Some of you may remember parts of this post from a year ago, but I felt compelled to recall part of it.  Today, the Valley Industry Association of Santa Clarita is 30 years old!  Today marks the launch of a year long celebration for the organization and its members, culminating with a special celebration event tentatively scheduled for Friday, October 28.  I hope you will join us in celebrating the successes we have accomplished together.

Incorporated on February 9, 1981, VIA has changed in many ways since its humble beginning.  Originally a group of just 20 companies from the Valencia Industrial Center, VIA was created to push forth critical transportation initiatives.  That group discovered almost immediately that their collective voice was far more successful than each were individually. What an incredible incentive to grow!

And grow we did!  VIA, the fastest growing B2B organization in the Santa Clarita Valley, has moved in many directions over the years, but we have always remained true to our core values.  Our tag line, “Connecting and Building SCV Industry” says it all.  CEO Forums, member surveys, and regular personal contact with our members keep us in touch with pressing issues for business and allow us to continually provide real value to our membership. We have a rich history including VIA BASH events showcasing members and local industry clusters, B2B Industry Shows, Regional Executive Summits, the creation of the Valencia Learning Center (which later became the Employee Training Institute at COC), our annual Luncheon Series, the Website Contest, Connecting to Success, and VIA STAR .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIA!  I’m proud to be a part of this strong, vibrant organization and hope all of you will stay tuned for the next 30!
