The Chamber’s San Diego Young Leaders (SDYL) held a joint meeting with the Building Industry Association’s y|Gen group to discuss San Diego’s housing crisis and its impact on the city’s economy and workforce. While y|Gen specifically focuses on fostering professional growth in the home building industry, SDYL takes a general approach, allowing its members to learn various aspects of San Diego’s largest industries and how challenges within one affect business overall.
The meeting was an excellent opportunity for participants to form new relationships while learning about the housing crisis from a panel of experts:
- Randy Goodson, CEO of Accretive Investments, Inc. and Lilac Hills representative,
- Phil Rath, Principal at Rath Miller, LLC,
- Russ Vallone of MarketPointe Realty Advisors, and
- Marcela Escobar-Eck, Principal at Atlantis Group.
SDYL’s next meeting and mixer will be Wednesday, August 31 at the San Diego Zoo. San Diego Zoo Global’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Tim Mulligan, will deliver a special presentation on leadership and workplace resiliency.
