Supporting Our Region!
Hello, my name is Eric J Lund.
I first thank my family for supporting and being patient with me through the years. Having a balanced life is a challenge, indeed, only through the strong support of my wife, sons, daughter, relatives and friends, have I been blessed in so many ways in my life. Truly, a huge thank you, to each of you.
In my professional life, I work with an amazing team and Board of Directors at the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce in support of our organization, businesses, tourism and our regional communities. We have successfully produced great improvements in assisting small to large business start, grow and be successful in our region. This is truly a great calling and it is a joy that we are able to contribute to our local economy and our communities in such a positive way.
Our efforts to organize the region and end homelessness in our communities has been a priority leadership issue to deal with and I am proud of the way our community has come together to solve this serious problem. We have recently formed the San Diego East County Homeless Task Force and I invite you to get involved by volunteering or donating to help us end homelessness.
I have enjoyed working for many years with a brilliant team of professionals to help promote San Diego as a desirable tourism destination. You might think it is easy to attract people to San Diego and that is partially true, however, in today's world their are many competitors for the visitor market. San Diego has to do it's best to remain a viable visitor destination through strong marketing and promotion to support our local economy and jobs.
It has also been my honor to teach at Grossmont and Southwestern Colleges. I have been working in education for more than seventeen years! I really appreciate the support of my colleagues at both campuses. Guiding students and helping them find great business careers is amazing. Helping them to pursue and realize their dreams is my mission. It is critical that we support our students and our communities so that we may compete effectively in the global marketplace.
I hope you find your passion and pursue it to the fullest and enjoy a life full of service and joy!
