Arnold Schwarzenegger to address Chamber of Commerce in L.A.

August 4, 2011 |  4:46 pm


Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will address American Chamber of Commerce executives early Thursday evening in Los Angeles, a rare public appearance in the wake of his marriage troubles and revelations that he fathered a child out of wedlock.

The focus of his talk will be comparatively mundane -- and very likely to be appreciated by the business-minded convention attendees.

The agenda includes honoring the former governor for his work on political reform, on improving the state’s infrastructure and for “job-promoting legislation,” in the words of an event organizer. This legislation includes measures on workers' compensation and tax credits for the film industry.

Schwarzenegger, in turn, is expected to praise the local chamber and its executives from around the country for their support of such initiatives.

The event takes place at the new Marriott at L.A. Live.
