The Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce & Convention-Visitors Bureau Board of Directors approved the formation of the Santa Clara Chamber Political Action Committee (SCCPAC) in March 2010. The SCCPAC operates as a separate organization (IE #1327039) with a separate Board of Directors and is separately funded from the Chamber. No Santa Clara Chamber membership dues or funds will be utilized for the SCCPAC. All funds collected for the SCCPAC are done through separate donations and gifts.
The Santa Clara Chamber PAC takes pride in building and maintaining a community that is business friendly. As a result, we keep a tight eye on all upcoming elections and the candidates to ensure Santa Clara remains as the Silicon Valley’s most influential city!
