Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, April 15th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly luncheon to hear from Pat Ellington of Incredible Journey and Eric Speier of 5 Elements Entertainment with an IEA update. 

Since Pat Ellington began her career in the field of corrections for 33 years. During this time, she was also a Criminal Justice professor for 25 years. If she learned one thing from both of these careers, she learned to treat people with dignity and respect that they deserve. She brought this motto with her and began Incredible Journey, a travel company, in 2004.

Pat currently sits on the Board of the Long Beach Day Nursery and the Board of Harbor Area Halfway Houses that helps women find jobs after being in prison. Pat has been an EALB member for more ten years and was previously on the EALB board.

Pat gave us insight into her trip to New Zealand. It was a two-day flight to New Zealand. You can either take a non-stop flight or take a stop in Australia. When in New Zealand, Pat suggest to take the TranzAlpine train through most of New Zealand’s amazing scenery. It is considered the 9th best train ride in the world although Pat believes it might be pretty incredible to do during the winter. Her travels during her trip included a lot of hiking, 4 days’ worth of hiking through glacier country. Pat also explains that Holland America has great cruises through out New Zealand and if you go through an independent provider you will save money. Pat was able to get a two-week cruise in a suite for 3500 a person. 

If you want to have an Incredible Journey without all the hiccups and frustrations of your last vacation, call Pat. She is a cruise specialist and will advise you on how to maximize your cruising experience in all areas. In addition to cruises, Pat is an expert at Worldwide Travel. Pat will work with you to design the perfect trip and make your next vacation truly yours.
