We, at the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, take great pride in helping Pleasanton remain among the very best cities in the country in which to live, work and raise a family while providing great support, services and value for approximately 725-member organizations whose financial support and engagement make it all possible.
Anchoring our efforts to be the catalyst for business and economic growth, the convener of leaders and influencers and the champion for a stronger and healthy community, and engage in political action is Pleasanton 2020: A Community Vision, a comprehensive local public policy agenda comprised of more than 50 measurable citywide objectives.
Our Board of Directors, Economic Development & Government Relations Committee and the Business and Community Political Action Committee lead a concerted effort to help ensure the local economy remains strong, generating the revenue needed to sustain the very highest quality public services and amenities synonymous with quality of life.
Supporting our efforts to serve and promote our members and the community are more than 40 dedicated Ambassador Committee members who are essential to the success of our member outreach efforts, monthly mixers, tradeshows and special events. The Business Connection newsletter – published bi-monthly and direct-mailed to more than 14,000 local households and businesses calls out more than 150-member organizations by name in each and every issue, generating millions of print impressions annually promoting local organizations. There are currently more than 50 Pleasanton Young Professionals honing their personal/professional development skills and engaging in community service throughout the year. Our Community Foundation oversees the Leadership Pleasanton Program and has produced more than 730 graduates over the past 30 years.
Last but certainly not least is our talented staff of five who bring more than 65 years of combined experience to the table each day providing continuity and support to our more than 100 active volunteers.
