We also have an Ambassador Committee that meets the first Thursday of every month, as well as the Silicon Valley Young Professionals (SVYP).

Request a Membership Benefits Review – Call the Chamber and speak to one of our team members to schedule a meeting to review your membership benefits.   We will spend as much time as you can afford reviewing our “Membership Tool Kit”.

Not only will your Chamber be organizing and promoting the programs and events outlined here, we will be continuing our advocacy for the business community and adding new programs and seminars based on your feedback.

We need your engagement to help us succeed in continuing our efforts in giving your business the power to grow.  Working together, 2014 will be successful for all of us!
