2018 Leadership Delegation to Sacramento

February 27 @ 12:00 pm - February 28 @ 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Lead the charge as the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce heads to Sacramento to bring local, regional and state leaders together to discuss policy priorities that are in the best interest of business and job creation in the San Diego-Baja mega-region on Tuesday, February 27th and Wednesday, February 28th, 2018.

Similar to the San Diego Regional Chamber’s popular Mission to Washington, DC and Binational Delegation to Mexico City, this trip provides the opportunity to participate in exclusive high-level meetings, discuss industry-specific issues, and network with regional and state officials and business leaders.

The trip to Sacramento is critically important in sharing the needs of San Diego’s binational business community with elected officials and agencies at the state level. It is up to us to make sure that our leaders in Sacramento understand how to help businesses grow by making our voices heard on the issues that are pertinent to our mega-region. The policy areas and issues we will be addressing on the trip include:

– Transportation & Infrastructure Funding
– Housing Supply & Affordability
– Climate Change
– Water
– Improving International Trade & Commerce
– Innovation
– 2018 Political Landscape
