La Habra Business Summit an Overwhelming Success
American First Credit Union, The City of La Habra and Business Leaders
Join Forces to Promote Economic Vitality
La Habra, Calif., April 7th, 2011— American First Credit Union and the City of La Habra’s Mayor’s Office hosted La Habra’s first Business Summit on March 8th, 2011. The Summit brought together sixteen business leaders and local merchants to encourage consumer awareness and promote economic vitality in the city. The core philosophy of the Summit was that “great things will happen when great minds and leaders come together to make extraordinary things happen.” American First Credit Union hosted the Summit as part of its unique partnership with the City of La Habra to promote economic vitality within the community they serve. American First plans to reach out similarly to the cities of their other branch locations, including Buena Park, Orange and Tustin. “The City of La Habra would like to thank American First and all of our attendees for their support and participation in the Business Summit,” said Mayor Jim Gomez. “As city leaders, we recognize that rather than helping businesses ‘out’, we need to help them ‘up’, and this Summit was our first successful step towards reaching that goal.”
“We are extremely excited about the results from the Summit and the new economic ideas that resulted from business leaders coming together to focus on the future of our community,” said Pam Easley, President and CEO of American First Credit Union. “The Business Summit is just one of the ways American First is putting ‘Community First’ by showing our support of the communities we serve.”
