Christina Davis, president/CEO of the LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce, has been installed as the new president of the Westside Council of Chambers of Commerce (WC3).
Davis was officially sworn in during an installation breakfast Feb. 15. The WC3 advocates for business issues on the Westside of Los Angeles County to advance business and business ideas regarding issues including transportation, entertainment, and tourism, locally and on the state and federal levels.

The keynote speaker for this event was Hilary Norton of FAST (Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic), who spoke about traffic studies and solutions for the Westside and encouraged chamber leaders to unite under this major issue.
