highlights of our partnerships

Launched in fall 2005 as a way to engage the University in the work and activities of our regional chambers of commerce, and equally, to engage the chambers in the work and activities of the University. Since the inception of the program, nearly 100 University employees have stepped forward to champion the work of the chambers by attending mixers, networking events, luncheons, and installation galas and, in some instances, by participating in committee work or serving on boards of directors. Each partner chamber has an assigned lead, a “champion,” supported by a team of volunteers, most of whom reside in the chamber’s community.

Together with the support of the City of San Marcos, the Chamber launched the Discover Our Recovery Business Safety Promise. The Chamber’s program is designed to help business owners communicate their commitment to following all public health orders and guidelines from the State of California, the County of San Diego, the City of San Marcos and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help protect their employees, customers and the community. Business owners that make the Discover Our Recovery Business Safety Promise below can display the decal in their windows to let customers know that the businesses has committed to take all the County’s recommended precautions to help provide a safe environment.
