On September 21, credit bureaus will provide credit freezes at no cost. This is a good thing--to a point. Although in the past, these bureaus took days to freeze and then a few days to unfreeze accounts, now they are required to freeze accounts by the next business day and unfreeze within an hour. Will they be able to execute such a dramatic shift in procedure without hiccups? We’ll see. We have been getting regular articles about this new free service and having been in this area of specialty for over a decade, I kept waiting for an article that told the whole story in one piece. So far it hasn’t happened, so I want to bridge the gap between the typical articles that have addressed the crime of identity theft and the credit freeze.
This past weekend, the Chamber’s Annual Harbor Days Festival drew tens of thousands of locals and visitors to the Oceanside Harbor. Oceanside’s “Street Fair at the Beach”, featured over 200 vendors in our Arts, Crafts and Food booth areas, a Pirate Village, Nail 'n' Sail Competition, Military displays, Public Safety displays, music, a beer garden and more.
The event was presented by Tri-City Medical Center and Genentech.
If you find yourself less-than satisfied with your 9 – 5 life, maybe it’s time to break the chains of cubicle confinement.
Prior to the dawn of the internet age, most young men and women aspired for a trade job, which often meant high wages and union protection. However, the millennial generation has shifted toward technology as the industry-of-choice. This has left plenty of open opportunities in high-paying, hands-on jobs, many of which don’t require a degree, opting instead to rely on more quantifiable determiners of proficiency, specifically on-the-job training, apprenticeship programs, certifications, and licensure. Examples of these types of jobs include welding, electrical work, and CNC milling among others.

So, what exactly is team building and what benefits does it bring? Team building is the creation of cohesive working groups to achieve organizational goals. Its benefits include:
• Develops a sense of purpose among employees who feel devoted towards the direction and results attained by the team.
• Team building also fosters a sense of trust among the group’s members. Mutual trust built by team building exercises allows staff members to depend more on each other hence becoming more productive and efficient as a unit.
• Team building also acts as a tool for easing conflicts among workers. Due to the diverse number of personalities found in any business, unnecessary disputes and conflicts may arise. Team building plays a crucial role in easing these disputes by letting staff bond with each other and get accustomed to each other’s traits.

On Tuesday August 21st, the Oceanside Chamber’s Oceanside Young Professional Network (OYPN) did a tour of Solutions for Change led by their Development Associate, Forrest Folen. The tour started at their main campus at 722 W. California Ave in Vista where their resident housing is located. CEO Chris Megison, a former marine, was available for a Q & A session after telling members the story of how deeply he and his wife were moved by a young girl living at a homeless shelter they were helping at in 1999 that they decided to form Solutions for Change that same year. Since then, Chris and his organization have changed the lives of over 2,200 children and their families through their organization.
The Oceanside Chamber held a reception Monday, August 13, 2018 to unveil its newest publication: Celebrating 75 Years, Women Marines on Camp Pendleton. The release of the magazine came exactly 75 years ago when the first woman Marine arrived at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
The reception was attended by Col. Philip G. Antekeier, Col. Jeffrey Holt and Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss. Women Marines, both retired and active duty, who were featured in the magazine, were also in attendance, along with dozens of others, including Sgt. Maj. Grace A. Carle (Ret). She was the last to serve as Sergeant Major of Women Marines from 1974-1976. At the age of 95, she proudly stood to be acknowledged with the other Women Marines.
The Oceanside Chamber is Oceanside's leading business and community resource.
