About the Chamber
In March 1906, a group of successful businessmen decided to form the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce in the agriculturally rich land discovered by Martin Murphy Jr. Their vision and dedication lay the foundation for a strong community and a vibrant economy. Today, the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce represents all types of businesses in Sunnyvale growing the chamber membership and the Chamber’s visibility throughout the region is very important to the Chamber. Our commitment to our long-term members, however, remains constant. Your success matters to us and we will continue to work diligently and effectively to promote the economic growth of our community and serve our members as their information and networking resource through the following actions:
The Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to helping local companies grow their business by taking the lead in programs and efforts that help strengthen the local economy and make our community a great place to do business.
We promote the community in many ways – including the annual art and wine festival and our Annual Murphy Awards black tie awards gala with such awards as the Athena Award® which honors outstanding business women in the community and Teacher of the Year Awards for both the Sunnyvale School District and the Fremont Union High School District. This event is typically held in February.
The Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce is proud to provide networking opportunities that in 2010 will bring thousands of people together at 33 different events to meet and exchange information about their businesses. In 2011 we will continue our partnership with the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce to hold Fifth Thursdays Joint Mixers.The Sunnyvale Chamber has also been parterning with other local Chambers of Commerce to bring our members events such as S3 with the San Jose & Santa Clara Chambers of Commerce. Many of our members boast increased business due to opportunities they make for themselves through the Chamber.
We represent the interests of business to government by speaking out on local, regional, state, and national issues impacting our community. Our highest priority will be keeping the city focused on the downtown redevelopment and the impact on our downtown businesses.
These are just a few examples of how the Sunnyvale Chamber is dedicated to helping you and other companies grow your business. As you consider all the ways that the Chamber has provided opportunities for our business community to prosper for the past 104 years, we believe that this is one investment you must continue.
