Message from Board Chair
It's now April and we are 4 months into my year long tenure as Board Chair of the Chamber. So far so good. In March we hosted our first major Signature event of the year, the State of the City Dinner, and it was a resounding success, setting new records for attendance, sponsorship, and revenue. The State of the City Dinner is a night to celebrate our partnership with the City of San Rafael, review our accomplishments, and recognize our outstanding Chamber businesses and volunteers.
