Trustegrity: Forming groups in the Tri-Valley to help professionals
Professional community of trusted advisors
Following the successful launch of the Livermore/Pleasanton Founders Group in 2020, Trustegrity is now looking to add new members and start additional groups. They have joined the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce to help Chamber Members find a group of trusted advisors with whom they can connect, confide and collaborate.

Trustegrity is a nationwide organization that helps professionals grow their business through collaboration. Members share ideas, solve problems, and develop meaningful relationships.

Trustegrity Groups typically consist of 15-20 seasoned professionals who have been invited to share their experiences and help other members solve their biggest challenges. Groups meet once a month and members meet in smaller Reconnect Power Groups in between meetings.

Trustegrity has four groups in the East Bay in the 580/680 Corridor. Chamber Members are encouraged to come visit a meeting because Trustegrity is better experienced than explained.
Welcome New Members
Congratulations to these new members that have recently joined the Chamber

Tri-Valley Career Center Networking and Hiring Opportunity
Coffee Break with Employers
Hosted by the Tri-Valley Career Center, this is a networking opportunity in addition to a hiring one. Come meet local employers looking for great candidates at the Tri-Valley Career Center, and enjoy a cup of coffee while you're here.

The Coffee Break events are similar to job fairs, but on a much smaller scale. We typically only register 5-15 employers at a time to make it a bit more casual. It is like a meet-and-greet (with coffee and goodies). However, we do have some space if you might want to interview someone or talk to them privately.
Pleasanton 2025 Forum
Meeting held in hybrid format
Every second Wednesday of the month at 7:30 a.m., the Chamber brings stakeholders together to focus community resources, time and talent to achieve greater understanding of issues, obstacles and opportunities related to Pleasanton 2025: A Community Vision.

The next Pleasanton 2025 Forum is set for Wednesday, November 10 and will feature a discussion with the City of Pleasanton on the 15% water reduction mandate.
Handling the Holidays
Free Grief Workshop from Hope Hospice
This Grief Workshop from Hope Hospice is offered as an interactive online experience. For people who are grieving the death of a loved one, the winter holiday season can be painful. In a year that was full of unusual circumstances, holiday gatherings may look different or perhaps not happen at all out of caution as we continue to keep physically distant.
Please call to reserve your spot (925) 829-8770.
Shop Small - Support Local
Let's go Shop Small
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce encourages our community to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses, not only on November 27 (Small Business Saturday) but throughout the holiday season. Shopping small can be as easy as purchasing a cup of coffee from your favorite neighborhood café or buying a gift from a local bookstore. For every $1 spent at a small business, $0.67 stays in the community. The bottom line is you’re supporting local small businesses and making a difference in our community. And when you Shop Small, the dollars you spend at a local business add up to more tax revenue to our city that supports our police, fire, roads and parks and city services.
Highlight Videos
Our Pleasanton, Let's Celebrate event was a success as we toasted to 75 years of the chamber supporting the community, and heard from the outstanding and deserving winners of our 57th annual Community Service Awards.
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce would like to thank our sponsors, golfers, contributors and volunteers and we've put together a video to share the fun of the day. Take a look here, and we hope to see you all at our golf tournament next year.
Celebrating 75 years of supporting the community
