SVCCC offers complimentary membership to govt officials


To enhance more accessible business-government relationships between cities, the Silicon Valley Central Chamber of Commerce (SVCCC) has offered a complimentary SVCCC’s membership to elected officials.

The first-of-its-kind announcement was made at the SVCCC Silicon Valley annual Mayors’ Breakfast event, held on March 7, and was attended by Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gilmore; Sunnyvale Mayor Larry Klein; Mountain View Mayor Pat Showalter; Cupertino Mayor Sheila Mohan and Milpitas Mayor Carmen Montano.

The announcement was made by SVCCC Indian American CEO Harbir K. Bhatia.

“As a part of our objective, we believe it’s important to connect our civil servants to the business community to better understand the needs and opportunities. The SVC Chamber is here to ‘Educate, Advocate, and Connect’ in ways that help our businesses and community thrive. By providing this complimentary membership, we hope to make it easier and more affordable for elected officials to connect with and be more accessible for the business community,” said Bhatia.

It highlights the SVCCC’s commitment to the community and honors city, state, and national elected officials, appointed representatives, and government employees for their service with access to the Chamber’s programming as members and allowing a greater connection with businesses and community.

As a regional chamber, SVCCC works toward bringing the Silicon Valley business community together with its elected officials. This announcement is one of a myriad of steps in the SVCCC’s programs to be the platform to successfully bring about that conversation.

For over 75 years, the SVC Chamber has served the Silicon Valley business community as influential representatives by advocating, connecting, and educating for the growth and sustainability of its business members, to uplift and advance the community. Located in Santa Clara, the SVC Chamber of Commerce is made up of a group of business leaders who will help grow and shape the future of Silicon Valley.
