The Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee is formed by a very dedicated group of business people who continually give to our community. Throughout the year, this dynamic group works with the Chamber to further its goals and to organize the Business After Hours Mixers and Ribbon Cutting Celebrations. Each year the Ambassador Committee chooses one Ambassador that they feel deserves recognition for their exemplary dedication and participation as an Ambassador.

Congratulations to Lucas Mijares, Chair of the Ambassador Ribbon Cutting Committee, voted 2016 Ambassador of the Year!

Lucas Mijares, Financial Advisor at Edward Jones is one of the most active members of the Chambers Ambassadors.  Lucas brings a fresh approach and new ideas to many of our activities.  He also provides new techniques and a social media approach to his communication regarding our events.  He organizes and orchestrates the many Ribbon Cutting ceremonies provided for our local business.He is a dedicated contributor and a joy to work with. 

Lucas has the energy and attitude to move the “Buttes.”  It is evident how important family, community, trust and dependably are to him by the work that he does.  “Lucas provides his clients with the personal focus required to help them design plans to achieve their financial goals. Lucas says, “There’s two stages of retirement planning. There’s an accumulation phase, that most individuals are aware of. However, possibly equally important is the distribution phase. In order for our clients to not outlive their money, there must be a methodical plan regarding how the money is distributed back to the client, and how to invest it during such a crucial stage of one’s life. Outside of retirement planning, Edward Jones provides protection services such as: life insurance, disability insurance, fixed and variable annuities, and long term care insurance. These services also help plan for one’s estate, assuring that the client’s money does what the client intended for it to do, when he or she is no longer here to make that decision. No matter the specific goal, Lucas and his staff will work side by side with you to develop and keep you on track to achieve those goals.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, Lucas believes that his commitment to gaining a full and comprehensive understanding of what his clients needs and goals are is the only way to coach them and help them achieve exactly what they are working toward.  He is thorough in helping individuals and families understand what direction they are moving in before they invest their money. He also emphasizes the importance of understanding the level of risk they are comfortable accepting when investing so they can balance it with the steps necessary to reach long-term goals and not sacrifice the life they are accustomed to. Lucas prides himself in his transparency about fees and commissions, and explains in great detail the associated costs of investing.

Whether you’re planning for retirement, saving for college for children or grandchildren, or just trying to protect the financial future of the ones you care for the most, Lucas can work with you to develop specific strategies to help you achieve your goals. He can also monitor your progress to help make sure you stay on track or determine if any adjustments need to be made. Throughout it all, Lucas is dedicated to providing you stellar client service. 

Lucas has the backing of the entire Edward Jones team.  He has the support of thousands of people and advanced technology to ensure his clients receive the most current and comprehensive guidance. In addition, they welcome the opportunity to work with your attorney, accountant and other trusted professionals to deliver a comprehensive strategy that leverages everyone’s expertise.
