was also about putting what was learned into practice. This type of learning experience makes the learning objectives students gained more memorable. Dang says, “I can utilize these tools greatly in my own career. I would be able to show my future company that I am knowledgeable with their competitive analysis and be able to provide ideas on how they can improve their company in an interview. I feel like having these resources at my disposal will exponentially benefit me in finding my future career and applying when I am working.”

By the end of the semester, students had created detailed website suggestions, information videos promoting the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Events, and website platform new posts ideas to improve engagement with members. When asked about student feedback Zeb responded, “I enjoyed the honest feedback from the students at Cal Poly Pomona. It forced me to focus on our online presence and how we can make better changes to our website and marketing efforts to have a bigger impact for the businesses we represent.”

Student Exposure to Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce:

Overall, students were exposed to the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and how a Chamber of Commerce organization really is beneficial to local businesses it supports. This is important because no matter their future endeavours, a chamber of commerce is a great opportunity for a business student to use as a resource.

Dr. Schiele says, “Before this project, a lot of students didn’t know exactly what the role of a chamber of commerce even was. Now the students understand the value this type of organization provides small businesses and how to communicate that value to others using social media”.

Student Noe Ramirez admits, “I did not know much about this organization, but after this learned that many cities or communities have these groups available for people seeking to gain new customers and expand their business. I was able to gain the insight that it is always important to network with others”.

Another student, Diana Mora, acknowledges after the project, “I’m glad the Chino Valley of Commerce was our client. We learned about the multiple opportunities and supporting community the commerce companies provides”. In order to obtain new photo suggestions for future advertising, students were encouraged to attend at least one Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce event.

Another student refers to the 2019 Business Expo they attended saying, “it was worth every minute to be there”. Additionally, Minerva Young was able to attend the Chino Hills State of the City Address reflecting, “they were both nice events that gave citizens the opportunity to learn more about the resources and businesses the city has to offer.”

This project was a great way to expose students to opportunities to network and boost their success through networking and using resources provided. Students themselves gained awareness of a new tool they can refer to if they need or desire a business owner support system.

When asked if they can see themselves signing up to their local Chamber of Commerce in the future, many students acknowledged that there was a high chance. Student, Natalie Nieto, supports this saying, “my dream is to create my own clothing business and run a few shops in different cities. I do plan to join my own local Chamber of Commerce in the future so I can help my own and other local businesses by sharing ideas or tips, being a part of a community”.

By actively participating in improving the online presence of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, students gained a better understanding of why it is so beneficial for a business organization to join. This is something they will keep in mind as they join or create organizations in their local community and throughout their own careers.

Reflection: Teaming Up with Cal Poly Pomona

The community benefited by exposing a real life problem/improvement based project to the business students of Cal Poly Pomona.

Zeb says “By collaborating with students at Cal Poly Pomona we are creating opportunities for students to apply real world applications on the things they’re learning in class and the Chamber benefits by incorporating those strategies to market ourselves and our businesses better. It’s a win-win.”

This project was a semester long experience for students who felt they had a true effect on the betterment of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce. What is normally perceived as just a school project was now being valued as something they can show to other prospects. Being able to focus on content they created and present those ideas to Zeb was a confidence booster and impacted the way the students perceived the project.

Professor, Dr. Kristen Schiele, says, “from this project, I will always remember how proud the students were as they presented their final projects…In their presentations, you could tell they were now more confident with the digital tools and technologies. I’m just so proud of them and everything they’ve accomplished”.

Furthermore, student Mariano Cardenas remarks there is another reason he gave this particular project her/his best, “I supported the cause we were behind. I am all for supporting your local business and upon learning that this is part of what Chambers of Commerce do I was happy to be apart of this project”.

Either way, students reflect that they were both excited and highly involved with the project every step of the way. These potential local business owners gained and polished skills and learned how to communicate with each other as a group while learning how to communicate and give feedback to other groups. Because everyone in the room had the same goal in mind, which was to improve the online presence of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, outside and personal factors were set aside so that full focus could be placed onto this project which made students feel a greater sense of pride and accomplishment once the project was over.

Quintero reflects that what will be most memorable is, “the validation and how fulfilling it is for someone to comment and listen to your recommendations to better their company. By Chino Valley using our content and putting to use our recommendations makes me feel more prepared and confident into working in marketing and continuing my career” which supports the overall mission of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Welcome to the Chamber,    TOCA Chino Hills

By Zeb Welborn | March 6, 2020 |
TOCA Chino Hills and the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce

“We welcome TOCA to the Chino Valley,” said Zeb Welborn, president of the local Chamber of Commerce. “This facility is a terrific recreational resource for our local community. And it contributes considerably to our local economy, creating jobs, contributing to the corporate tax base and attracting people from around the Inland Empire to play in Chino Hills.”

Chino Valley Chamber Gives $1,900 to Chaffey College Journalism Students

By Zeb Welborn | February 4, 2020 |

Clark Canedy, owner of Management Strategic Ideas, Inc., in collaboration with the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce donated $1,900 to Chaffey College journalism students.

Ekta Samtani from New York Life

Clark is a new member of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce who attended a recent Business @ Breakfast event where we asked for businesses to donate items for our weekly opportunity drawing. Clark donated four Discovery flights out of Chino Airport donated by DuBois Aviation to members of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce.

He was then inspired to use this as an opportunity to connect the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce with the Chaffey College Journalism Program. He connected with Professor Michelle Dowd about the possibility to offer scholarships to these students who “covered” the flights.

Students attended the flight and documented the Chino Valley Chamber members experiences and then created multimedia packages to record the experience.

Every student in Professor Dowd’s Journalism class received some form of scholarship for a total of $1,900 donated by Clark Canedy.

Clark presented the awards on Wednesday, January 22 on behalf of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce with Sandy Graham from West Coast Magazine and Robert Ceja with Robert’s Bariatric Services.

Here is the winning video from the winning team – James Maloney Flying with DuBois Aviation – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j_EWEC9r1w

Hot Deals, Business Expo, Workforce Development and More

By Zeb Welborn | November 11, 2019 |

President’s Report #10

It’s been a crazy start to the Chamber year as we’ve begun tackling some major new initiatives:

  • Hot Deal Program
  • Workforce Development Program

 while also putting on some fantastic events:

  • Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Expo
  • Chino Hills State of the City
  • Chess Not Checkers

Hot Deal Program

Our first email went out about our Hot Deal Program last week and we’ll be sharing our Hot Deals through our emails and sending these emails to large companies in town. 

The purpose of our Hot Deal program is to raise awareness to the businesses who take advantage of creating Hot Deals through our Chamber member software, provide value for our members and community and encourage businesses to do business locally. 

Check out the Hot Deal email we sent last week. If you’re a member, this is a great way to promote your business to our members, community and large employee organizations based in the Chino Valley.
View the email here – https://conta.cc/2CmCVRV

Workforce Development Program

Now that our Hot Deal Program is in full swing, our next initiative is to develop a strong workforce development program here locally by connecting employers with employees. 

Many companies are not aware of the resources available to them when it comes to hiring new employees. Our goal with the program is to be a resource for these organizations so that when they do have hiring needs in the Chino Valley we can be the one stop shop for all resources connected to employment in the Chino Valley.

Interested in helping us in Workforce Development? Take this quick 4-question survey – https://forms.gle/TidCvYjvxMzoRhFLA

Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Expo

Our 2019 Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce was a huge success this year. We surveyed all attendees and businesses that participated in the event and received overwhelmingly positive responses. 

We have tons of personal anecdotes from businesses who transacted a lot of business that day. We were excited to connect so many businesses with each other and our community.

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2019 Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Expo by attending, exhibiting, sponsoring, donating or volunteering.

As always, we’ve had some great Business @ Breakfast events, Mixers, Grand Openings, Ribbon Cuttings, Ambassador Meetings and lots, lots more. Take a look at all we’ve been up to the past few months by checking us out on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/ChinoValleyChamberOfCommerce/

As you can see the amount of businesses getting involved in our Chamber is growing!

The Year in Review:

Thank you for being a part of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and helping us get stronger. It’s because of our members, staff, Board of Directors, Ambassadors, and community that we’ve been able to grow so substantially this year.

It’s important for a business organization to give back to the community we serve. I’m thrilled to say that this year we also raised $13,439.83 for local non-profits through our Southern California Charity Golf Classic.

Goals for 2019/2020:

We are excited that Vice Mayor of Chino Hills, Art Bennett has agreed to become our Chairman of the Board for the 2019/2020 year. Art wants to see us grow this year and we’ve laid out a list of goals for the new year to continue this upward trend that we are on:

  • Create a More Active Presence in the Community by Attending/Establishing a Presence at Community and Local Business Events
  • Create Ways to Get Students/Education Connected with the Chamber 

Chino State of the City

Alexander Reyes

Alex was hired by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in 1990 and was assigned to Chino Hills Station in May 2008.  He has continuously remained a dedicated employee who accepts any task with a positive attitude.  Alex gives his maximum effort no matter how big or small the task. 

He has participated in countless events and conducted station tours.  He routinely dresses up as McGruff the crime dog and represents the department in a positive manner.  A few of the events Alex assisted with this year were, Red Ribbon Week, St. Jude’s fundraiser at Chili’s Restaurant, and active shooter training at the Community Center.  

Alex can achieve department objectives in a wide variety of assignments.  His current duties include front desk coverage, automotive pool, patrol, and special events.  He also serves a mentor for new Sheriff’s Service Specialists. 

His professionalism, maturity, and kind demeanor assist him in developing positive relationships with everyone he contacts.  Alex is a hard-working member of the Chino Hills team and an invaluable asset to the department. 

2018 Deputy of the Year: Deputy Eric Bradshaw

Chino Hills Police Department 2018 Deputy of the Year Deputy Eric Bradshaw

Eric Bradshaw

Eric was hired by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in 2012 and has been assigned to the Chino Hills station since August 2015.  Due to his commitment and passion for law enforcement, Eric received the Top Cop Award/Certificate from San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman, MADD Certificate of Achievement/Recognition award, and in November 2018 became a Field Training Officer.

In the last 12 months, Eric authored approximately 180 reports, issued 70 citations and arrested 93 suspects. In June 2018, Eric conducted an occupied vehicle check and recovered narcotics. Eric gathered pertinent information during the interview and subsequent search of the suspect’s cell phone. Eric authored and served a search warrant for the residence of the drug dealer who provided the suspect drugs. As result of the search, Eric recovered six firearms, counterfeit money, and methamphetamine.

Eric is an avid photographer and conducts photo shoots regularly.  Eric has used his photography skills to assist the Department.

It is because of Eric’s excellent work ethic, decision-making skills, and consistent high performance that he was unanimously selected by his supervisors for the Deputy of the Year award.

Chino Police Department:

2018 Officer of the Year: Officer Fortino Amancio

2018 Officer of the Year Officer Fortino Amancio

Fortino Amancio

Officer Amancio has been an officer with the Chino Police Department since 2013.  He was previously employed as a Deputy Sheriff with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. He has a natural ability to discover those engaging in criminal activity.  And, more importantly, he is willing to put in the work necessary to hold those individuals responsible for their actions.

Officer Amancio was recognized for several outstanding cases in the past year which showed his tenacity as a Patrol Officer to uncover criminal activity. His observations and immediate response led to the arrest of several criminals in his beat.  

In addition to his crime fighting efforts, Officer Amancio also exemplifies our Chino PD culture through his customer service and community outreach.  He is often seen at Community Outreach events such as National Night Out, Citizen Academy, Explorer Academy, Shop with a Cop and Toys for Tots.  On more than one occasion this past year, community members that have had Officer Amancio respond to their calls for service have called back to express how impressed they were with his courteous and polite nature, his patience, his kindness, and his compassion.  In one instance, an elderly woman was suffering from an episode related to her dementia.  Officer Amancio was able to speak calmly to the woman and resolve the situation.  The woman’s adult daughter called to compliment Officer Amancio explaining that his efforts were far more successful than her own in trying to calm her mother down.  

In another example, Officer Amancio conducted a vehicle check.  After contacting the occupants, he learned that this family of five, 2 adults and 3 children, were living in their car.  Due to the cold conditions, Officer Amancio found them a hotel room and provided out of his own pocket the funds necessary to pay for the room.  

Officer Amancio consistently leads his team in terms of productivity and he is regarded as a hard-working, professional, and cool-headed.  He was selected as the Beat Cop of the Quarter for July -September of 2018 and for all his efforts throughout the Year, Officer Tino Amancio is being awarded Officer of the Year.

2018 Civilian of the Year: Vanessa Cuellar

Chino Police Department Civilian of the Year Vanessa Cuellar

Vanessa Cuellar

Cadet Vanessa Cuellar was hired with the Chino Police Department in December of 2015.  Prior to being hired, Vanessa was a volunteer Police Explorer for 2 years.  Over the past year, Cadet Vanessa Cuellar has shown that she is a team player, a leader, and an ambassador for the department.  With some changes in staffing to our Training Unit, Vanessa was tasked with new assignments and responsibilities.  She took on the tasks of a full-time employee while maintaining part-time hours and attending college full-time.  

Cadet Cuellar was able to identify shortcomings in processes and has created more efficient and effective ways of completing the tasks assigned to her.  Having the responsibility of signing people up for training classes, making travel arrangements, and booking hotels for a Department that places a large emphasis on training requires extraordinary attention to detail.  Vanessa has done an outstanding job and has tracked and accounted for every expense.  She is not only up to date with this complex assignment but she remains ahead of schedule.    

Cadet Cuellar is also not afraid to show her vulnerability.  When she has a question, she asks.  And more than that, she doesn’t just send a quick email.  She makes a concerted effort to meet face to face or at least speak over the phone with whomever she is making arrangements for so she can be sure that she has all the information she needs to complete her task.  She is an excellent communicator and she fulfills her responsibilities accurately and with excellent customer service.  

Cadet Cuellar recently showed her leadership abilities when we received a new cadet to the Training Unit. During a transitional period, she would coordinate, train and help the new cadet with her new tasks. In addition to that, she completed her own assigned work, and mentored the new cadet so she would be more efficient and productive.   

Vanessa not only excels at work related tasks, she also donates her personal time to help others. She regularly helps with the use of force simulator during Citizens Academy and Youth Academy.  She also volunteers her time with the Explorer program, the Explorer Academy and the Active Shooter Community Workshops.  She was also a part of the Cadet Christmas tree give-away where our Cadets delivered Christmas trees and presents to families in need within the city.  

Vanessa truly exemplifies our Chino PD culture.  Please join me in congratulating, Cadet Vanessa Cuellar as our Civilian Employee of the Year.
