It’s the Celebration of the Century! A once in a century celebration in honor of Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce members who have supported the chamber through to its 100th anniversary.

On Thursday, Feb. 23, the SCV Chamber will commemorate this historic milestone with a celebration of chamber members and the thriving SCV business community.

Join the celebration for an evening of awards, food and cocktails. The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Canyon Country Community Center, 18410 Sierra Highway, Santa Clarita, CA 91351.

Becki Robb, of Princess Cruises, will serve as the Centennial Chair of the SCV Chamber Board. Robb will lead the chamber as it enters its second century of existence. She is the Senior Director, Special Events at Princess Cruises. In her role, she plans and executes special events, sales and marketing functions for Princess Cruises, including shipboard events, ship launches, new product initiatives and sales trade shows.

“It is with the upmost honor that I pass the chair baton over to Becki Robb, as I closed out the Chamber’s first 100 years,” said Dr. Chris Raigosa, 2022 Chair of the SCV Chamber Board. “To be part of the bridge that connects the first 99 years to what this new century will bring for the SCV Chamber is truly monumental, and I am glad to be part of that history. I have full faith and trust that Becki will lead the SCV Chamber on a continued upward path and set the bar higher for future Chairs to come.”

The SCV Chamber has been at the forefront of the business community and the history that it is known for. The SCV Chamber has had the role of leading the business community throughout the Santa Clarita Valley since 1923 and has continued to grow to be the largest membership-based organization in the third largest city of Los Angeles County. The SCV Chamber has fostered relationships with elected officials, local, state, and federal government officials, and partner organizations, locally and federally, to ensure Santa Clarita is home to a vibrant business community.

“Becki has been an instrumental member of the board of directors and executive committee and we are excited for her to lead us in our Centennial”, said Ivan Volschenk, President and CEO of the SCV Chamber. “We thank Dr. Raigosa for his strong leadership and successes in 2022 and look forward to his continued involvement. Our Centennial anniversary will build on the rich history of the Chamber, our current successes and on future plans.”

Robb will be sworn in during the Centennial Awards + Installation.

Chiquita Canyon returns as Title Sponsor and Platinum sponsors include the City of Santa Clarita, Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Kaiser Permanente, Shadowbox Studios and Kiwi Restaurant Partners.

Sponsorships for the Centennial Awards + Installation are now available, email the SCV Chamber to find out more.

Tickets to the Centennial Celebration are $150 each, SCV Chamber members and nonmembers.
