2013 has been a significant year for San Francisco, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and the Bay Area business community.
In addition to the opening of the new Bay Bridge, hosting the America’s Cup and welcoming #BatKid, San Francisco again set the pace for economic recovery across the state and much of the nation. This year, our city boasted an impressive six percent job growth rate with notable gains occurring across all industry sectors. By any measure, San Francisco is a model for economic resurgence.
The Chamber is proud to have helped play a role in our city’s economic growth this year and the steps we have taken together the last few years to position the city for a swift recovery from the Great Recession. From supporting job-creating incentives, to urging good government reforms, to advancing economy-boosting development, the Chamber has been focused on accelerating our city’s economic recovery and forging a path to sustained prosperity for years to come.
It has also been an exciting year for the Chamber. This fall, we debuted a bold new logo and brand identity to better reflect our organization, our membership and our city’s unique business community. We relocated our office space to better serve our organization and advance our mission. And we strengthened the Chamber’s leadership team, welcoming several new members to our Board of Directors.
These accomplishments are important and would not be possible without the support of our members and partners. As the year comes to a close, we invite you to read more about our collective successes and how your support is helping to sustain a vibrant San Francisco.
We thank all our members for your continued participation in the Chamber, and we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
