Carpinteria Valley Chamber Sets October Trip to China

Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce members and the public alike are invited to participate in the chamber’s Third Annual Business Leaders Familiarization Trip to China, scheduled for Oct. 18-26.

“This exciting trip is open to everyone in the community and beyond — at an unbelievable price of only $1,599 per person, based on double occupancy,” Lynda Lang, chamber president and CEO, said Tuesday.

The registration deadline is Aug. 1.

The nine-day trip includes round-trip international airfare from LAX to Beijing via Air China, four-star and/or five-star Western-style hotel stays, three full meals each day, deluxe tour buses, English-speaking tour guides, admission to attractions, airport taxes throughout the trip, and transfers to and from Carpinteria to LAX. Cities included on the itinerary include Beijing, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai, with visits to Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall, economic development zones, temples and gardens.

A free information and orientation meeting will be held 5:45-7 p.m. June 16 at the Carpinteria Women’s Club, 1059 Vallecito Road. Chamber representatives will be present to answer questions, along with members who have previously toured. A slide show and refreshments will be offered. All those who have made reservations, as well as any interested guests, are encouraged to attend the presentation. RSVP by June 13 by calling the chamber at 805.684.5479 x10.

Maxine Kelley is the Carpinteria Valley Chamber of Commerce‘s office manager and executive assistant.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
