CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Diana Williams ~CEO View Profile
My position at the Chamber of Commerce is a natural progression. Leading sales forces, creating marketing and sales campaigns to ensure increased production as well as office management have been my focus throughout a 29-year professional career. It is my hope that this experience will contribute to the growth of the members' businesses.
Joining the Woodland Hills~Tarzana Chamber of Commerce as CEO/ Executive Director is a great pleasure. My husband, David, and I reside in Woodland Hills with our 3 wonderful canine boys. As homeowners, we are passionate about the community and are enthusiastic about watching it prosper. It's exciting to know that your membership with the Chamber will increase your visibility and contribute to your success. The success of the business owners and residents directly impacts the progress of our community. I am looking forward to my involvement in growing the membership with Jen Svejda as well as working with the Board to increase recognition of the Woodland Hills~Tarzana Chamber as a top Chamber in the Nation.

Felicia Paust~Executive Assistant View Profile
In October 2008, I experienced firsthand, how being laid off due to cutbacks, has no prejudice. It just happens. The other entity that also has “no prejudice” is the support of family, friends and community. I have always understood and appreciated the importance of family and friends and now realize the impact and significance of being supported by my community.
Advice came from everywhere, even voices on the telephone from people I would never meet in person but still meant so much. One of the best suggestions I received was to volunteer! I was able to a learn a new trade which helped me with various computer programs, several aspects of event planning and of course the great benefits of networking with so many wonderful people!
I am so thankful a position opened up in the Woodland Hills ~ Tarzana Chamber of Commerce because I knew right away I loved being a part of it! I want to thank everyone for all their kind words, Jen Svejda for making me laugh daily and being so supportive and last but not least, Diana Williams for completely believing in me and working so hard for me to be a permanent fixture in the Chamber office and for being a great teacher.
I cannot measure my gratitude. I am proud to be part of the WHTCC Office staff!
