• Business

    One of the primary objectives of SAMCEDA is to support, champion, recognize and bring attention to the San Mateo County business community. All too often the contributions made by business to the economic health and well being of a community are overlooked and under appreciated. For San Mateo County a healthy business community directly translates to a healthy community and SAMCEDA strives to spread that message in a variety of ways.
  • Economy

    In a new study commissioned by SAMCEDA and our Economic Vitality Research and Education Foundation we examine the changes in Labor Supply and Commute Patterns in San Mateo County. The understanding of labor demand coupled with existing data that illustrates the County’s labor demand volatility will assist business, government, non-profits, and education institutions on the primary drivers of employment growth and decline. It will guide our efforts to exploit the regional strengths in attracting new establishments and their related employment. It will also assist us with our workforce development efforts and the training needs of our current and future employers.
  • Policy

    Public policy is an area of primary involvement for SAMCEDA in its advocacy and leadership efforts. Focusing on national, state, regional and local legislation and policy initiatives, SAMCEDA’s broad, pro-business based approach provides for informed perspective and action on critical policy issues.
