  • From the Board Chairman ~ 2021

    Having been a member of the Los Altos Chamber of Commerce for 24 years, I am honored and excited to serve as this year’s Chair!  I welcome 2021 and all the promises that it brings for change and new opportunities for Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.

    Last year was a very challenging year for the business community.  Our Chamber was one of the Change Leaders in the Silicon Valley and helped to promote businesses in Los Altos as well as assist our business community in finding new resource, as well as creating new resources. 

    Our mission, as your Chamber, is to "encourage and promote businesses and to stimulate a vibrant economy in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills."  Specifically, the Los Altos Chamber of Commerce has four core functions:

    • Creating a strong local economy
    • Promoting the City of Los Altos and the Town of Los Altos Hills
    • Representing the interests of business with government
    • Providing networking and marketing opportunities for our members

    We now serve as the Visitors Center and we have created a wonderful new Los Altos Magazine which helps us to showcase Los Altos and all that we have to offer!  We have helped to create new ways to promote business, such as “Lunch Mobs” (when dining is permitted), “Restaurant Takeout Week,” the Community Raffle, and monthly business educational presentations. 

    Although we were not able to hold our annual events such as “State of the Cities” or our annual golf tournament, we were able to hold virtual events which drew great crowds and enabled us to help bring our community together.  We hope that the “live” events will come back this year.

    I invite you to get involved in our Chamber Community!   We are unsure what this new year will bring to Los Altos, but one thing is for sure, the Chamber of Commerce will help to lead the way back into a viable and vibrant shopping, cultural and culinary destination.
