Local Government Days

The Leadership Group strives to plan one Local Government Day every month. Staff facilitates these unique opportunities so that member company representatives can better connect with elected officials at the local level. These immensely popular roundtables often facilitate discussions around the crux of local politics: Transportation, housing, energy, environmental policy, and more. In 2018, Local Government Days have been conducted for the Cities of Campbell, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and others.
