He started his career in the grocery industry, working his way up to store manager. During that time, gained the confidence to begin my next chapter. He began volunteering and interned in Mayor Libby Schaaf's office before eventually joining the full-time. Oliver is now the Director of Public Affairs for Argent Materials, Inc.

As Oakland returns to our new post-COVID normal, challenges remain including costs of new construction, uncertainty about office occupancy, and public safety challenges - are clouding our economic recovery. Yet transformative projects are in the pipeline, and it is a city with rich assets and diversity that bodes well for the future. What projects are redefining the city? What sectors are growing? How is remote work changing city and developers' views on the mix of office and housing? Howard Terminal, Port and Airport developments, hospital expansions, transit-oriented projects, logistics facilities, housing, and office.

The OMCC wants to congratulate and celebrate the Grand Opening of BFT Rockridge (BodyFit Training Rockridge). Our very own Board President, Ken Maxey, will be on site this Saturday for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony.

BFT is different, with more complete and scientific training, more equipment, more coaching, more space to train - and most importantly, more focused on all-around strength training - with the right amount of HIIT - to promote long-term health and fitness.

With 2-3x the coaching of most studios, they offer the best elements of 1:1 personal training (at a fraction of that cost) and the best of high-energy small group training to motivate and engage you week after week.

To celebrate their grand opening, they're offering discounts on memberships through Sunday along with free classes this weekend. To sign up for a free session, click here: https://bit.ly/BFTGrandOpen

Today marks the first day of Leadership Oakland for the Class of 2024! We're excited to introduce the participants of this year's cohort and the wide array of businesses they represent throughout Oakland.

Born and raised in Oakland, California, Chenoa Denard hails from a matriarchal family, I have only been able to see women as one thing: leaders. Her first leadership role was given to her at age two when she became a big sister- a complex job for a capable girl.

From then on, she knew what she wanted to do: teach. After high school, she studied Early Childhood Development classes while working at Oklahoma State University Credit Union. From there, she returned home and began working at 1st United Credit Union, where she will celebrate her 20th anniversary with the branch in August 2023. Within those twenty years, she became the Branch manager, a Notary Public Officer for California, a certified facilitator- leading workshops focused on honing leadership and coaching skills, and a seat holder for the board of Policies and Member Interaction. Her favorite part about the job is her ability to guide and cultivate her team, living out her adolescent dreams of teaching. She aims to expand her career as Regional Manager, overseeing the entire Bay Area division of 1st United.

Mayonah Shine graduated from Berkeley Adult School and has over twenty-two years of management experience consisting of project planning, implementation, support & management experience. She demonstrates the ability to manage, interpret, and complete time-driven projects, producing successful outcomes, and cost-saving solutions. Her leadership skills include details in problem-solving skills, open communication, and establishing and maintaining trust. Her determination, discipline, and dedication to working hard, learning, and taking notes have helped her achieve her goals. She wants to improve the economic well-being and the quality of life in the community and learn more about the policies, programs and activities sought after in Oakland. She believes that staying positive and dedicated will create change.

09/20/2023

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Lloyd A. Edwards, a former member of the Oakland Metro Chamber's Executive Committee. He was not just a remarkable media professional but also a trailblazer and an inspiration to many in the industry. Lloyd's contributions to the world of broadcasting and journalism were nothing short of remarkable.

Mr. Edwards embarked on his media career as a Bay Area broadcaster, writer, and producer at the Golden West Network and KSFO, where he dedicated himself to covering local politics, the state legislature, and local affairs. His commitment to delivering high-quality journalism and his passion for storytelling set him apart in the field.

One of Lloyd's most notable achievements at KSFO was breaking the color barrier for broadcasters. He courageously walked in and boldly offered to work for a mere $1 per hour to prove that he had what it took to succeed in the industry. This courageous act not only showcased his determination but also opened doors for future generations of broadcasters.

For those who wish to convey their condolences, donations payable to the East Bay Community Foundation indicating “Lloyd A. Edwards Educational Fund” in the memo line can be mailed to: East Bay Community Foundation, c/o Director of Donor Services, DeDemonico Building, 200 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612.
