What our members are saying
"Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful event and also for the follow up and attendee list. I've already received numerous emails and linked in connection requests from this event... priceless. It was so wonderful seeing so many friendly and familiar names and faces and I excitedly look forward to the next one. We truly appreciate all that you and the Chamber do for the businesses and community of Pleasanton and the region."

The Pleasanton Chamber partnered with the Tri-Valley Chambers (Dublin, Livermore, San Ramon and Danville) to host Tri-Valley Speed Networking last week. The popular virtual event is a wonderful opportunity to make more business connections in less time from the comfort of your own space. Attendees are sent to breakout rooms to meet one-on-one and connect with others, exchange information, and promote your business easily and effectively. Stay tuned for the next Chamber networking opportunity.

Blood donation remains essential activity
All blood types urgently needed
Our community urgently needs blood donors of all blood types. If you are healthy and eligible, please make an appointment to donate blood at Stanford Blood Center as soon as possible to make sure local patients have the critical blood products they need in the coming weeks. Plus, if you’ve recently recovered from COVID-19, you may be eligible to donate potentially lifesaving COVID-19 convalescent plasma for patients still fighting this illness, and get a $50 Visa gift card as a thanks for stepping up during this period of heightened need.

Have you always wanted to live in a model home?
