The Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) has opened a Los Angeles Chapter, it announced during the inaugural AMAC LA Business Diversity Event at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The AMAC LA chapter is one of six chapters nationwide that AMAC recently launched. Local chapters were developed to position AMAC to grow its membership base, expand advocacy efforts, align with local interests, strengthen AMAC’s brand, and enhance its value proposition.
AMAC celebrated the launch of its Los Angeles Chapter in partnership with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) Airports during the diversity event aimed helping local minority business owners and entrepreneurs learn about airport concessions, how to do business with LAX, and how to advance their business journeys in the airport and across the industry.
“We are thrilled to kick off our LA chapter with this dynamic event, which highlights the support we offer our members daily, from understanding the airport to connecting veteran operators with newcomers,” said Martha Valenzuela, president, AMAC LA. “We are always looking to help our members take their business to the next level, and having a regional chapter here in LA is just one more way we are doing that.”
The event, which was held on Nov. 15, included experienced minority airport business owners, concessions operators, local minority business owners, and entrepreneurs. It helped local minority business owners and entrepreneurs learn about airport concessions, how to do business with LAX, and how to advance their business journeys in the airport and across the industry.
