Economic Vitality Program

The San Rafael Chamber is helping to strengthen the local economy through our Business Retention & Expansion Program, with the support partners Marin Economic Forum (MEF) and the City of San Rafael. 

As the lead organization on this program, we have developed a systematic outreach plan to visit business owners and conduct surveys to identify obstacles and common themes for businesses operating in San Rafael. In working with MEF, we have developed key metrics used to analyze trends and issues identified in the program. At the end of the program each year, we compile a report that is delivered at October's Forecasting the Future Marin Economic Conference.

Please contact Joanne Webster, President & CEO, if you have questions or are interested in supporting this program: jwebster@srchamber.com.

Take the brief 2017-2018 BRE survey and fax or email it back to frontdesk@srchamber.com. Your input helps us identify areas where we can work to improve our local economy.

This program is overseen by the Chamber's Economic Vitality Committee

EVC 2016

The committee monitors city regulations, advocates for streamlining the development process, supports new development and promotes local business. It works to improve the development permitting process by monitoring the Design Review Board and Planning Commission activities. The group also advocates for specific issues like sign ordinances, reduced business fees, parking, traffic, and other governmental regulations.
