Emerging Business Leaders Advisory Council

The mission of the Emerging Business Leaders is to educate and develop young individuals to become strong corporate, civic, and non-profit business leaders through promoting purposeful relationships within the Irvine community.

The Emerging Business Leaders group in the Greater Irvine Chamber strives to develop those looking to climb the professional ladder through networking, philanthropic, and learning opportunities. Though it is a group that was formed with the mindset of helping younger professionals find their footing in their respective careers, the EBL Group provides benefits for professionals in career transitions and/or someone looking to continue to hone their business and networking skills. This group has an energetic mix of members whose background range from non-profit organizations to Fortune 500 corporations.

The Emerging Business Leaders Advisory Council meets monthly on the first Friday at 11:00 a.m.


After Hours Mixer

The bi-monthly After Hours Mixers provide the opportunity for networking in a relaxed, social setting. Attendees represent a variety of industries and organizations, and the venues vary, enabling guests to sample cuisine from Orange County’s premier restaurants. The mixers are held on the second Tuesday of every other month from 5:30-7:30 PM.

Admission is FREE for Chamber members and $25 for visitors.
