Wellness Resource Network
The Wellness Network brings together professionals/businesses with varied backgrounds to network,
learn new skills, and build relationships. This network is in place to provide leads, referrals and share
knowledge for professional and personal development. This group helps people create wellness in all
areas, body, mind, spirit, finances and business. Our motto is “if we can help enough people get what
they want we can get what we want” and in light of that we want the members to commit to getting to
know others, to referring to members and helping each grow our business. This isn’t a social group but
a group to get our core genius out to more people and achieve our goals.

The Woodland Hills~Tarzana Chamber of Commerce Community Benefit Foundation, incorporated in 2011, is an extension of the West Valley~Warner Center Chamber of Commerce. This foundation was created to further the Chamber's mission. This foundation has a 501 C3 Charitable Nonprofit status that was created to strengthen our ability to raise funds. These funds will benefit our foundation's effort to educate our business community and to offer educational events and programs to the children within our community.

The ambassadors’ goal is to increase our membership and retention.

Ambassadors also attend Ribbon-Cutting ceremonies for our new member businesses.  Most importantly, Ambassadors are cognizant of letting non-member businesses in the community the importance of being involved in their local chamber of commerce.
