A Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Alameda Chamber of Commerce. I am proud to serve as Chair of the Board. The Alameda Chamber was founded in 1929; I first joined the Chamber when I moved to Alameda six years ago. I was most impressed with the depth and scope of the programs, initiatives, and support it provided to the business community.

There is something here for everyone’s benefit. We offer many networking and education opportunities, as well as special events. There are also opportunities to connect by getting involved with one of our committees. Most of our programs are now being conducted virtually, yet our attendance remains high.

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. The Chamber has been actively involved with the City of Alameda to support our members and all businesses on our island. We also have some new programs in the works that will be rolled out when we can resume meeting in person again.

I look forward to another year of growth, innovation and support for all of our members.
