Message from the President

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pride that I welcome you to the biggest Filipino American Chamber of Commerce in the United States. A usual trendsetter and a catalyst for change and progress, FACCGLA is the premier professional organization of true blooded entrepreneurs and professionals of unquestionable integrity and passion to serve the Fil-Am Community thru meaningful projects, networking mixers and workshops.

This website is a collective effort from the men and women who unselfishly contribute their time and efforts in pursuing the goals and objectives of this dynamic organization. We invite you to join us in undertaking the projects that espouse entrepreneurship and leadership programs that cater to a diverse community.

As a strong advocate of providing economic empowerment among its individual members, we open up a world of networking, marketing, advertising, public relations and training opportunities. These help startups and small enterprises grow and expand their respective businesses. Our signature mixers and Business after dark meet ups have been very well attended. Member companies also host educational workshops and participated in local trade shows as well. We also participate in international expositions/conferences and trade missions.

Believing in free enterprise, we don’t allow exclusivity in any business sector. However, we are developing a Business Referral System that gives premium value among our chamber members.

We are proud founding member of the Coalition of the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce (COFACC) and have good working relationship with the Philippine Consulate Office in Los Angeles and with the mainstream business organizations (e.g. Valley Economic Alliance and United Chamber of Commerce of San Fernando Valley), and the Asian American Chambers Alliance (AACA). All these affiliations are geared towards bringing the Fil Am businesses into the mainstream business community.

We are fortunate to have a big and diverse membership rich in experience and expertise. We draw support from a large base of volunteers who serve in our Board of Directors and our standing committees. These individuals understand that our strength lies in our ability to work together and are willing to contribute their time and talents to sustain a strong and dynamic organization.

Lets expand and grow together, we encourage you to join us in our quest to achieve a more prosperous Filipino American community. Invest in yourself, your business and your community by becoming involved with FACC-GLA.

Sincerely,

Ellen Samson
FACC GLA President
