Spotlight on the International Executives Association

Did you know that The Executives Association of Orange County is part of the 40-chapter International Executives Association, spanning from Hawaii to Great Britain?  At this week’s meeting, EAOC members were treated to an impressive presentation by IEA Managing Director Lisa Jordan, discussing the exciting benefits that members get to enjoy by being a part of such a HUGE network! 

Members are automatically enrolled as IEA members upon joining EAOC, adding their business information to the widely-viewed, 3,000-member IEA online international directory!  Members also gain access to the IEA newsletters, including FREE webinar announcements, networking opportunities, marketing advice, and an invitation to the members-only annual IEA conference, happening in exciting Las Vegas, Nevada in 2024!

The IEA has been in existence since its first chapter started in 1916, and practically INVENTED business networking and referrals!  So, needless to say, it was nothing short of an HONOR to have Lisa share her wisdom with us this week, and we look forward to flexing our IEA muscles within Orange County! 

For more information on the International Executives Association, or to learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Lisa at director@ieaweb.com.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Happy Friday, and Happy upcoming 3-day weekend!  We had 20 members in attendance this week, in person and on Zoom, to listen to our International Executives Association Executive Director, LIsa Jordan. Lisa gave a great presentation featuring all of the benefits we have as EAOC members through IEA. Some of the benefits include discounts on travel, services in other states, and opportunities to have a banner ad and FREE webinars. 

Lisa recommended updating your IEA profile (click HERE) and making sure your IEA app works on your phone, too. 

Remember, there is NO meeting next Wednesday in observance of Memorial Day, and we meet in person at the Green Parrot Villa on June the 5th when Estela Go, with Go Family Dental will be our presenter. Please arrive by 6:45 AM so we can start on time at 7:00 AM.

"Remember, while Memorial Day is often associated with celebrations, it’s essential to reflect on the sacrifices made by these heroes. Let us honor their memory and express our gratitude for their selfless service."

“If words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice.” —Ronald Reagan

Have a great weekend!

What People are Saying

When I was invited to be a part of the EAOC, I had no idea that a “by invitation only” networking group existed. Well, we’ve been around since the early 70’s. And, what a great group of business associates we have. 

Not only are these members excellent business owners that I can refer my clients to, they are an invaluable source of knowledge for me and my clients. 

Often, merely providing information is just what was needed. These professionals are like my business partners, they are champions of my business as well as their own. 

Joining this group of dedicated business professionals has been the key to my success and I’m happy to be a part of this fantastic group. 

Gizi Clemmer, FirstTeam Real Estate

I joined EAOC because of a friend.  In my first year I have gained over 10k in continual annual business.

Quinton Fasola, ASURE Software

In the past 42 years I have received many good leads that have become good clients.  Many of them are still clients of the firm I am with today (This represented 50% of the clients that I merged into the new firm).  I have used many past and current members for a reliable source of good and reputable suppliers for both business and personal needs, including several members that helped me make profitable investments over the years.

Hal Grimshaw, Belden Hiramoto Liu & Co., LLP

I joined EAOC because Phil Kintz asked me. At the time the cost and early meeting time was a concern. The first six months of membership I received an extra $6000 in volume.

Gary Gregg, Creating With Glass

I have been a member for many years in several different classifications. EAOC has always provided me with a steady flow of leads. However the biggest benefit I’ve received has been “outside” of the core purpose of leads. A past member John Valentine, mentioned to me that he had heard about some industrial land for sale in Costa Mesa. I ended up buying it, building a warehouse and running my business at the time (South Coast Stationers) there for about thirty years. It was an excellent investment.

Pete Sloan,

A lead from Past member Bob Hardman eight years ago resulted in $15,000 of business. A lead from Mel Smith eight years ago resulted in $25,000 of business. Benefits of membership include direct business from other members resulting in $10,000 in business and direct business with other members that resulted in excellent service and financial savings.

Carlos Salazar, Salazar Associates

I have built my entire business on leads from the EAOC. I started my association management firm in 1981 with one client EAOC. In the last thirty four years the business has grown to fourteen associations. We employ eleven full time and one part time employee. I can trace ten of my long term clients to referrals from EAOC that brings in over $500,000 annually. The network of present and passed members has had a tremendous impact on my life.

Gayle Stewart, Gayle Stewart Enterprises

EAOC has been a reliable source of steady business for me for about thirty years. Thank You EAOC!
