cdtIn support of the delegation trip, Chamber President & CEO Jerry Sanders – along with Paola Avila, Vice President of International Business Affairs – held a joint press conference with CDT (Tijuana Economic Development Council). As the D.C. delegation represents the largest binational delegation to Washington, D.C., Gabriel Camarena, CDT’s new president, emphasized the importance of Tijuana’s private sector joining the delegation, which advocates for and benefits the entire Cali-Baja region.

The Chamber D.C. team is also hard at work building an astounding agenda for our delegates. So far, confirmed meeting and guests include:

  • Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
  • McKinsey & Company – global management consulting firm who will discuss dynamics of the Presidential election and their Presidential Transition Initiative
  • National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center
  • San Diego Congressional Delegation
  • Office of Senator Diane Feinstein

The D.C. team is also proud to announce the addition of two very exclusive meetings to the delegation agenda:

Breakfast with the Mexican Ambassador to the United States

During this intimate breakfast meeting, recently-appointed Ambassador Carlos Sada will detail his strategy to improve the national rhetoric and promote relations between Mexico and United States, which has faced considerable criticism since the start of the 2016 presidential election.

Breakfast with Big Data

Part IT and part politics, this breakfast session will examine how technology and data collection have been used to aid modern-day elections. From your age to your family size and the coffee shop you most frequent, our D.C. political consultants will explain how big data is leading the most innovative political campaigns.

As election season gets closer, now is the time to remind our nation’s leaders of the important issues facing our region. We hope you will join us and help bring the voice of San Diego’s business community to our nation’s capital! (APPLY HERE)
