The San Fernando Chamber of Commerce has moved out of the South Brand Boulevard building owned by the city so that earthquake repairs can be made. Bruce Cohen, chief executive officer of the chamber, said the office moved last week so the city could replace five walls for about $50,000. "This was an old fire station," Cohen said. "Most of the fire station held up very well." But he said the building suffered a lot of cosmetic damage from the Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake.

Since joining the chamber 10 years ago, Sandoval, 36, has risen quickly through the ranks, first as a volunteer, then as a policymaker and policy implementer on the Board of Directors. "I look at this as a very positive career move and a chance to bring ideas and enthusiasm to the job each day," said Sandoval, who has sidelined his marketing company to take the new position.

A former mayor and a retired teacher are among six local women who will be honored Wednesday for their contributions to the city. More than 50 women have been recognized by the San Fernando Chamber of Commerce for their cultural and economic contributions to the city since the annual event was established a decade ago, chamber spokesman Joe Sandoval said. "It's a difficult choice because each year there are a lot of standout women and not all of them are high profile," Sandoval said.

Rep. Howard Berman (D-Mission Hills) will address the San Fernando Chamber of Commerce at a luncheon meeting Wednesday. Berman, who visits the chamber annually, will present his outlook for the coming congressional session and his support for President Clinton's failed bid to renew presidential "fast-track" trade authority, officials said. Fast-track authority would allow the president to negotiate broad trade agreements over which Congress has a simple yes-or-no vote.

The medical director of the San Fernando Mental Health Center will discuss ways to deal with homeless people who loiter at or near businesses Wednesday at a San Fernando Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Psychiatrist Alex Kopelowicz, the center's medical director, recommends reaching out to transients by giving them "Homeless Emergency Help Cards" that list social service agencies, rather than trying to intimidate or act aggressively toward them.
