Celebrating 75 years of supporting the community
75th anniversary for the Chamber
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, one of the most engaging and successful chambers in the Bay Area, is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2021, and will be commemorating the occasion with a variety of captivating stories, news articles, and reflections from community leaders.
"One of our favorite memories was the mixers we hosted with fellow members. It was a great opportunity for a small business like ours to host one of the more popular networking events the chamber puts on. It was great for us and our co-hosts to showcase our businesses while sharing in the expenses. I think the exposure to the Pleasanton Community and fellow members was significant for us. As a sign company, people remember more about your business and what you do when they can see your shop and all the types of signs we fabricate. I know we picked up new clients from those mixers. Many times, months or even years later, clients mentioned that they remembered us because they attended our mixers."
-Todd Moberg, 2017 board chair
