CCA's focus on economic growth and community revitalization in Los Angeles serves as an influential voice that we always listen to when we consider our approach to policy issues and community needs.

CCA is clearly the leader for the new Downtown. I have been involved with similar organizations and can say that working with CCA has been an all-around rewarding experience, both personally and professionally. It allowed me to participate in the metamorphose that is taking place all around us, creating a world-class center for business, art, and entertainment.

Chris Martin
CEO & Co-Chairman
AC Martin & Martin Project Management

Some hear CCA and think Downtown. I hear CCA and think the future of Los Angeles County. From the sound stages of the entertainment industry to the Office of the Mayor, the voice of CCA can be heard across the city.

Vice President, State Government Affairs
Motion Picture Association of America

CCA is one of the hardest working, results-oriented business organizations in Los Angeles County. They understand the unique needs of the entertainment industry and will use their mighty voice to protect our jobs, workers, and growth.

Juan Camacho
Vice President, State & Local Government Affairs

CCA is fantastic. The Ace development wouldn't have gone so smoothly without the work Carol and her staff put in to help us with our permits and entitlements. Everything they do is top shelf.

CCA is a tremendous resource to Brookfield Properties in helping us to maximize the value of our real estate portfolio. Whether it is advocacy at City Hall, help with our office and retail leasing programs or special events, CCA adds value to our bottom line.

Bert Dezzutti
Executive Vice President-Western Region
Brookfield

CCA lets us leverage new business opportunities, keeps us up-to-date with current events and gives us a voice on issues that involve our community. With CCA's help, Downtown has become a world class center for business, art and entertainment.

Starting with the development of STAPLES Center, continuing with L.A. Live and now with the plans for Farmers Field, there has been no better advocate for Downtown Los Angeles than CCA and Carol Schatz. Their efforts and support have led to the development of a vibrant and revitalized Downtown. Their work has resulted in a business climate that encourages additional financial investment and the continued economic growth of our region. We are grateful for their partnership.
