SVLG’s Infrastructure Week has so much to offer! Aside from our virtual Forum, where we will discuss High Speed Rail, Large Scale Infrastructure Projects, and What’s Missing in the Middle, we will have an opportunity for members to get together at our in-person Member Mixer hosted by HNTB.
We will also be ending the week with a Community Build Day in partnership with Rebuilding Together and hosted by Republic Urban. We look forward to seeing you at one or all of these events.
We at SVLG know housing and transportation go together, so we’re inviting you to SVLG’s first Infrastructure Member Mixer, graciously hosted by HNTB, featuring movers and shakers throughout Silicon Valley in both housing and transportation. Come mix and mingle with decision makers who are helping move Silicon Valley infrastructure forward.
The mixer will be held at HNTB’s North San Jose main office with food, drinks, and great conversation provided.
Space is limited.

A little bit about who we are helping:
This 75-year-old homeowner came to the United States after the Fall of Saigon in 1975 with her husband for the chance of freedom. When she was in Vietnam, she was attending law school but was not able to complete her studies due to the war. Her husband was in the Vietnamese Army and fought in the Vietnam War. Even with all she has been through, losing her home and starting over in a new country, she remains gracious and thankful for every opportunity she and her family have received. They first arrived in Eureka, California to get accustomed to the United States and obtain their education at the local college. She studied business administration at Humboldt State. Due to having children and a part time job, she wasn’t able to get her degrees. They moved to San Jose in 1979 for employment opportunities and soon had their two daughters. Together, they saved every penny and bought their first home in 1982. Together, they raised two children. Her daughter works at Kaiser and their son works as a recruiter. The homeowner worked at California First National Bank for 20 years as a teller and then moved up to a managerial role. After her career in banking ended, she worked for a business company doing retail work. Her husband worked for a lumber company working very hard throughout his career in manual labor. In her spare time, the homeowner enjoys cooking, playing the piano and helping to take care of her three grandchildren. She helps them with homework and helps with their distant learning. Prior to the pandemic, the homeowner was active in her Buddhist Temple community. The homeowner and her husband are thankful to be in good health and in good spirits. Their home can use a coat paint to help protect this 1970s home and keep it strong for many more years to come.
