Longtime Arcadia attorney James R. “Jim” Helms will be honored as an Arcadia Business Icon at the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Networking Breakfast on April 16, sponsored by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary. The monthly tribute is a joint presentation between the Chamber and the Arcadia Historical Society.
The guest speaker will be announced shortly.
Helms, who is also a former Mayor of Arcadia (1971-72) and Arcadia Citizen of the Year in 1979 and again in 2004 (one of only three people who have been honored twice), has been practicing law for more than 60 years and specializes in Estate planning, Probate, Business, Bar and court admissions. His Helms & Myers firm’s office at the eight-story white Towne Centre Building at 150 North Santa Anita Avenue, Suite 685, has some of the best views in Arcadia. He has been Judge Pro Tem, Superior Court, Law and Motion Probate since 1989.

As always, attendees of the Networking Breakfast (third Thursday of each month), sponsored by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary, not only enjoy a great breakfast buffet and valuable networking with dozens of others, but also introduce themselves one at a time with a 30-second “elevator pitch.” In addition, they have a chance to win one of multiple gifts donated by members and attendees for a business card drawing, one of which is a free three-minute Business Spotlight, this month by last month’s winner.
Tickets to the breakfast, which runs from 7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m., are $20 when paid by the Tuesday in advance of the breakfast program ($25 at the door) and discounted to $15 for Chamber members who pay by the previous Tuesday ($20 at the door for Chamber members). Those who pay by the previous Friday will get their name and contact information on the popular Hot Sheet listing that is handed out to all attendees of the breakfast. No charge for those holding a Chamber All Access Pass.
