“As I am planning/tweaking my business model for the next 5-6 years (somewhat of a year-end annual ritual) – I realize that I no longer need to carry workers compensation – I am, and will be, THE employee/owner – handling 95% of the work on an ongoing basis. So - I go to cancel my policy – but oh, no can do because it automatically renewed on November 1st and I was trying to cancel on November 12, the same day the invoice came to my office. Pay the full policy amount or off to collections this will go. What – me – NEVER. It wasn’t even the money as much as the principle. Why pay for something you do not need? But – what do I do?
I immediately called the El Dorado Hills Chamber and spoke to Debbie Manning. After explaining the situation – she put me in touch with Senator Gaines office – right there at Town Center. I spoke to their wonderful associate Monico – who took down my information and began checking into the situation. Three days later – I get a call from a supervisor from the “insurance company” – who tells me that indeed – these situations should be looked at on a case by case basis and that they will cancel my policy as of November 1 and I will be getting a full refund.
I got to tell you – this is one of the many things that the Chamber is here for – helping small businesses work through solutions. Thank you EDH Chamber and thank you to Monico in Senator Gaines’ office in Town Center.”

"Thank you for your and the EDH Chamber's assistance in engaging Senator Ted Gaines' office to help expedite the processing of our California Multiple Awards Contract (CMAS) with the State of California on June 19, 2013.
Prior to your involvement, we had been waiting almost four months for the
Department of General Services to complete their review of our application and the approval of our CMAS. (In our 25+ years of doing business with the State, this has never taken more than 45 days.) Moreover, this also meant that we were unable to respond to any business opportunities that might have come up during this review period, and we did miss out on several.
With your help, not only did we finally we get a response from DGS that they would begin reviewing our application, but they ultimately expedited the review so that on July 5th, just over two weeks from our initial discussions, we received our fully approved CMAS agreement, which will carry us through to mid-2017.
I can't thank you enough for your help and greatly appreciate what you were able
to accomplish in such a short period of time. I am very grateful and would
encourage any business to consider the unprecedented benefits that the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce can not only offer, but actually provide to its members!"

"We are very happy with the support the chamber has given to us as a new business in El Dorado Hills. We don't have a store front as we are wholesale in the business park but we do have a cafe up in Shingle Springs.......one thing Debbie did for us right off the bat was to get us into our local EDH farmers market. This was huge for us......."

"Sunbolt Energy Systems received great public exposure at the "Saturday Night in the Park" event. This was our first booth at a community event and we got an extremely good response along with over 20 qualified leads. The event was both entertaining and educational for the community. The price for the booth was affordable and the contacts we made were invaluable for our business. "Saturday Night in the Park" was a perfect opportunity to show our products and our expertise first hand to our local neighbors. The mix of music, food, and assorted vendors brings the community together in a positive fun-filled atmosphere which promotes business. We are interested in participating in all the Chamber's future local events!"
