Our long term association with the Pleasanton Chamber (member for 30+ years) coupled with the wonderful opportunity for me to serve on the Board of Directors for five years, including Chairman in 2018, is an experience I will forever cherish as a business professional and long-time Pleasanton resident."

To Tri-Valley With Love
Mobile “Promise Pass” Incentivizes Spending at Nearly 100 Local Businesses
The pandemic may be waning, but local businesses are still teetering. To address this challenge, the East Bay cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and the Town of Danville, have partnered with Visit Tri-Valley (VTV) to launch an unprecedented regional campaign to drive spending in local businesses. Dubbed “To Tri-Valley with Love,” the campaign asks residents and visitors alike to spend at least $25 per week at local businesses instead of online and in big-box stores. Sweetening the deal, the cities have created a mobile Promise Pass that offers a slew of discounts at nearly 100 businesses, with new offers added regularly.
Let's get to immunity
It's okay to have questions.
Everyone deserves answers.
The Pleasanton Chamber is committed to keeping you up to date on the most important news and information about the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. As this virus continues to impact our community, vaccines are one of the most important tools to end the pandemic. Our county is working hard to continue making the vaccines available to everyone as soon as possible, so that every resident has the opportunity to be vaccinated.
