Here at the Sacramento Metro Chamber, we celebrate our members because they make the choice to engage and invest in our community. Whether it is a micro business like the tax accountant you used this year, or a small business like the coffee shop around the corner, or a medium business like the neighborhood grocery store, or a large business who serves your needs in so many ways, these are the members who support an opportunity economy–an economy that supports options and access to jobs.
It is important that not just the Metro Chamber, but the region celebrate the businesses who choose every day to make an impact on our regional quality of life. When we have opportunities, our region thrives. That means opportunities for housing, education, access to quality food, better air quality, thriving parks, and improved amenities. Our region’s quality of life is dependent on having a strong and vibrant opportunity economy, and our members get it.
The Metro Chamber partners every day with our businesses to help lead conversations that will bring about a stronger tomorrow. We are looking for regional solutions that will help us activate our amenities like our Sacramento riverfront, improved access to mobility and reduce congestion on our freeways through a stronger and safer transit system, and reminding the world of our amazing bounty as it relates to agriculture and food. Day by day we work to find the best solutions to bring about the opportunities our region wants and deserves.
We hope that you will join us, not just through membership, but in celebrating those businesses that are investing in our region, our economy, and you.
