Join Us On Our Economic Exploration To Major U.S. Cities.

Every year we pick a city and travel there to meet with its local government, influencers, and decision-makers to discuss their economical, social, and cultural success. We do this with the intention of bringing new ideas, perspectives, and inspiration home to our community leaders.

The Region's Exclusive Economic Development Program

The Annual Study Mission is The San Jose Chamber's signature economic development program that features a 3-day intensive on-site tour for our members and key stakeholders to learn more about the public policy solutions, public-private partnerships, and economic strategies that have defined the growth of another city or region.

Travel with San Jose's Most Distinguished Leaders and Stakeholders.

In the past, a delegation comprised 80 delegates from the SJ Chamber Board of Directors, elected officials, city staff, key business leaders, and community leaders who explored and studied the various issues and public policies that have and continue to impact major cities in the United States.

As we look toward the next trip and the immense possibilities for businesses to grow and expand in our region, we are also looking at how we can help improve our city through the lens of arts and entertainment, neighborhood beautification, and social and cultural vibrancy.
