Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- The Armenian American Chamber of Commerce and the United Armenian American Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to serve the Armenian business community. The two groups will act together under the name Armenian American Chamber of Commerce. The new chamber will be based in Glendale but will serve businesses throughout Southern California. "We're working the same community and we had basically the same mission, so we decided it didn't make any sense to serve the same community separately," said Armen Janian, honorary chairman of the new group.

The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce announced that it is canceling their 6th Annual Juried Art Exhibit due to lack of entries. The deadline, which was March 25, yielded 113 less slides than 2004, making it impossible to go forward with the event. "We are disappointed," said Executive Director Liz Church. "The chamber is analyzing what created such a drop in participation, since last year was one of the best responses we have ever had." Cancellation of the Juried Art Exhibit also means there will be no Art Reception which was scheduled for May 6 at Whites Gallery.

Problems we all have them. Think about this: Problems cannot be solved at the same level of thinking at which they were created. Look at problems as a normal part of the cycle of life. Change them to challenges and what do you have to lose? A problem. The Chamber needs your help. Membership is vital to the Chamber and by belonging to your local chamber of commerce you are doing your community part by enriching the businesses in the community where you live and work. A big thank you to Tuscany Spa for hosting our May mixer last week.

With new insurance exchanges created by federal healthcare reform launching next week, members of Glendale's business community heard Wednesday how the changes may affect them. Although the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is in its early stages, the event gave the roughly 50 attendees a chance to look ahead at its impacts, including a mandate that businesses with more than 50 employees must offer health insurance to workers - a requirement that's been pushed back to the beginning of 2015.

The Glendale Chamber of Commerce plans to move from its home of more than 40 years in an effort to shed the extra office space once needed for file cabinets and other pre-tech advances. When the chamber moved into the 3,500-square-foot building at 200 S. Louise St. in 1968, there were no computers, so more space was needed for workers and file cabinets, said Judee Kendall, the chamber's executive vice president. Today, computers store information and work has been streamlined considerably, meaning fewer employees are needed.

AIRPORT DISTRICT — The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday that it has rejected the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority’s application for noise relief at Bob Hope Airport. The long-awaited decision deals a major blow to the thousands of residents who have fought for a nighttime noise curfew since the 1970s. The airport authority’s proposal — nine years and $7 million in the making — would have forbid air traffic at Bob Hope Airport between 10 p.m. and 6:59 a.m., with exceptions for emergency flights and medical aircraft.
