Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce appointed LyNea “LB” Bell as President of the Hollywood Chapter effective December 1, 2021. Bell has a history of community involvement, business leadership and working with non-profit organizations.
The Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce (SCBCC) is a business organization dedicated to improving the economic environment for the minority business community and fostering business development and prosperity, placing particular focus on economic development, community development, public policy, and membership services.
Bell is an avid entrepreneur and business owner raised around a rich history in community development and growth. She has gained her insight being the daughter of Regina Bell-Roberts, a quadriplegic who raised triplets while being appointed by the Seattle Governor to the legislative wing on the Committee of Disability Issues and Employment.
“I am honored to be a part of the Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce and I look forward to serving the business owners within the Hollywood and surrounding communities,” says Bell. “My goal is to network within our communities, successfully partnering with businesses to build strong economic opportunities that will further sprout growth. SCBCC supplies the channels of information so we as a community can gain access and provide knowledge to utilize the resources available. As business owners and leaders in our community, we must do everything to empower economic increase. My plans are to provide access to all available grants, loans, and any type of assistance available, to empower business owners to be prepared and ready to take advantage of those programs as they come.”
